Every living organism on earth -virus, bacteria, yeast, human, etc. - has a genome. Although genomes are diversely endowed and structured from kingdom to kingdom, there are lots of conserved commonalities passed down from the originator life. What I do is I get enjoyment from routinely exploiting these commonalities to explore the behavior and potential of individual organisms, and learn more about how large groups of organisms commune as a PhD student in the Caron Lab at USC.

Olli-gist like the suffix "ologist", one who studies. The site's name is a tribute to my general MO; approaching my other many interests with the same curiosity that pervades my work as a biologist.
I hope you enjoy the site.
