Event Description

Full Description:
Professor David Hume will discuss the next generation sequencing and genome-editing revolutions that herald an era of predictive biology. He will cover some of the recent work of the FANTOM Consortium, progress in the use of transcriptomic data to annotate the genomes of major livestock species, the ways in which coexpression clustering can suggest functions of genes that currently lack annotation, and the applications of genomic technologies to produce sustainable improvements in livestock productivity and the use of large animals as model organisms.
