Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Actin and microtubule crosstalk impact cell patterning and development"

Magdalena Bezanilla
Feb 22
12 - 1 p.m.
Molecular Mechanisms Behind Plant Cell Growth How cells grow, one of the most fundamental aspects of biology, remains an open question. My research program focuses on plant cells, which unlike many other eukaryotic cells are not motile. Confined by a relatively rigid cell wall, plant cells take a wide variety of shapes within tissues of the entire plant and ultimately these shapes dictate...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "From the Evolution of an Organelle to Photosynthetic Function"

Arthur Grossman
Mar 1
12 - 1 p.m.
Our activities over the last five years have been extremely diverse, crossing over various disciplines. We have explored areas ranging from identifying new functions associated with photosynthetic processes, the mechanism(s) of coral bleaching and the impact of temperature and light on the bleaching process, metagenomic and genomic diversity among primary producers in hot spring mats, metabolic...

Center for Computational Biology Seminar

Mar 1
4 - 5 p.m.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "Crossing the kingdoms: Plants, Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Endobacteria"

Paola Bonfante
Mar 8
12 - 1 p.m.
Biology of Plant-Microorganism Interactions She coordinates a research group of more than 15 members: Eight out of them have a permanent position belonging to the Department of Plant Biology of the University of Torino and to the National Council of Research (Soil Mycology - Institution of Plant Protection/CNR): the other components are early researchers (Ph.D students and postdocs).

Building Resilience: From Theory to Management

Mar 13
4 - 5 p.m.
We will highlight some of the underlying biophysical mechanisms and propose approaches for agroecosystems researchers to monitor and assess resilience that consider the unique characteristics and goals of intensive agricultural systems.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Plant signal transduction cascades - from phenotype to atoms and back"

Michael Hothorn
Mar 15
12 - 1 p.m.
Signal perception at the cell surface and transduction of this signal to the cell’s interior is essential to all life forms. Plants have evolved membrane-integral receptor proteins and associated signaling cascades that drastically differ from the well-studied systems in animals. Our aim is to dissect these signaling pathways in mechanistic detail.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "When is a fungus not a fungus?"

Thomas Richards
Mar 22
12 - 1 p.m.
The primary focus of my research is to determine the evolutionary relationships of the eukaryotes and the cellular and genomic innovations associated with the emergence and diversification of the eukaryotic cell.
