We will have ASHBi Seminar with Dr. Katherine S. Pollard as a lecturer.
Dr. Katherine S. Pollard, Professor of University of California San Francisco and Director of Gladstone Institute of Data Science & Biotechnology, is a leading scientist in the field of comparative genomics. She pioneered the identification of Human Accelerated Regions (HARs), the fastest evolving regions in the human genome, as part of the Chimpanzee Sequencing and Analysis Consortium project. Dr. Pollard also serves as an advisor to the ENCODE project and as a member of psychENCODE and Zoonomia consortium projects. She will talk about emerging technologies and informatics to understand the genetic background of what makes us human.
If you have any interest in the topic, you are welcome to attend this seminar.
