Presenter: Dr. Luis Barreiro, principal investigator of the Barreiro lab at the University of Chicago
Dr. Luis Barreiro will present a summary of the paper, “Genetic ancestry effects on the response to viral infection are pervasive but cell type specific”, published in Science. Dr. Barreiro will discuss how he used a combination of sequencing services provided by BGI Genomics to uncover the molecular mechanisms that underpin differences in immune responses.
Presenter: Dr. Joseph Pickrell, CEO of Gencove
Dr. Joseph Pickrell will then drill down into how Gencove and BGI’s combined low-pass whole-genome sequencing (lpWGS) and imputation service, which was used in the study, reduces population biases and enables powerful downstream analysis.
What will you learn in this webinar?
- How a multiomics approach can be used for immunogenomic research
- How low pass whole genome sequencing can be applied for cost-effective and accurate population-level ancestry research
- Overcoming lpWGS analysis challenges with Gencove and BGI’s powerful integrated solution
The talks will take around 25 minutes followed by a live question and answer session. Space is limited so register today to avoid disappointment, it’s free!
