Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

Moriah Szpara
Aug 30
12 - 1 p.m.
A variety of viruses infect the human nervous system, often with severe consequences. While vaccines have largely defeated the paralysis caused by polio, other viruses such as rabies, West Nile virus, and herpes simplex virus (HSV) continue to cause neurological infections that require clinical intervention. More than 70% of adults in the United States carry HSV, whether they know it or not. HSV...

Sep 6
12 - 1 p.m.
We study epigenetics using plants as model systems. Our goals are to understand how the epigenome contributes to basic cellular mechanisms like DNA replication and gene silencing, and also complex processes like developmental transitions, trans-generational inheritance and aging. We are also interested in exploring how the epigenome can be modulated to improve current genome engineering...

Sep 13
12 - 1 p.m.
Research in our laboratory focuses on two aspects of DNA virus biology: 1) The role of the host translation system during infection by poxviruses. 2) Microtubule regulation and function during herpes simplex virus infection.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

David Pride
Sep 20
12 - 1 p.m.
Our laboratory focuses on the role that microbial communities play in human homeostasis, health and disease. We firmly believe that the various microbial components of human ecosystems including bacteria, viruses, archaea, and fungi are important factors that help determine the natural history of their hosts. Furthermore, their interactions with humans or their interactions with other microbial...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

Keiko Torii
Sep 27
12 - 1 p.m.
The Torii lab studies how plant cells coordinate proliferation and differentiation during organ morphogenesis to generate beautiful, orderly patterns. We aim to understand the molecular and genetic bases of cell-cell communication that specifies organ size, shape, and stomatal patterning through integrated approaches.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

Kari Segraves
Oct 4
12 - 1 p.m.
Understanding biodiversity requires more than identifying the number of species on earth. We must also elucidate how species interactions govern the dynamics of communities, ecosystems, and species diversity. My lab uses a broad combination of approaches including experimental ecology, field observations, molecular phylogenetics, and population genetics to understand the role that interspecific...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

Beronda Montgomery
Oct 11
12 - 1 p.m.
The Montgomery Lab pursues a common research theme of understanding how individuals perceive, respond to, and are impacted by the environments in which they exist. Primary research efforts of the group are focused on the responses of photosynthetic organisms to external light cues. Additionally, Montgomery pursues this theme in the context of effective mentoring in research environments.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

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...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar

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

Gloria Coruzzi
Nov 29
12 - 1 p.m.
Our research in Plant Systems Biology resides in Pasteur’s Quadrant – the scientific space where investigations of basic processes aim ultimately to be beneficial to society. Our network inference studies in Arabidopsis have enabled us to predictively model and manipulate gene regulatory networks affecting Nitrogen-Use Efficiency (NUE), a trait with impact on the environment, energy and human...

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...
