Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Discussion Group: Dr. Douglas Fowler

October 7 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Discussion Group presents a seminar:

Douglas M. Fowler, Ph. D.
Associate Professor
Department of Genome Sciences

Date: Monday, October 7, 2019
Time: 2:30 PM
Location: LSC 3

 

Title: New approaches for addressing the effect of genetic variation at scale

Abstract:How does a protein’s sequence encode its fold and function? How do changes in sequence influence disease risk, prognosis and treatment? How do gene expression patterns combine with protein activity to define cellular processes like growth, migration and communication? The Fowler lab is interested in developing new ways to probe the relationship between genotype and phenotype, enabling us to better answer these questions. In particular, we have applied large-scale mutagenesis to reveal a new mechanism of kinase regulation, to better understand the meaning of variants in human genomes, and to better predict the impact of mutations.

Hosted by: Dr. Phil Hieter
