What’s New in the First Truly Complete Sequence of a Human Genome? Special Talk,

Adam Phillippy, PhD, Senior Investigator at National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH, led the team that finished the last remaining regions of the human genome. For this work, he was named by TIME magazine as one of 2022’s most influential people. Dr. Phillippy will provide an overview of what we have learned from new regions of the genome and highlight ongoing studies that are generating many more reference genomes from a diverse collection of humans and non-human primates. These new references are unlocking the last uncovered regions of the genome to functional and evolutionary studies for the first time.

Co-sponsored by the GCC, Ken Kennedy Institute, and Rice Computer Science.

Talk: 4:00 pm; Reception: 5:00.
