Group Meeting 11/09/17

Speaker: XUE Zhe Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Sep 11, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: An expanded view of complex traits: from polygenic to omnigenic Abstract: A central goal of genetics is to understand the links between genetic variation and disease. Intuitively, one might expect disease-causing variants to cluster into key pathways that drive disease etiology. But for complex traits, association signals tend...

Group Meeting 04/09/17

Speaker: LOU Haiyi, DENG Lian, NING Zhilin Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Sep 04, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Topic: Introduction to third generation sequencing and SV calling

Group Meeting 31/07/17

Speaker: LOU Haiyi Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jul 31, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: De novo assembly and phasing of a Korean human genome Abstract: Advances in genome assembly and phasing provide an opportunity to investigate the diploid architecture of the human genome and reveal the full range of structural variation across population groups. Here we report the de novo assembly and haplotype phasing of...

Group Meeting 17/07/17

Speaker:LIU Chang Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jul 17, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Topic: Inferring Demographic History Using Two-Locus Statistics

Group Meeting 10/07/17

Speaker: YUAN Kai Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jul 10, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: Deeply divergent archaic mitochondrial genome provides lower time boundary for African gene flow into Neanderthals Abstract: Ancient DNA is revealing new insights into the genetic relationship between Pleistocene hominins and modern humans. Nuclear DNA indicated Neanderthals as a sister group of Denisovans after diverging...

Group Meeting 03/07/17

Speaker: MA Xixian Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jul 03, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: Signatures of Archaic Adaptive Introgression in Present-Day Human Populations Abstract: Comparisons of DNA from archaic and modern humans show that these groups interbred, and in some cases received an evolutionary advantage from doing so. This process—adaptive introgression—may lead to a faster rate of adaptation than...

26/06/17 Group Meeting

Speaker: LIU Jiaojiao Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jun 26, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: Reconstructing genetic history of Siberian and Northeastern European populations Abstract: Siberia and Western Russia are home to over 40 culturally and linguistically diverse indigenous ethnic groups. Yet, genetic variation of peoples from this region is largely uncharacterized. We present whole-genome sequencing data...

19/06/17 Group Meeting

Speaker: WANG Yuchen Time: 13:00 – 14:00, Jun 19, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: Jomon & Japanese Population Structure Model Speaker: ZHANG Chao Time: 14:00 – 15:00, Jun 19, 2017 Venue: Room 315, SIBS Main Building Title: An internal release version of...
