Research Proposal

My original Laidlaw research proposal to determine the genetic causes of Parkinson's Disease using computational biology.

Hello, everyone! This is a post to showcase my original Laidlaw program research proposal, "The Genetics Behind Parkinson's Disease".

My proposal applies a refined majority-vote algorithm for the prediction of protein functions to protein-protein interaction (a.k.a. PPI) networks in hopes of identifying further genes that may be responsible for the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.

Hi, everyone! My name is Kyla Levin (legally: Kateri Lalicker), and I'm a 2021 Cohort Scholar from Tufts University! I major in chemical engineering and computer science, my primary interests being in data sciences, biochemistry, materials science, and cybersecurity. I don't usually have a lot of free time, but when I do, I love curling up with a good book!
