Bioinformatics Lecture Delivered at NCSU

One of our Bioinformatics Scientists, Logan J. Everett, was invited to give a guest lecture for the Human and Biomedical Genetics (GN441/541) course at NC State University. Logan holds a Ph.D. in Genomics and Computational Biology, and trained as a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Trudy Mackay to study bioinformatic approaches to fundamental problems in quantitative genetics.  Logan’s guest lecture for the GN441/541 course focused on Polygenic Disease and Association Mapping, and introduced students to fundamental concepts such as genome-wide association studies (GWAS), statistical methods for multiple testing correction, next-generation sequencing (NGS), and gene by environment interactions.  Logan also applies many of these concepts in his work at Sciome: he has worked on many projects involving the analysis of NGS data, and has collaborated with scientists at the National Toxicology Program to study genetic variation in sensitivity to chemical exposures.
