Cancer Through the (Looking) ‘Omics Glass

Please join us Monday December 4, 2017, at 7pm for a seminar presented by Dr. Jason Bush, an Associate Professor in the Biology department at Fresno State. The Bush group is focused on problems of cancer. In particular, understanding the molecular basis of different aspects of cancer models to provide mechanistic insight. We often take an ‘omics’ or data-discovery approach that allows us to develop hypothesis-driven research for further conventional analyses. And, depending on the nature of the project, we utilize direct genetic material (DNA), gene expression changes (RNA), or subcellular material (proteins and metabolites) to identify perturbed pathways and biological dysfunction. This talk will cover different models and their underlying biological utility and significance along with a broader discussion about big data in the genomic era of cancer diagnosis and treatment.
