This Week’s guest is Dr. Melissa Wilson:  


Dr. Melissa Wilson is a computational biologist whose main research interests include sex determination, sex-biased biology, and sex chromosome evolution. Dr. Wilson was born in Oklahoma, and raised around the Midwest. She had no concept that a PhD was a thing one could obtain until her junior year of college in Nebraska when she was accepted into a summer REU. As a math major, she was a little out of her element when accepted into a PhD program in bioinformatics in 2005 at Penn State, having little formal training in biology, and no training in coding. Three children, two moves, and a lot of discovery later, she runs a lab studying sex differences in health and disease, and teaches introductory coding to biology majors. The Wilson lab is focusing on understanding the evolution of gene content on the sex chromosomes, including how sex chromosomes arise, and how dosage is maintained (or not) on sex chromosomes. Further, the Wilson lab also uses patterns of variation on the sex chromosomes, which hold unique signatures of evolutionary history to study demographic processes, including sex-biased bottlenecks and selection that may leave some populations more vulnerable to specific diseases.
