This is the holiday present for myself; what I did in the last 4 years as Director! I transformed my core fully geared with NGS! No addition of staff in the meantime, which means how efficient I was 😉 and how hard my staff worked! 18 papes I am counting for the year of 2018. Thank you, everyone!!!
Although this is a bit old, I’d like to thank Penn State College of Medicine’s marketing team to make it into such a nice news article!
We contributed to RNA-seq analyses on these two brain-related discoveries!
CD4 T cells control development and maintenance of brain-resident CD8 T cells during polyomavirus infection
WDR68 is essential for the transcriptional activation of the PRC1-AUTS2 complex and neuronal differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells
This is the first paper from me which included mutation finding from RNA-seq data! Congrats, Emily and Team Moldovan!
The paper has grown a lot!!! Congrats, Andrew!!!
I wanted to run the poll type of survey to my users and I tried to run one at the Core’s symposium yesterday but it was not well planned/designed, sorry… so I am running the poll here. Please go to below and answer 2 quick questions!
Thank you so much!
Free food and consultation, too!
Intro slide from me is as follows: https://prezi.com/view/enpjVR88ujDMB9an2mkJ/ …

Ion response to high demand!
Please go to the announcement page to sing up/take survey/get alarmed for future notifications!
Thank you so much!
My first student at PSU, Shauna, has successfully defended her master degree last week! How exciting!!! Hope we can publish her paper asap!!!
We also hired two new staff: Teodora (Associate Director) and Emmy (technologist). Please welcome them when you have a chance to stop by!
It’s been a challenging summer after losing 2 staff (1 temporary though) and we apologize for any inconveniences this might have given to the users. Having Teoroda and Emmy in full action, we will soon be back to our normal operation with quality data in reasonable turnaround time!
Thank you very much!
