About the Webinar
Explore the past, present, and future of beer through the lens of genomics with Tammy Joska, PhD. This webinar outlines the physical and chemical properties behind delicious beers, and how these features arise from carefully controlled microbiological processes. Tammy discusses beer-making mysteries uncovered by next generation sequencing, and how synthetic biology will change the industry going forward.
What will you learn?
- Brief history of beer
- Basics of brewing and the properties of a good beer
- Genomics of yeast strains used in beer, wine and other spirits
- How genetic engineering will improve future beers
About the Presenter
Tammy Joska has her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Dartmouth College, where she studied structure-based drug design and patented a group of lead compounds against Anthrax. She has published 18 manuscripts in the areas of cardiovascular research, x-ray crystallography, chromatin remodeling and circadian rhythms. Dr. Joska's areas of interest include all levels of DNA sequencing for the purpose of molecular medicine, disease prevention, and basic science research. Of course, she is also interested in perfecting the process of yeast fermentation to craft the perfect brew.
