2019 Workshop on Genomics, Český Krumlov Instructors


Joan Ferrer Obiol
University of Barcelona, Spain

 

 

 

 

Joan’s interests are in using phylogenomics, comparative genomics and quantitative genetics to learn more about the genetic basis of a complex behavioural trait, the migratory behaviour in birds. He is in his last year of his PhD work and is currently working with B10K family level data to detect convergent evolution linked with migratory behaviour.

Andrew Gustin
University of Washington, USA

 

 

 

 

Andrew is PhD student at the University of Washington in Seattle. His studies focus on the female reproductive tract microbiome and its impact on acquisition of sexually transmitted viruses.

Mahwash Jamy
Uppsala University, Sweden

 

 

 

 

Mahwash is a PhD student with Dr. Fabien Burki at Uppsala University. She is interested in using phylogenetic approaches to understand eukaryotic diversity and evolution.  Specifically, her project involves using PacBio for environmental sequencing and taxonomic annotation of microbial eukaryotes based on the entire ribosomal operon.  

Karin Steffen
Uppsala University, Sweden

 

 

 

 

Karin is a PhD student in Sweden working on deep sea sponges. She’s interested in computational methods for data analyses integrating metabolomics and molecular biology data.

Alyssa Woronik
New York University, USA

Alyssa is interested in the genomic mechanisms underlying adaptive phenotypes. She recently completed her Ph.D. with Dr. Chris Wheat at Stockholm University where she investigated the genetic basis and evolution of an alternative life history strategy in butterflies. She is now a post-doc in the lab of Dr. David Fitch at New York University where she is investigating the gene regulatory network underlying sexually dimorphic morphogenesis in Nematodes.
