About the Speaker

Prof Megan Dennis

PI at UC Davis

By employing DNA sequencing methods with classic molecular and cellular biology techniques, we explore questions pertaining to disease genetics, human genomics & evolution, and gene expression & function. Our main focus is to identify previously unexplored genes and variants contributing to human-specific neurological traits and diseases with a particular interest in novel genes created from recent duplications in the human lineage. Projects in the lab range from developing novel sequencing strategies to assay difficult genomic regions to using zebrafish to study the function of genes and mutations identified in patients with autism.
