You’re invited: Next Taubman Tech Talk

July 6, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

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.

The next Taubman Institute Technology talk will discuss current advanced genomic instrumentation and new applications. It will take place online at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7.

Presenter Olivia Koues, Ph.D., 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, Koues held positions at Washington University School of Medicine as a research instructor and postdoctoral research associate.
