5:00pm - 6:00pm


Danto Auditorium


Improving quality and decreasing costs of next generation sequencing instruments are enabling advanced genomics techniques to be applied to a diverse range of biological systems.

The power of traditional methods (e.g. RNA-seq, whole genome sequencing) has allowed for a significant amount of research to elucidate immensely complex problems. However, there is still much left to discover and technological boundaries are continuously being pushed in order to accelerate research and enhance our understanding of biological systems. This seminar will discuss current advanced genomic instrumentation and their new applications.

Presenter Olivia Koues, PhD, is the managing director of the Advanced Genomics Core. She joined U-M from Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she worked as the Scientific Research Core Facility Manager of the Genomic Core facility. Prior to that, Dr. Koues held positions at Washington University School of Medicine as a research instructor and postdoctoral research associate. She received her bachelor’s degree in applied biology at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Koues received her PhD. in molecular genetics and her master’s degree in biology from Georgia State University.

Please join us for this free Taubman Technology Talk and pizza reception at 5pm in the Danto Auditorium of the Frankel Cardiovascular Center.
