UC Davis Genome Center
Isabelle Henry has been a Project Scientist at the UC Davis Genome Center since 2011.
She received a BS degree in Biology and an MS degree in Biochemistry from the University of Liege, Belgium, and a Ph.D. degree in Biology from the University of Washington, Seattle.
She uses genomic approaches to investigate and harness the effects of gene dosage variation on gene function. She works on a variety of crop species, with an emphasis on polyploid species. Current projects include deciphering the mechanisms of sex determination in persimmon, developing efficient methods for mutation detection in large populations, developing breeding and functional genomics resources in poplar, and bringing mint into the genomic era.
