Speaker: Dr. Ben Lehner
- CRG (Centre for Genomic Regulation), Systems Biology Unit, Barcelona
ICREA research professor and group leader at the EMBL-CRG Research Unit in Systems Biology at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Barcelona, Ben Lehner’s interests lie in studying the evolution of genetic systems. Research interests include identifying, understanding and predicting the link between genetic variations and phenotypic variations, both at the scale of populations and individuals.
Talk: The biology of individuals
To what extent is it possible to predict the phenotypic differences among individuals from their completely sequenced genomes? We use model organisms (yeast, worms) to understand when you can, and why you cannot, predict the biology of an individual from their genome sequence.
