23rd Annual Donald C. Shreffler Memorial Lecture
David Baker, PhD
Professor of Biochemistry & Head, Institute for Protein Design
Department of Biochemistry
University of Washington

Talk title: "Protein design using deep learning" Seminar abstract: Proteins mediate the critical processes of life and beautifully solve the challenges faced during the evolution of modern organisms. Our goal is to design a new generation of proteins that address current-day problems not faced during evolution. In contrast to traditional protein engineering efforts, which have focused on modifying naturally occurring proteins, we design new proteins from scratch to optimally solve the problem at hand.  We now use two approaches.  First,…

Ami Bhatt, MD, PhD
Associate Professor
Departments of Medicine (Hematology) and Genetics
Stanford University

presents, "From precise microbial genomics to precision medicine" Talk abstract:  The Bhatt lab seeks to illuminate the interplay between the microbial environment and host/clinical factors in human diseases. In this talk, Dr. Bhatt will share exciting new developments on the application of novel molecular and computational tools to study strain level dynamics of the microbiome, understand how microbial genomes change over time and predict the functional output of microbiomes. She will also speak about recent efforts to understand how microbes “talk” to one another…
