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


Sequencing and Analysis of Neurological Disorders and cancer at New York Genome Center

Speaker: Dr Michael Zody, 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. Currently Dr Zody serves as the Senior Director of Computational Biology at the New York Genome Center.

Date and time: Oct 18, 14:00 – 15:00

Venue: Navet, SciLifeLab (E10:1307-1309), BMC, Uppsala

Organizer: Ann-Christine Syvänen (ann-christine.syvanen@medsci.uu.se), professor in molecular medicine, SciLifeLab faculty, and director of the SNP&SEQ facility, NGI Uppsala, SciLifeLab.
