The Sethuraman lab will be at the 2017 CSUPERB Symposium in Santa Clara, CA from January 5th-7th, 2017 at the Santa Clara Marriott. Dr. Sethuraman will be hosting a biotechnology design workshop on conservation genomics and policy (Thursday 10am-6pm), a graduate student information session on balancing work and life (Friday 5pm-7pm), and a lunch topic table session on model-based population genomics (Friday 11:30am-1pm). Yumary and Michael will present a poster on their recent work on predatory lady beetle population genetics (Friday 8pm-10pm) , and Shiori will present her and Melissa's work on PPP, the NSF funded pipeline for model-based population genomics (Saturday 9am-11am). Interested in our work? Come find us! See the full schedule and venues here. See you in Santa Clara!
I am looking to hire a scientific programmer/postdoc to help spearhead our NSF-funded project on developing a pipeline for model-based population genomics. The position will be based at CSUSM, but will have the potential for ample collaborative development with the Hey Lab at Temple University. If you're interested, see the full job posting and apply here.
Dr. Sethuraman will give a talk at MiraCosta College's Oceanside CA campus on 12/2 (Friday) at noon in Room 4526, addressing the MiraCosta College STEM Research Club on the genomics of structured populations.
Yumary and Michael presented their results from analyzing mitochondrial genomic data from predatory lady beetles, Harmonia axyridis and Hippodamia convergens at the 2016 Student Poster Showcase today!
Dr. Sethuraman will be presenting his recent work on genomic islands of differentiation at the Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies (IBEST) Fall Seminar series on Thursday, 11/17/2016. See the full schedule here. See you in Moscow, ID!
The Sethuraman lab is excited to be presenting two posters at the CSUPERB symposium in Santa Clara, CA in January 2017! Yumary and Michael will be presenting a poster on their work in analyzing mitochondrial demographic histories of Hippodamia convergens and Harmonia axyridis populations, while Shiori will be presenting a poster on PPP (Popgen Pipeline Platform) v.1.0, our new NSF funded project on a Galaxy Project based GUI for model-based population genomics. See you in Santa Clara!
How do genes and genomes evolve in populations? Why is there so much diversity among human populations? What happens to new mutations? How do new species evolve? How do species go extinct? The answers to all these questions, and more form the core of POPULATION GENETICS, being offered this SPRING 2017 to undergraduate and graduate students at CSUSM.
This course will fill an upper division science elective for biology majors with molecular/cell biology, and general concentrations, and is open to graduate students as well.
Prerequisite - BIOL 352 Genetics

Our new manuscript on a GUI for IMa2p has now been accepted at Molecular Biology and Evolution (pending minor revisions). You can access the packages for various operating systems on Jared's Git Page at https://goo.gl/RO5Y5E
The Sethuraman Lab welcomes its first members - Melissa Lynch, Michael Rubio, Shiori Takehara, and Yumary Vasquez, all exceptional undergraduate students in the Biology/Biotechnology programs at CSUSM. Our lab meetings are on Tuesdays, 4-5 PM in the Biology Department conference room in SCI 2.
