Congratulations to the lab on publishing our 20th paper this year! Let’s keep up the amazing work.
We are organizing a Microbiome Symposium at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub on September 30, 2019.
Katie Pollard was featured in the podcast Human about different perspectives on what makes us human.
Katie Pollard co-authors an article about the contradictions and complications of restricted-use genomic data in public repositories, promoting fully open data and thoughtful attribution for data producers.
Seth Shipman joins the Gladstone Institute of Data Science & Biotechnology. The SF Business Times covers the news. Welcome Seth!
Postdoc Jason Shi is Visitor of the Week at Cold Spring Harbor, where he attended the Biological Data Science Meeting.
Alex Pico and colleagues hosted a fantastic WikiPathways Summit 2018.
Congratulations to postdoc Geoff Fudenberg for winning the best talk at the Northern California Computational Biology meeting!
The lab of Jennifer Doudna and Christof Fellmann joins our team at the Gladstone Institutes to develop CRISPR technologies for therapeutic human genome editing. The story is here.
Larry Berkelhammer makes a generous donation to Gladstone to support childcare for postdocs and others. Check out the press release. We were proud to be part of this!

Katie Pollard and other Women Who Lead in Life Sciences speak out on challenges for female scientists.
We combined massively parallel reporter assays with stem cell technology to show that nearly half of all Human Accelerated Regions (HARs) function as gene regulatory enhancers in human and chimpanzee neurons. We also detected differences in enhancer activity between human and chimpanzee HAR sequences, including interactions between nearby mutations. Check out the pre-print, story in Scientific American, and press release.
