Dr. Fabian Theis Institute of Computational Biology, Helmholtz Center Munich:

April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Engineering 2 RM 506

LINEAGE ESTIMATION FROM SINGLE-CELL RNASEQ TIME-SERIES Background: Fabian Theis's group is one of the 2-3 leading teams in single cell analysis. They developed Scanpy https://scanpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/, a fast and comprehensive analysis package. Abstract: Single-cell technologies have gained popularity in developmental and stem cell biology because they allow resolving potential heterogeneities due to asynchronicity of differentiating cells. With technologies slowly becoming mature and cost-efficient, single cell profiles across multiple conditions e.g. time points and replicates are being generated. In this talk I…

A unified method for genome inference using graph-based genome reference structures

May 1 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Biomed 200

Jordan Eizenga, PhD Student, Biomolecular Engineering & Bioinformatics Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - 9:00am Location - Biomedical Sciences, Room 200 Host - Assistant Professor Benedict Paten Abstract:   Much of current computational genomics is built around reference genomes. However, the current paradigm for reference genomes in limited in that it uses a single sequence to represent the genomes of an entire species. Recent research efforts have generalized this concept to graph-based reference structures that can represent additional genetic variation from the…

Advancement to Candidacy: Wolbachia and the Study of Endosymbiont Evolution

May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Physical Sciences Room 305

Paloma Medina, PhD Student, Biomolecular Engineering & Bioinformatics Friday, May 4, 2018 - 2:00pm Location - Physical Sciences, Room 305 Host - Assistant Professor Russell Corbett-Detig Abstract:   Endosymbiosis, the living together of two organisms one inside the other’s body, is critical to the evolution of many species. Well-studied endosymbiotic bacteria such as mitochondria and chloroplasts showcase the important role of inter-species relationships that have lasted billions of years. However, our knowledge of lesser well-known endosymbionts and their contribution to host…

Bioengineering in the Open

May 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Engineering 2, Room 599

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 4:00-6:00pm Engineering 2, Room 599 Bioengineering is an ascendant and elite field. Advocates of “open” bioengineering propose to expand the participants, methods and scope of practices & ideas for intervening in biology. Drawing on the perceived innovative successes of Silicon Valley, these advocates often promote analogies to computer and information technology to both frame and direct biological engineering’s development as a definitive technology of the twenty-first century. “Bioengineering in the Open” will explore the points of…

Science on Tap with WiSE and Jenny Reardon on The Postgenomic Condition

May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave.
Santa Cruz,CA95064United States
+ Google Map

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 7:00pm The Crepe Place: 1134 Soquel Ave., SC, CA SJRC Director and Sociology Professor Jenny Reardon will discuss with us her new book, The Postgenomic Condition: Ethics, Justice & Knowledge After the Genome (University of Chicago Press, 2017). Reardon’s research draws into focus questions about identity, justice and democracy that are often silently embedded in scientific ideas and practices, particularly in modern genomic research. Her training spans molecular biology, the history of biology, science studies, feminist…
