Liran Avda – Research Assistant

Liran did her B.Sc. in Computer Science and Biology (Bioinformatics) at Tel Aviv University, she did her lab project on recombination rates in C.elegance in the lab of Prof. Oded Rechavi, where she used bioinformatic tools to study the correlation between recombination rates, histone methylations and small RNAs across the C.elegans genome.

Her interest in using programming and bioinformatic tools to answer biological questions led her to join Prof. Ronen Zaidel-Bar’s lab as an research assistant, where she is trying to develop a C.elegans based model to study a monogenic human disease.
