Speaker Bio: Dr. Joshua Akey is an associate professor of Genome Science at University of Washington School of Medicine. His lab is interested in applying experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to better understand the biology and evolution of genomes and identify regions of the genome that have been affected by natural selection in order to map genes that contribute to the susceptibility of complex diseases and mediate inter-individual variation in quantitative traits.
