Casey S. Greene, Ph.D.

Casey Greene from my lab successfully defended his Ph.D. today. The title of his dissertation is "Relief-based bioinformatics methods for the analysis of epistasis in genetic association studies". Nice job Casey!

Casey is off to the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University where he will be doing a postdoc with Dr. Olga Troyanskaya.

His dissertation chapters include the following papers:
