@University of Toronto, Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research (Part I)

In the past few days I have settled in Toronto, Canada, where I will stay until October this year. As a graduate student I will be working at the University of Toronto, Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research in the Charlie Boone's Lab.

My work will be mostly data analysis of S. cerevisiae screens by employing various statistical and machine learning methods to gain new knowledge about identification of yeast mutant strains with non-WT phenotype. Possibly I will also work on time-series analysis of actin patches in yeast cells to differentiate them. First impressions are great, I have already met some great people and am looking forward to meet some at the International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB12), which is held in Toronto in the next week and have a fortunate opportunity to attend.
