Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "In an immobile plant cell world, mobile endophytic microbes can seek, stop and destroy invading pathogens"

Manish Raizada
Oct 25
12 - 1 p.m.
The focus of the Raizada Lab is to develop low cost technologies that empower farmers in North America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, focusing on technologies that reduce the need for synthetic nitrogen fertilizers and pesticides to grow corn and other crops, by replacing them with more natural, biological resources. In particular, the lack of nitrogen fertilizer limits crop production, but...

2017 CJS-JSPS International Symposium

Yuan T. Lee
Oct 31
9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Join us for this exciting two-day symposium featuring public talks by Nobel Laureates Yuan T. Lee (Chemistry, 1986), Saul Perlmutter (Physics, 2011), and Taka'aki Kajita (Physics, 2015), as well as several exciting panels discussing the Nobel Prize's impact on institutions, journalism, and research.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Reprogramming root cells for AM symbiosis"

Maria Harrison
Nov 1
12 - 1 p.m.
Most vascular flowering plants are able to form symbiotic associations with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. These associations, named ‘arbuscular mycorrhizas’, develop in the roots, where the fungus colonizes the cortex to access carbon supplied by the plant. The fungal contribution to the symbiosis includes the transfer of mineral nutrients, particularly phosphorus, from the soil to the...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Molecular Mechanisms of Organelle Formation in Bacteria"

Arash Komeili
Nov 8
12 - 1 p.m.
In the Komeili Lab, we have developed the tools to understand the molecular basis of magnetosome formation and magnetite biomineralization in Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1. These advances have helped us to uncover the potential function of a large number of "magnetosome genes." The current efforts in the lab are centered around defining the specific functions of these factors and leveraging...

Can Nature Save Us? Stories from the Natural World

M. Sanjayan, PhD
Nov 9
7 - 8:30 p.m.
2017 Horace M. Albright Lecture in Conservation At a time when humanity’s demands on the natural world have never been greater, Dr. M. Sanjayan’s keynote address highlights nature’s essential role in creating a livable future for people everywhere.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Cellular basis of immunity"

Silke Robatzek
Nov 15
12 - 1 p.m.
A paradigm for more than a decade, it has been known that host membranes respond to pathogen perception. It is now clear that the secretory and endocytic trafficking network are engaged by the plant’s immune system to actively defend against potential pathogens. Reciprocally, invasive pathogens have evolved means to utilize these trafficking pathways for the suppression of plant defences and to...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "The hidden life of the genome: Leveraging novel technologies to extract function from sequence"

Ronan O'Malley
Nov 29
12 - 1 p.m.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

Christine Jacobs Wagner
Dec 6
12 - 1 p.m.
Our laboratory is part of the Microbial Sciences Institute at the Yale West Campus. Our group studies the temporal and spatial mechanisms involved in bacterial physiology, with emphasis on chromosome dynamics, cell division, cell cycle regulation, cell morphogenesis and RNA biology. Our primary model organisms are Caulobacter crescentus, Escherichia coli and the Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia...
