Welcome to Olga Kamneva's website!

Currently I am a Bioinformatics Staff Scientist at Genotyping Division (Affymetrix) of Thermo Fisher Scientific.

I received my Diploma degree in Biology, major in Bioinformatics, from the Novosibirsk State University, Russia, in 2007. I then joined Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences PhD Program at the University of Wyoming. I did my graduate work with Naomi Ward but several of my projects were co-supervised by David Liberles. I received my Doctoral degree in Molecular Biology with minor in Statistics in 2013. I also completed my postdoctoral studies in Noah Rosenberg's Lab, Department of Biology, Stanford University.

I am a computational biologist by training. I am proficient in designing algorithms for biological data analysis including large scale genotyping, next generation sequencing, phylogenetics, genomics, metagenomics and statistical modeling.

In my personal research I am interested to uncover general principles and molecular mechanisms governing genome evolution in the interplay with ecology of biological species and organization of biological communities. I develop methods for phylogenetic analysis which account for horizontal processes such as hybridization and horizontal gene transfer. Recently I also became interested in applied genomics, in particular, in predicting phenotypic effects of genetic variation.
