Colloquium: Sethuraman on the genomics of “ghosts”

Dr. Arun Sethuraman

This week the Biology Colloquium seminar series features Arun Sethuraman, an Assistant Professor of Biology at CSU San Marcos. Dr. Sethuraman is a computational biologist specializing in methods to reconstruct the histories of populations using patterns in genome-wide DNA sequence data. His seminar will focus on work he has done to understand the relationships between modern humans and extinct populations of human relatives like the Neanderthals — so-called "ghost" populations.

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode Biology490. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
