Payal Sipahimalani
Research Assistant

office phone: 604-827-4216

Research interests:
  • Functional genomics
  • High-throughput techniques

    I joined the Hallam lab in the spring of 2010. I have been fortunate in the past to be involved in a wide variety of research projects ranging from SNP discovery in non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients to assaying yeast mutants for synthetic growth defects. I currently work on the development of high-throughput screening strategies for metagenomic libraries with Marcus Taupp.
