Marco Antonio Tello Palencia
Marco is a Bioinformatics graduate student at UBC in Dr. Keegan Korthauer's research group. He completed his undergraduate degree in Genomic Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where he completed some wet-lab projects before deciding he wanted to focus on the analysis of biological data. His main research interest is to understand factors that influence how genes interact with other genes and with the environment. His current research project applies machine learning to unravel associations between differentially methylated regions and changes in gene expression.
