Genotype to Phenotype: Bridging Comparative Genomics and Cell Biology


This workshop aims at bringing together computational, cell, and evolutionary biologists.

Enabled by the plummeting costs of sequencing and greatly improved analytical tools, today’s cell biologists have an unprecedented opportunity to place decades of model systems research within a comparative, evolutionary framework. However, we lack the ability to accurately map genotype to phenotype. Is it possible to accurately infer or predict cellular morphology, dynamics and function from genomic data? Moreover, once we understand a key regulator’s molecular function and cellular role in any given model, can we predict how its orthologs will behave in a novel or reconstructed genomic context and cellular milieu?
