Clara Pavillet

Wellcome Trust DPhil student (2018)


Clara is a Wellcome Trust DPhil student from the Medical Sciences DTC. She loves to use computer code to decipher genetic code, and joined Professor Nieduszynski’s group for her second rotation project to work on Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequence modelling with Dr. Michael Boemo. Training a Hidden Markov Model to detect sequence base analogues requires high accuracy read data. As such, Clara identified sequence-specific properties and patterns to develop a predictive model to identify potential error-prone positions.
