Jet [Yet] Mante - Graduate Research Assistant
I read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge specializing in my final year in plant sciences. My research project was "Quantifying Promoter Element Activation in Marchantia polymorpha Gemmae" which involved fluorescence microscopy and programming in python. The project was conducted in the Haseloff Lab (http://www.haseloff-lab.org/). Professor Nik Cunniffe supervised my literature review on Coupling Landscape-Scale Epidemic Models to Models of Atmospheric Dispersion.
Previous work includes using symbolic regression to study factors influencing antibody production in hamster ovarian cells (Dr. Duygu Dikicioglu - Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Cambridge) and the use of infrared spectroscopy for patent ductus arteriosis diagnostics (Dr. Valerie Chock - Stanford University School of Medicine; https://www.nature.com/articles/pr2016148).
Current ResponsibilitiesCurrently I am completing rotations in both the Alter and Myer labs.
