Speaker: Jamie Blundell, PhD, Levy Lab, Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, Stony Brook University, USA.
Dr Blundell's work combines experimental evolution, analyses of “big data” sets obtained from genetic lineage-tracking tools, and theory to understand how quickly clonal populations evolve. The central idea is to develop a quantitative understanding of clonal evolution in order to (i) predict how cellular populations evolve in the lab (ii) make more informed treatment decisions of evolutionary diseases in the clinic.
