Seminar Explores Gene Mutation

MARCH 31, 2006--A presentation on predicting genetic mutation, sponsored by the University of Wisconsin – River Falls Center for Economic Research, is April 21 at 3:15 p.m. in room 321 South Hall.

The event is free and open to the public.

Anthony Varghese, a faculty member in computer science and information systems, will present "Mathematical Modeling of Atrial Fibrillation due to a Gene Mutation."

The presentation examines what Australian researchers found in dealing with a gene mutation that predisposes members of a family to life-threatening atrial fibrillation events. Varghese will show a computer simulation of the normal and mutated protein to illustrate what it does.

There will be a social and refreshment time from 3-3:15 in room 317 of South Hall.

Contact CER director Tabesh for more information at 715-425-3335 or e-mail hamid.tabesh@uwrf.edu
