Dr. Bryce Seifert is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow that graduated from Clemson University with his B.S. in Genetics before continuing his Ph.D. training at Baylor College of Medicine in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics. His graduate studies focused on the mechanisms underlying DNA repair gene expression in mouse embryonic stem cells (mouse ES cells). Specifically, he investigated the transcriptional regulation of nucleotide excision repair genes, and assessed changes in the DNA repair capacity of mouse ES cells deficient for a specific transcription factor.
In Dr. Berg’s lab, Bryce has shifted his focus to three projects that focus on evaluation of next-generation sequencing within clinical settings:
