Duplicate of Research in Genetics Workshop

Exploring data as an undergraduate biology student to formalize a study and become familiar with research techniques. I am hoping to answer a question based on infectious diseases and how they lead to other diseases, amoralities.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

Exploring data as an undergraduate biology student to formalize a study and become familiar with research techniques. I am hoping to answer a question based on infectious diseases and how they lead to other diseases, amoralities.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Human immunodeficiency virus infectious disease)
  • Population Health
  • Educational
  • Ancestry

Scientific Approaches

I plan to use R program, infectious disease data, healthcare data, to discover if there are any links to motor neuron diseases, genetic mutations, etc.

Anticipated Findings

I anticipate to find more details between HIV and associated motor neuron disease. Also hoping to find associations with the CCR5- delta 32 mutation.

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Access to Care

Scientific Questions Being Studied

This workspace will be used to prepare instructor content and analysis protocols for a course-based research laboratory class supported by the Towson University Research Enhancement Program. The purpose of this course is for students to have the experience of developing a research question in human health and then they will design and implement an analysis of publicly available data to answer their research question. The student research projects will focus on medical health and public health topics. As well as learning skills important in medical and epidemiological research, students will be able ask questions that could lead to better understanding of and treatment for diseases in traditionally under-served populations.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

Data analysis will be run in an NIH-approved "Researcher Workbench" platform using Jupyter Notebook and R. The questions students will ask will be dependent on what data All of Us has available to researchers at the time of the course. These data will include health data, physical measurement data, biospecimen-related data, and genomic data.

Anticipated Findings

As well as learning skills important in medical and epidemiological research, students will be able ask questions that could lead to better understanding of and treatment for diseases in traditionally under-served populations. We also hope this course will encourage undergraduate students to consider careers in medical research.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
