Distinguished HMG Alumni-Dr. Joshua Akey "Adventures in Recent Human Evolution Told by Massively Large Catalogs of Human Genetic Variation"
The University of Texas at Houston's Graduate School of Biomedical Science Human and Molecular Genetics program is proud to host as one of their keynote speakers, Dr. Joshua Akey, PhD from University of Washington School of Medicine, as part of the 17th annual Human and Molecular Genetics Symposium. We ask that you please join us for this exciting event!
Date: 4/11/14, 10:15am to 11:15am
Time: 4/11/14, 10:15am to 11:15am
Location: Griffin Conference and Education Center, South Campus Research Building 2, Floor 1, Conference Rooms 1-6
Directions: Seminar is being held in South Campus Research Building 2 conference rooms 1-2 (2SCR1.4015 & 2SCR1.4019). This location is easily accessed by the Blue and Black shuttle to the SCRB1/2 stop.
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.
