I’m a genomics scientist

with the University of Minnesota Genomics Center (UMGC). I manage and perform custom Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) services for researchers at the university and throughout the region. Previously, I worked on the development of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) assays in cell-free DNA and circulating tumor cells (CTCs) at Trovagene and Biocept in San Diego, California. My other research interests include microbiology, advanced genetic tools, and synthetic biology. Here you'll find more information about things I'm working on and a link to my blog on scientific topics and my various interests.

I hold a B.A. in Chemistry from St. Olaf College (Um Yah Yah!) and a M.Sc. in Biology from the University of California, San Diego.

I can be contacted quite easily via e-mail at btauch [at] gmail dot com, or any of the fine social media at the bottom of the page.
