Curriculum Vitae

Degrees and Training

  • B.A., French; 1990, University of Minnesota
  • M.S., Plant Pathology; 1994, University of Minnesota
  • Ph.D., Microbiology; 2000, University of Minnesota


As a curator for the ASAP-ERIC collection of enterobacterial genomes, my primary responsibilites include literature-based annotation of features within the database, assessment of orthology and other relationships between features, and investigation of endpoints to achieve consistency between genomes. In addition, I am developing prototypes of an assortment of web-based tools to assist in the curatorial process. These tools can be used in conjunction with the database to sort uploads, view information on multiple features simultaneously, and facilitate the determination and correction of feature endpoints.
