Cells have been interpreting genomes for billions of years. But how do scientists do it, and what do they do with that information? Alisha Holloway’s talk will focus on interpreting and decoding our genomes to understand congenital heart disease.
Dr. Alisha Holloway is the Director of the Gladstone Institutes’ Bioinformatics Core in San Francisco, CA. She is a leader in the field of bioinformatics, which she uses alongside genomic approaches to study the evolution of heart development. She also serves as the Bioinformatics Leader of the Bench to Bassinet consortium, which develops and evaluates tools for large-scale DNA-sequence analysis.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
