Mihaela Pertea, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of MedicineMihaela Pertea’s website

Mihaela Pertea’s main research focus is in developing innovative and efficient methods to analyze large DNA sequence data sets in order to provide genome-scale understanding of cellular function. Her current and past research contributions integrate sophisticated machine learning techniques and statistical methods that answer questions such as: What are the exon-intron structures of genes; how do we use RNA sequencing to reconstruct the splice variants that are transcribed in different cell types and conditions; and how do we use sequence data to determine the levels of gene expression?
