Genetics Seminar hosted by the Genetics Graduate Interdisciplinary Program.
Dr. Wheeler is an associate professor in the University of Arizona Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science. He earned a bachelor's in evolutionary biology and a doctorate in computer science both from UArizona. He spent five years as a postdoc in the research group of Sean Eddy at Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Janelia Research Campus, then joined the computer science faculty at the University of Montana in 2014 where he remained until his recent move back to Arizona in 2022. Dr. Wheeler leads a large group whose research can be broadly described as “algorithms and machine learning approaches for computational biology” primarily focused on applications to genomics, drug discovery and animal behavior classification.
