She visited Dr Helen Lockstone, who is head of Functional Data Analysis and involved in the analysis of microarray data and high-throughput sequencing data. The Centre is one of five MRC sequencing hubs in the UK and they generate a lot of RNA-Seq data. The purpose of the project was to apply new methods for detection of alternative/differential splicing in these datasets.
