Andrew Uzilov

Member of the Lowe Lab

Graduate Student (Sept 2007 - Mar 2013)

Bioinformatics PhD Program

University of California, Santa Cruz


I graduated from the University of Rochester (B.S. in Biochemistry, B.A. in Computer Science, both 2005), where I worked for Dave Mathews as an undergraduate. Then I spent two years bumming around Ian Holmes' lab at UC Berkeley.

I earned my PhD advised by Todd Lowe in the Lowe lab in March 2013. My latest whereabouts are likely to be found on my LinkedIn page.
