12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis
Club EvMed

Join us for a conversation with Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis, Assistant Professor in Computational & Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

What makes each species unique? This seminar will discuss how thousands of small species-specific proteins contribute to molecular innovation in eukaryotes and the potential implications for human physiology in health and disease.

Attendees are encouraged to read Carvunis et al., 2012, "Proto-genes and de novo gene birth" (doi:10.1038/nature11184), Keeling et al., 2019, "The meanings of 'function' in biology and the problematic case of de novo gene emergence" (doi:10.754/eLife.47014.001), and Mudge et al., 2022, "Standardized annotation of translated open reading frames" (doi:10.1038/s41587-022-01369-0).
