Cofactor Genomics


This week, we have a guest speaker: Ian Schillebeeckx. He is a recent SLU Math/CS graduate and computational scientist who will be talking to us about Cofactor Genomics: a study in de novo assembly of Spider Dragline Silk Genes.

He will talk about a project he is actively working on that involves sequencing spider silk genes. He ran some in silico simulations and did research to formulate an application of next-generation sequencing techniques for discovery experiments. This is sure to be a fascinating talk!

You are welcome to join us in the Ritter Hall Lobby from 4-5 on Wednesday! Refreshments will be provided.
