Genomic Seminar Series

Duke Precision Genomics Collaboratory Genomic Seminar Series

The Genomic Seminar Series is a forum for leading researchers to present their high-level vision for genetics, genomics and omics broadly, with a goal of appealing to scientists, clinicians and trainees across the Duke School of Medicine.

This seminar series will occur quarterly with some events occurring virtually only and others in-person with streaming options.

Jay Shendure, MD, PhD

Professor of Genome Sciences
University of Washington

Reconstruction & Recording of Mammalian Development

Jay Shendure is a professor in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine. His research is focused on developing and applying new technologies in genomics. Shendure's research group at the University of Washington pioneered exome sequencing and its application to Mendelian disorders, a strategy that has been applied to identify hundreds of disease-causing genes. Other notable accomplishments of Shendure's laboratory include the first whole genome sequencing of a human fetus using samples obtained non-invasively from the parents and the sequencing of the HeLa genome in agreement with Henrietta Lacks’ family.
