Dr. Irtisha Singh headshot

Educational Background

  • Ph.D., Computational Biology and Medicine, Cornell University, Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 2011-17

Research Interests

  • Research areas: Computational biology, transcriptional and co-transcriptional regulation, and epigenetics

    Dr. Irtisha Singh is trained in an interdisciplinary field bringing together the knowledge of computational algorithms, statistical methods and molecular biology, for hypothesis driven analysis of the high throughput datasets. Her research experience spans diverse fields, which include genomics, epigenetics and bioengineering. Her work at Texas A&M is in an integrative computational and experimental laboratory The primary focus of her group is to utilize diverse, high-throughput functional assays and perturbations to uncover mechanisms of transcriptional and co-transcriptional regulation in normal and diseased states. They combine the strengths of computational methods and molecular assays to dissect the functional regulatory programs in mammalian cells. They have established multidisciplinary collaborations with researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, and Texas Children’s Hospital.
