Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Apr 16, 2018
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Getiria Onsongo, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, will present, ‚ÄúComputational Techniques in Genetic Testing & Food Security."  The completion of the human genome project and recent advancements in sequencing technology made routine genetic testing possible.  To be clinically feasible, the cost of performing these tests must be sufficiently low to make economic sense.  I will discuss how I used computational techniques to reduce the cost of genetic tests.  Another arena where computational technique is helpful is in food security, defined by reliable access to affordable nutritious food, through enabling data driven plant breeding.
