Dissertation Defense: Enabling comparative genomics at the scale of hundreds of species

August 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm PDT
E2 Room 599

Dissertation Defense Joel Armstrong, Graduate Student Researcher, BiomolecularEngineerings AbstractComparing related (homologous) subsequences between genomes from different species gives insight into the function and evolution of the genome. This information is captured in “genome alignments,'' which are essential for many comparative genomics analyses. However, most existing methods to create a genome alignment suffer from reference-bias (where only one genome is fully aligned to all others), or ignore duplication events. Though the Cactus genome aligner avoided these restrictions, it could not align…

Cell type-specific patterns of activity in an in vitro model of a reticulospinal circuit

August 5 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm PDT

Postdoc candidate talk Adele Bubnys, Ph.D; Biomedical sciencesThe Rockefeller University, New York, NY AbstractAs the capacity to isolate distinct neuronal cell types has advanced over the past several decades, new two- and three-dimensional in vitro models of the interactions between differentbrain regions have expanded our understanding of human neurobiology and origins of disease.These cultures develop distinctive patterns of activity, but the extent that these patterns aredetermined by the molecular identity of individual cell types versus the specific pattern of network…

Thomas Sasani, Graduate StudentDepartment of Human Genetics, Quinlan Lab, University of Utah Thursday, September 26, 2019 Engineering Building 2 - 59911:30 a.m - 12:30 p.m. Biography I am a Ph.D candidate in Aaron Quinlan’s group at the University of Utah, and received my B.A. in Biochemistry from Lawrence University (Appleton, WI) in 2015. My thesis work is broadly focused on investigating genome evolution and structural variation using next-generation sequencing data. Early in my graduate work, I used the Oxford Nanopore platform…

NCCB Symposium

October 12

The fourth annual Northern California Computational Biology (NCCB) Student Symposium will be held on Saturday October 12, 2019 at UC Davis. This is a one-day student symposium organized by the NCCB Planning Committee made up of students from UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UCSF, UC Merced, UC Davis, and Stanford.  The symposium offers an excellent opportunity to connect with the computational biology student community and to learn about current research projects involving the many facets of computational biology.  Among many…
