IGM Seminar: Michael Schatz, PhD
Michael Schatz, Ph.D. Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor of Computer Science and Biology The Johns Hopkins University, Whiting School of Engineering http://schatz-lab.org/ The Schatz lab focuses on the development of scalable algorithms and systems to analyze biological sequence data, concentrating on the alignment, assembly, and analysis of high-throughput DNA sequencing reads. This work is critical to unlocking the potential of large-scale sequencing as a tool for genetics research. Addressing the magnitude of the challenge, his work includes capitalizing on the latest advances in distributed and parallel computing to advance the state of the art in bioinformatics and genomics.

IGM Seminar: Gail Jarvik, MD PhD
Gail Jarvik, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Medicine and Head, Division of Medical Genetics University of Washington http://www.gs.washington.edu/faculty/jarvik.htm Dr. Jarvik is interested in the genetic basis of complexly inherited genetic disease and has a long-standing interest in biomedical ethics. In addition to many collaborations, including GWAS studies of multiple phenotypes and exomic analyses of Mendelian disorders, Dr. Jarvik's ongoing research focuses on four major areas: Genome-wide association study (GWAS) of phenotypes from clinical electronic medical records in the eMERGE consortium, Genetic predictors of carotid artery disease, Exomic analysis of lipid disorders in large families, and Genomic medicine implementation is a new area of focus.
Room: Mountcastle
Time: 2 p.m.
