Exploring gene function across humans and model organisms

This series of seminars introduces opportunities for exploring gene function across humans and model organisms and provides tips and tutorials to help explore useful websites and databases. These events will be useful to investigators at all career stages and across different model organisms, as well as for human biologists. We hope this will add a new dimension to research, reveal unanticipated phenotypes, speed up discovery, allow new funding opportunities, and lead to the discovery of new fundamental aspects of biology. Read more about the series and GSA’s efforts to connect researchers in GSA President Hugo Bellen’s blog post: Advancing both basic science and medicine by studying human disease genes in model organisms
