Computational Biology Distinguished Seminar Series: Population Scale Detection of Common and Rare Genomic Rearrangements and Transcriptomic Aberrations

Description:
Prof. Cenk Sahinalp (Simon Fraser University)will go through some of the algorithm development efforts at the Lab for Computational Biology in SFU for simultaneously analyzing large collections of MP sequenced genomes and transcriptomes, and in particular for identifying and differentiating common and rare, expressed and unexpressed large scale variants with high accuracy. He will talk about a new model in which structural variants are detected among multiple genomes and transcriptomes simultaneously. One of their methods, Comrad, for example, enables integrated analysis of transcriptome (i.e. RNA) and genome (i.e. DNA) sequence data for discovering expressed rearrangements in multiple, possibly related, individuals. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 18, 2012
