Michael Wendl is one of the original Human Genome Project scientists and applies mathematical & statistical theory to important problems in medicine and engineering. He works to rapidly advance the science of cancer genomics, from signal analysis of raw genome sequencing and proteomics data, to inferential analysis and model building, to clinical translation. Dr. Wendl is a proponent of math/science literacy for the general public and active in policy issues related to education, including through the Wendl Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity promoting and funding educational opportunities for disadvantaged children within the St Louis Metro Area.

Q & A
Here are answers to questions I sometimes get. This might save time before you contact me.
collision probability visualization
Sten Kultakangas made this nifty visualization of the collision probability for the special case N = 2 of the general solution from Collision Probability Between Sets of Random Variables (Wendl, 2003). This image is used in the Wikipedia article on the Birthday problem (another application of this class of combinatorial probability problems) and I recently wrote an expository article on another variation applicable to blocking spam communication for Chalkdust magazine.

You may have reached this page by mistake. Mine is not a terribly common name, but there are a number of other folks online with the name "Michael Wendl". I am not any of the people below.
About Contacting Me: I get lots of e-mail, most of which is automatically filtered. If you are a student and I have not responded, please re-send your message from your university email account to by-pass the spam filter. The best way to reach me for anything important is US (postal) mail. I do not accept LinkedIn requests from those I don't know, nor from current students (because of obvious problems of appearance). Apologies for any inconvenience.
