Upcoming Seminar Series on genomics at University of Oregon


vertuvian_colour_small.jpgFellow Oregonians – this looks like a great series! I’ve seen Bustamante talk before, he does amazing research. So it should be great, if you can stand hanging out with the Ducks, that is…

(And, by the way, evolutionary theory is literally the warp and woof of genomics. If you took genomics and somehow deleted all of the methods and analyses derived from evolutionary theory, the whole field and industry would crumple into a quivering pile of meaningless digital goo. There are areas where ID people are wrong and can at least state arguments of some sort – but then there are vast areas like population genomics where ID people don’t even know enough to realize that there is a vast, hugely successful enterprise that is entirely built upon principles they would disagree with.)

OK, end of rant.

Subject: Upcoming Seminar Series at University of Oregon Date: Wed, 30 Mar 2011 19:10:30 -0700 From: Roo Vandegrift


I’m a graduate student at the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (CEEB) at the University of Oregon. Our graduate student group within CEEB has put together a public seminar series for the spring that you and some of your readers might find interesting. It’s titled The Individual in the Genomics Era. Here’s some information on the dates and topics:

*What genomics means for our past, present, and future * April 5 Dr William Cresko University of Oregon

*The Personal Genome Revolution * May 3 Dr Lee Silver Princeton University Supported by the Oregon Humanities Center Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities

*Reconstructing the great human diasporas from genome variation data* May 23 Dr Carlos Bustamante Stanford University

Further information can be found on the website, including the exact location on the University of Oregon campus the talks will be held, the press release, etc. http://www.uoregon.edu/~grebes/seminar Additionally, I’ve attached a copy of the flier for the series.

I hope some of you in the Pacific Northwest might consider attending! And if not, if you know of anyone who might benefit from this series, please let them know.

Peace, Roo
