Bioinformatics lecture on computer modeling of genetics, evolution and disease

Oct 28, 2013 at 2:00 PM
Academic & Research Center 106

Computational biologist Russell Schwartz, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss current developments in computational modeling and algorithms for understanding evolutionary changes in human populations in a lecture on Mon., Oct. 28, at 2 p.m. in the Academic & Research Center 106.

Schwartz’s research involves phylogenetic methods on a genomic scale to reconstruct historical population groups and possible evolutionary events in their emergence. Part of the Bioinformatics Distinguished Lecture Series, Schwartz’s presentation will also extend the topic to how the research can be applied to machine learning methods and how these computational models might be used to identify meaningful correlations between genetic variants and disease.
