Zach Thomson

Senior Bioinformatics Analyst


Zach Thomson is a bioinformatic analyst at the Allen Institute for Immunology. Prior to joining the institute, he spent nearly a decade working in neuroscience focused labs investigating everything from how methylation in the APOE gene influences Alzheimer’s risk to congenital brain defects in children. This work led to generating one of the first single cell datasets on the development of the human fetal cerebellum. Now at the institute, his main focus has been on using single cell assays such as TEA-seq to probe how the healthy immune system changes over our lifespans, as well as assisting in new single cell technology development.
