The genome diversity revolution: olfaction as a model

28 Sep 2009 - 16:30
Lugar: 
Auditorio Dr. Guillermo Soberón del CCG
Expositor: 
Doron Lancet
Institución: 
Department of Molecular Genetics. Weizmann Institute of Science. Rehovot, Israel.

Ph.D. Doron Lancet studied chemistry and immunology in Israel and conducted postdoctoral work at Harvard and Yale. He discovered the molecular basis of smell transduction. Part of his current work is dedicated to the evolution of the olfactory receptor super-family and the biochemical basis of smell sensing. He is the head of the Crown Human Genome Center and the Director of Israel’s National Knowledge Center for Genomics. He also developed GeneCards, a widely used web-based gene compendium of human genes. In the area of the Origin of Life, his group developed a computational model for simulating "the lipid world."

Ph.D. Doron Lancet has already interacted with our research community by collaborating with Claudia Gonzaga-Jauregui, a graduate student from LCG, in his laboratory.
