Ethan, Isak Aarrestad (Kim Lab/Olson Lab), and Hongru Hu (Quon Lab) pitched their project idea, submitted a grant proposal, and won funding to seed an interdisciplinary and collaborative project. We are excited to see how this project develops and spurs collaboration across labs!
Ethan Fenton, 2nd year Neuroscience PhD student in the Nord lab, traveled to UCSF to learn some genomics techniques from Dr. Susan Lindtner from the lab of Dr. John Rubenstein. A huge thank you to Susan, knowledge exchange across universities and labs is an excellent way to lift everyone up and an important part of learning the field!
With a wide range of topics such as human diseases, anthropology, and genetic engineering, and development employing various methods of investigation such as molecular biology, genome sequencing, artificial intelligence based analysis methods, the Human Genetics Focus Group brings together diverse teams. Sharing your work here is a great way to get expert insight from multiple perspectives and spur creativity!
