Extra NGI seminar: Sequencing and Analysis of Neurological Disorders and cancer at New York Genome Center

Dr Michael Zody is a computational biologist and a pioneer of human genomics. He started his career already during the pilot-sequencing phase of the Human Genome Project. He led informatics efforts associated with production scaling of human genome sequencing at that time working at the Whitehead Institute in Boston (which is currently part of the Broad Institute). His group built the first fully-automated barcoding and database tracking system for managing high-throughput sequencing workflows.

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Abderrahman Khila, Development, selection and species diversification

Abderrahman Khila obtained a joint PhD between Fez University (Morocco) and Toulouse University (France). He then did his postdoctoral studies in Canada, first at the University of Western Ontario, then between McGill University and the University of Toronto. Currently his is group leader and Director of Research at CNRS, based at the Institute of Functional Genomics in Lyon, France. He will discuss how various processes, ranging from the effect of locomotion of fluid substrates to sexual selection, can drive species diversification. He will talk about: “Development, selection, and species diversification”

Minisymposium: Autotrophy in Extreme Environments

Autotrophy in Extreme Environments.This autumn´s biodiversity symposium invites participants working on the diversity, distribution and activity of autotrophic organisms in extreme environments. Autotrophic organisms use carbon dioxide as their carbon source, but besides the dominant light driven autotrophy (e.x. oxygenic photosynthesis), we are particularly interested for presentations on organisms performing chemoautotrophy. The interpretation of ”extreme” […]
