Katie Pollard, PhD

Director, Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology

Genomics studies can generate hundreds of gigabytes of data, making extracting meaningful findings a daunting task. In this seminar, Katie Pollard, director of the Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology, will describe how her lab is applying machine learning to decode genomes in 3D.

Katie Pollard’s group develops statistical and computational methods to study genome evolution, organization, and regulation. Their analyses of massive sets of genomic and epigenomic data include investigating human genetic variation, understanding what makes humans unique, and characterizing the genomic diversity of the human microbiome.
