Katie Pollard, PhD
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 tackle questions in genomics.
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.
Gladstone Science Talks allow investigators to share the latest research from their laboratories. These talks are open to the broader Gladstone community.
