Monday, November 19, 2018 | 4:10 – 5:10pmWalter A. Buehler Alumni Center

UPDATED 11/16/18: The Storer Seminar scheduled for Monday, November 19, has been postponed due to the continued uncertainty of the regional air quality.

We are currently working with Dr. Leif Andersson to find another date to bring him to campus.

Leif Andersson

The Storer Life Sciences Lectureship presents Leif Andersson, Professor, Uppsala Universitet, Sweden: "Domestic animals – models for the evolution of phenotypic diversity"

Dr. Leif Andersson is a specialist in genetics and genome biology. He has made groundbreaking studies on the relationship between genetic and phenotypic variation. He has been working on comparative genomics using domestic animals as study objects the last 30 years. The work has focused on domestic animals as models for phenotypic evolution and resulted in a steady stream of interesting findings on genotype-phenotype relationships such as mutations affecting pigmentation, gaits in horses, comb morphology in chickens and muscle growth in pigs. He has also studied the genetic basis for domestication of rabbits, chicken and pigs. More recently the research program has been expanded to include natural populations such as the Darwin’s finches, the ruff and Atlantic herring because of the exciting opportunities opened up by the development of new sequencing technologies. Leif Andersson is professor in Functional Genomics at Uppsala University and in Animal Genomics at Texas A&M University, and guest professor at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. He is member of The Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, The Swedish Royal Academy of Agriculture and Forestry, Foreign Associate of the National Academy (USA) and International Member of the American Philosophical Society. He was awarded the Wolf prize in Agriculture 2014.
