I use computers to learn how plant genomes tick.
🔭I’m currently working on pangenomics, genomic prediction, models of gene birth and death in Brassicaceae, and the applications of machine learning in genomics. My study species are most crops, so Brassicaceae and Triticaceae. 👯I’m looking to collaborate on anything computational that you might need help with, as long as there's an interesting biological story attached! Machine learning, large scale (pan)genomics, genome-wide association studies, haplotype calling, genome assembly, annotation, I've done a bit 📫How to reach me: twitter.com/philippbayer is probably fastest. if not, my uni email which is philippDOTbayerATuwaDOTeduDOTau 😄Pronouns: he/him ⚡Fun fact: most crops we rely on (bread wheat, canola, coffee, cotton, strawberry, etc.) are allopolyploids, that means that their cells contain a bunch of genomes from two or more ancestral species (canola: 2 genomes, bread wheat: 3 genomes). We humans have only one genome, boring
