PAGXXIX KarlssonAssociate Professor, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, USA

Time:  Wednesday, January 12, 8:00 AM (PST / GMT -8 )

Talk Title:  "The Future of Comparative Genomics: Finding Meaning in Sequence in a Million Genome Age"

Bio:

Elinor Karlsson, PhD, is associate professor in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and director of Vertebrate Genomics at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Her research combines new technology, community science and the power of evolution to investigate diseases and discover the origins of exceptional mammalian traits. Dr. Karlsson’s research includes Zoonomia (zoonomiaproject.org), an international effort to compare the genomes of over 240 mammals, from the African Yellow-spotted Rock Hyrax to the Woodland Dormouse, to identify critically important segments of DNA. In collaboration with Zoo New England, she is developing tools that uses genomics to tackle heritable diseases, like heart disease, common in some zoo. Dr. Karlsson has a special interest in dog genetics, and her international Darwin’s Ark project (DarwinsArk.org) invites all dog owners to enroll their dogs in an open data research project exploring the genetic basis of dog behavior, as well as diseases such as compulsive disorders, food allergies and cancer.

Elinor received her B.A. in biochemistry/cell biology and her B.F.A. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) from Rice University, and earned her Ph.D. in bioinformatics from Boston University. She was a postdoctoral fellow with Pardis Sabeti at Harvard University before starting her research group at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2014.
