Two master students (Keerthana Saravanarajan and Blánaid Ní Chuinneagáin) from M.Sc. Molecular Medicine joined the lab. Keerthana will work on immunogenomic profiling, and Blánaid will work on computational analysis of human genetic variation.
Shigeki had a meeting with the Lithuanian Ambassador in Ireland, Egidijus Meilūnas, and discussed research collaborations.
Oisin Roche-lancaster, an undergraduate student from Molecular Medicine, joined the lab and has started his project on immunogenomics.
Evan Koch, a PhD student (Novembre lab) at University of Chicago, visited the lab and gave a talk on "The effects of demography on deleterious variation: population differences and selection inferences".
Shigeki joined European Mathematical Genetics Meeting 2017 (Estonian Genome Center, Tartu, Estonia) and presented a talk on "Estimating the onsets of selection on new mutations and standing variation in human populations".
