Plant Genome Engineering Symposium (PGES)

Jennifer Doudna
May 31
9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
UC Berkeley’s first ever, student-run, Plant Genome Engineering Symposium (PGES) will be held from 9am to 6pm onTuesday May 31st, 2016 at Li Ka Shing Center in Berkeley. PGES aims to expand and enrich the available knowledge about the potential for genetic engineering and modification in plant systems.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar

Kumaran S. Ramamurthi
Aug 31
12 - 1 p.m.
Ramamurthi’s laboratory studies fundamental mechanisms that cells use to differentiate and divide in an effort to understand how these processes may go awry during disease. His lab focuses on how proteins localize to particular subcellular locations and how they subsequently assemble to form large structures during development and cell division. Recently, he discovered that the shape of cellular...

Buchanan Endowed Lecture

Jing-Ke Weng
Sep 7
12 - 1 p.m.
Weng's lab has broad interests in understanding the origin and evolution of plant specialized metabolism at enzyme, pathway, and systems levels, as well as how plants exploit discrete small molecules to interact with their surrounding biotic and abiotic environments. Their work in plant metabolic evolution impacts a fundamental question in biology – how do complex traits evolve in a Darwinian...

Center for Computational Biology Seminar

Sep 7
4 - 5 p.m.

Britt Glausinger - PMB Seminar

Britt Glausinger
Sep 21
12 - 1 p.m.
The Glaunsinger lab studies the creative strategies viruses use to manipulate gene expression in host cells. Their primary focus is RNA-based regulation of gene expression, including both transcriptional and posttranscriptional control.

Elizabeth Haswell - PMB Seminar

Elizabeth Haswell
Oct 12
12 - 1 p.m.
The Haswell laboratory's long-term goal of research is to reveal the molecular mechanisms that underly the perception and transduction of mechanical signals in plants.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar

Erin Goley
Oct 19
12 - 1 p.m.
The Goley Lab is broadly interested in understanding cellular organization and dynamic reorganization, with particular focus on the roles of the cytoskeleton in these phenomena. The lab uses cell biological, biochemical, genetic, and structural approaches to dissect cytoskeletal processes with the aim of understanding how they work in molecular detail. Currently, they are focused on investigating...

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar

Benjamin Wolfe
Nov 2
12 - 1 p.m.
The Wolfe Lab uses tractable microbial communities from food systems to study the ecological and evolutionary forces that shape microbial diversity. They also use food as a tool for improving microbial literacy through teaching and outreach.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar

Lars Dietrich
Dec 7
12 - 1 p.m.
The Dietrich Lab studies bacterial models for biological shape and pattern formation. The lab also focuses on molecular mechanisms of pattern formation in bacterial communities and mechanisms of membrane invagination and shape determination in purple phototrophs.
