Brian Lenny, MS

Bioinformatics Research Analyst, GWAS and WGS working group

Brian received his MS degree in Genetics and Molecular Biology from Washington University. His work there involved studying the relationship between different patterns of DNA methylation and transcription factor binding. This relationship was further explored by creating a Random Forest machine learning model that would predict gene expression based on the status of surrounding DNA methylation. As a Bioinformatics Research Analyst, Brian is now processes and analyzes genomic data and implements GWAS in order to identify genetic variants implicated in Alzheimer disease.
