Bioinformatics lecture series presents speaker on synthetic biology Nov. 4

The Bioinformatics Distinguished Lecture Series, which is coordinated by Ohio University’s Bioinformatics Laboratory, will present a talk on synthetic biology on Fri., Nov. 4 at 10:10 a.m. in Stocker Center 103.

Laurie J. Heyer, associate professor of mathematics at North Carolina’s Davidson College, will speak on “Computing with Bacteria.” In the new field of synthetic biology, mathematicians, biologists, computer scientists, and others in traditional science and engineering disciplines collaborate using engineering principles to design biological machines for biomedical, energy, environmental and other applications.

Heyer will provide an overview of synthetic biology and describe her team’s research.

Co-author of Discovering Genomics, Proteomics, & Bioinformatics, the first undergraduate bioinformatics textbook, Heyer received her B.S. in mathematics from the University of Texas at Arlington and her Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She was a postdoctoral fellow with Michael Waterman in the Center for Computational and Experimental Genomics at the University of Southern California.

The lecture is sponsored by Ohio University’s biomedical engineering program.
