My name is Isaac Shaker. I graduated from UC Davis in 2013 and married my high school sweetheart soon afterward. I live with her and our pets in our home in Davis, CA.
My Bachelor’s was in Molecular Biology and I am pursuing a Master’s in the same field. Specifically, I study the effects of introns on gene expression in C. elegans. There’s a wikipedia article about intron mediated enhancement of gene expression and I’ve written some blog posts about it as well.
My wife is a fifth grade school teacher at an elementary school in Davis.
I like playing video games. I also enjoy reading Roman and Greek classics, learning new things, and playing Dungeons and Dragons.
My current recreational project is writing information about my ongoing D&D campaign set in the magical land of Cimmeria.
