Marisol Alvarez-Martinez

Visiting Worker


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

Marisol is currently working on ameliorating the mapping of ChIP-seq reads to the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) locus. This region is challenging to conventional approaches of read mapping, and therefore peak calling, due to its content of highly polymorphic genes. Marisol is mainly interested in the effect of genetic polymorphisms on the "regulome" of immune related genes.
