Thesis defense

I defended last Thursday. People claim I gave a good talk. My sister (who is pretty nonscientific) claims she understood large segments of it!

Chris recorded the talk with audio and video. It was hard to read the slides on the original video, so he’s created a video using the audio only and pics of the slides themselves.

I should watch it myself, but dislike the sound of my own voice… I think I sound like a chipmunk. Honestly, in my head my voice is much deeper than that.

Anyway, if you take the time to watch, I hope you enjoy it! The subjects are epigenetics, DNA methylation, and a little on clinical analysis of whole genomes (related to the Personal Genome Project).
