Isaac Kremsky

I am enrolled as a PhD student in Biomedicine at Pompeu Fabra University as of April, 2012.  I received an M.S. in Computational Biology from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2010, and prior to that I received an M.A. in Physics from USC in 2007.  My Bachelor’s degree was in Physics and Mathematics.

My current research project involves understanding and modeling alternative splicing through computational techniques such as machine learning.  Particularly relevant to this aim are understanding the relationship between Pol2 elongation and pausing, the snRNP’s, SR proteins, and DNA binding factors such as CTCF and nucleosomes.
