Sarah has extensive experience and expertise in bioinformatics and biostatistical analysis, with a focus on RNA-Seq and microarray gene expression analysis. She has supported a variety of research projects during her time at MSI in several disciplines, including cancer biology, immunology, and epidemiology. Sarah also develops and maintains clinical analysis pipelines for germline and exome DNA sequencing assays. Prior to joining MSI Sarah was a staff scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). At NIST she developed RNA controls and analysis methods to provide confidence in gene expression experiments. Her software package, the erccdashboard, is a widely used tool for QC analysis of gene expression experiments.
