ABI Research Student
Tatevik Jalatyan is a research student at the Armenian Bioinformatics Institute and a member of the Nersisyan research lab. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Data Science with a specialization in bioinformatics from the American University of Armenia. In the summer of 2021, she joined ABI and participated in a bioinformatics research project through ABI’s Mentor and Mentee program, collaborating with Dr. Erik Aznauryan, a postdoctoral fellow at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University. The project focused on the discovery of new viral vectors for gene delivery, which later became the subject of her Bachelor’s thesis. For her work on the project, Tatevik received a six-month research scholarship from the ARPA Institute. Tatevik is currently contributing to a research project that aims to develop a novel methodology for analyzing single-cell RNA-sequencing datasets.
Tatevik volunteered at the OMICSS-2022 summer school in genome bioinformatics, where she was mentoring students, as well as supervised their final research project
