"Effort of using whole genome sequencing to identify whole spectrum of de novo and rare inherited mutation in autism families"


Monday, November 25, 2013, 12:00pm to 1:30pm


Harvard Medical School, New Research Building, Room 350, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA

Special seminar of HSCI and BGI Tech Solutions

Guest speaker:
Xin Jin

Senior Research Scientist at BGI

Xin Jin joined BGI in 2009. He has involved and been leading several important scientific research projects, including the Sino-Danish Diabetes Project (LUCAMP), building the  human pan-genome project, high altitude adaptation project and Autism Genome 10K project. Now Xin  is senior research scientist at BGI. He and his team mainly focus on sequencing  based researches  including complex disease, mendelian disorder and population genetics.
