Today at 4 at #UCDavis: Jonathan Pritchard on “Interpreting functional consequences of human genetic variation”

Jonathan Pritchard is will be giving the Ecology and Evolution seminar today on “Interpreting functional consequences of human genetic variation.”4:10-5:30PM; in 176 Everson Hall.

Jonathan’s work addresses basic questions in evolutionary biology and genomics using computational and statistical approaches.

From his website:
“Much of our work focuses on questions relating to genetic variation and evolution. What can we learn from DNA sequence data about population structure, population histories and natural selection? How does genetic variation impact phenotypic traits, both at the organismal and cellular level (including an emphasis on gene regulation)? ”

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
