bioinformatics; molecular biology; tissue culture My professional experience is highly varied. I have experience in both bioinformatics and wet lab research. 
My bioinformatics experience includes:
* larger protein alignments and tree generation
* homology modeling
* protein treading
* molecular dynamic simulation and analysis
* Discrete Molecuar Dynamics (DMD) and Amber
* Contact map analysis
* normal mode analysis
* analysis of DNA open reading frames
* unique mass spectra filtering software
* Languages: C, C++, Java, Perl
* Software: Mathematics, R, xmgrace, Mr. Bayes
* OS expertise in Linux

My wet lab work includes extensive studying Filamin, Cystic Fibrosis Conductance Regulator and the Adeno-associated Virus (AAV). To study these I used
* molecular biology
* tissue culture
* virus purification
* transduction assays in airway epithelial cells, hek293, and mice
* Assays I am familiar with include:
immuno-precipitaion, pulldown, western blots, 
southern blots, PCR, QPCR, DNA tissue extraction,
flow cytometry, luciferase, immunohisto chemistry,
use of confocal microscopes.
