Pablo Fonseca, a CGIL visiting Ph.D. student, will present the CGIL Seminar on Friday, March 2nd. The seminar will begin at 1:15 pm in room 141 of the Animal Science & Nutrition building. The title of Pablo's presentation is: "Combining bovine multi-breed and multi-omics information to identify key-regulatory genes using systems biology ".
Pablo Fonseca is a visiting Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Angela Cánovas at the University of Guelph. He obtained his B.Sc. in Biological Science from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil). Pablo obtained his M.Sc. in Genetics, with an emphasis in Genomics and Bioinformatics, from the University of Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. During his M.Sc. he developed studies in the area of population genetics, using genetic diversity estimates for the Guzerá breed, such as inbreeding coefficient obtained from runs of homozygosity and effective population size. Currently, Pablo is in the last year of his Ph.D., in Genetics (emphasis also in Genomics and Bioinformatics) at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. The aim of his thesis is to identify genomic regions associated with testicular and sperm traits in the Dairy-Gyr breed. During his internship at the University of Guelph, Pablo has worked with functional analyses of regions with transmission ratio distortion, identification of genes/regions associated with pleiotropic effects in beef cattle, and RNA-seq analysis.
