Richard Durbin

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Monday September 24, 2012 15:00 - 15:30 @ Rhodes 6   Human genetic variation: from population sequencing to cellular function Abstract: The dramatic decrease in DNA sequencing costs in the last few years has allowed direct full genome sequence studies of genetic diversity by sequencing multiple individuals.  As well supporting evolutionary and population genetic studies, this also allows phenotype association studies to be...

Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology
Monday September 24, 2012 16:30 - 17:00 @ Rhodes 6   Natural variation in Arabidopsis: insights from the 1,001 Genomes Project Abstract: The common weed Arabidopsis thaliana is highly selfing and naturally exists as locally adapted inbred lines that can readily be grown in replicate under controlled conditions.  This makes it an excellent model for studying the genetics of natural variation, and, indeed, shared inbred lines...

Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Monday September 24, 2012 15:45 - 16:15 @ Rhodes 6    When ancestry runs deep: trans-species polymorphisms in apes Abstract: Balancing selection refers to the maintenance of more than one allele in the population for an unusually long time. In cases where balancing selection pressures have existed for millions of years, different species can share the same polymorphism identical by descent, resulting in a trans-species... Read More →

Maria Warnefors

University of Lausanne
Monday September 24, 2012 16:15 - 16:30 @ Rhodes 6    Correlated patterns of gene expression divergence and protein evolution in mammals Abstract: Divergence of protein sequences and gene expression patterns are two fundamental mechanisms that generate organismal diversity. Here we use genome and transcriptome data from eight mammalian species and one bird outgroup to study the evolutionary relationships between these two... Read More →

David Wood

University of Queensland
Monday September 24, 2012 15:30 - 15:45 @ Rhodes 6    Are Tissue-Restricted Genes More Likely To Show Imbalanced Allelic Expression? Abstract: Allelic Specific Expression (ASE) is a process where RNA transcribed from parental alleles differs in abundance or form. ASE can involve near-complete suppression of expression, as in X-inactivation and imprinting, or imbalanced expression, through polymorphisms modulating... Read More →
