Simons Foundation Lectures are free public colloquia related to basic science and mathematics. These high-level talks are intended for professors, students, postdocs and business professionals, but interested people from the metropolitan area are welcome as well.
This Biotech Symposium will focus on computational methods for detecting structural variants, which include large chromosomal insertions, deletions, inversions and translocations. Structural variants may cause both germline and somatic genetic diseases — such as inherited disorders and cancer — and contribute to human diversity and disease susceptibility.
Attendees will include New York City area faculty, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, students and technical staff. Guests are invited to meet the speakers and mingle during the mid-afternoon break.
“Discovery & Genotyping Human Genome Structural Variation”
“Modeling Evolution of the Structural Genome in Cancer Cell Populations”
“Update on Mt. Sinai Institute of Genomics & Multiscale Biology”
