About this Class

Dr. Ting Wang is a Sanford C. and Karen P. Loewentheil Distinguished Professor of Medicine at the McDonnell Genome Institute, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Wang’s lab investigates epigenetic determinants of cell fates in normal development and regeneration, in cancer, and in evolution, by integrating cutting-edge experimental and computational technologies. His lab developed widely used DNA methylomics technologies, algorithms to identify regulatory motifs and modules, and analytical and visualization tools to integrate large genomic and epigenomic data.

Dr. Karen Miga is an Assistant Professor in the Biomolecular Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). She is also the Associate Director of the UCSC Genomics Institute. In addition, she co-leads the Telomere-to-Telomere (T2T) Consortium and is the Project Director of the Human Pangenome Reference Consortium (HPRC) Production Center at UCSC. Her lab aims to uncover a new source of genetic and epigenetic variation in the human population, which is useful to investigate novel associations between genotype and phenotype of inherited traits and disease.
