Dr. Alexandra Livernois will present the CGIL Seminar on Friday, October 6th. The seminar will begin at 1:30 pm in room 141 of the Animal Science & Nutrition building. Dr. Livernois is a post-doctoral researcher with CGIL. The title of her presentation is: "Investigating genome regulation through comparative genomics and epigenomics ".
Ali grew up in Guelph, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics. She then moved to Australia, where she got her Ph.D. from the Australian National University in 2013 studying sex chromosome evolution and dosage compensation in the platypus and chicken. Following her Ph.D., she continued her work in strange animals as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Canberra, Australia, focusing on epigenetic regulation of sex chromosomes and the immune system in the central bearded dragon lizard (2016). Upon realizing the importance (and fun) of a working knowledge in bioinformatics, Ali completed a coursework master’s degree in bioinformatics at the University of Guelph (2017).
Ali joined Dr. Angela Cánovas’ lab as a postdoctoral researcher in September 2017 to work on a project aiming to identify livestock that are more resilient to climate change. Specifically, Ali will be applying her background in epigenomics and bioinformatics to identify functionally associated variation in DNA methylation patterns in beef and dairy cattle.
As usual, we will be making this CGIL Seminar available as a webinar via Fuze. Please let me know if you require further instruction on how to connect to Fuze.
I look forward to seeing everyone at this week's CGIL Seminar!
