Andrew Gao's research efforts
Bovine Leukemia Virus
As an intern at the UCSD Supercomputer Center, I researched bovine leukemia virus and how it may lead to breast cancer in humans.
Check out my paper on how a common cow disease might lead to breast cancer in humans!
Bovine leukemia virus relation to human breast cancer: Meta-analysis
Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is a virus that infects cattle around the world and is very similar to the human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV), which causes adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL). Recently, presence of BLV DNA and protein was demonstrated in ...
Lung Cancer Detection
I conducted experiments on DNA methylation signatures of plasma samples from lung cancer patients. The application would be for a non-invasive diagnostic test.
Blood-based Diagnostic Biomarkers for Parkinson's
I identified several promising biomarkers for detecting Parkinson's disease from blood samples. I received a total of $28,000 in scholarships for my work.
Bioinformatics Visualization Tool
As a paid intern at the Scripps Institute of La Jolla, I developed a tool in Python to visualize interactions between biological entities like diseases and genes.
