Nov. 15 genomics lecture focuses on gene expression
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Exploring Global Patterns of Gene Expression"
is the title of a genomics lecture to be given from 10-11 a.m. Thursday, Nov.
15 in Stanley Auditorium, Room 1505 of the Seamans Center for the Engineering
Arts and Sciences.
The talk will be presented by Dr. John Quackenbush, Ph.D., associate investigator
at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville, Md. Quackenbush's
visit to the University of Iowa is sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Genome
Analysis Program and the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Seminar
Quackenbush is a computational biologist whose work at TIGR has contributed
to the extensive annotation of the genomes of several species. In particular,
his work in the creation of gene indices has made possible the construction
of sets of probes for sampling gene expression levels in a wide range of medical
research settings. He has recently led worldwide efforts to standardize and
normalize data collected from expression experiments.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Individuals with disabilities
are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are
a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate
in this program, please contact the Coordinated Laboratory for Computational
Genomics in advance at 384-0804.
