Biostatistics Seminar: Leveraging human brain tissue to better understand schizophrenia

This week's biostatistics seminar speaker will be Dr. Andrew Jaffe from the Departments of Mental Health and Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

 

Abstract: We present ongoing efforts to characterize genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic signatures of the human dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and relevance to the causes and consequences of schizophrenia. We describe recent resources of datasets including single nucleus RNA sequencing (snRNA-seq), spatial transcriptomics (with 10x Genomics Visium), and whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS). We also present statistical methods related to maximizing the utility of homogenate brain tissue related to reducing confounding and deconvolving cell type-specific signal.

Dial-In Information

Please contact Jiebiao Wang (jbwang at pitt.edu) for Zoom meeting information and password.

Thursday, February 25 at 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
