Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Taking stock: the impacts of genetic diversity for herpes simplex virus (HSV)"

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...

Elliott Smith, Emerging Technologies and Bioinformatics Librarian
Aug 30
12 - 1 p.m.
A hands-on workshop introducing NCBI bioinformatics tools such as PubMed, Gene, Protein, Nucleotide, and BLAST.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Regulation of Chromatin Replication by Histone Variants"

Yannick Jacob
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...

Center for Computational Biology Seminar

Advanced PubMed

Elliott Smith, Emerging Technologies and Bioinformatics Librarian
Sep 6
12 - 1 p.m.
A hands-on workshop introducing advanced features of PubMed that can help your searching to be more effective and efficient.

Mendeley Citation Management Workshop

Becky Miller
Sep 12
4 - 5 p.m.
Mendeley is a reference manager that enables you to organize, read, share, annotate, and cite your research papers. This hands-on workshop will give beginning Mendeley users practice importing citations and creating bibliographies. The Bioscience Library Training Room is equipped with PCs, or you are welcome to bring your laptop.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Mimicry of plant ribosomes and translational control mechanisms by mammalian poxviruses"

Derek Walsh
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: "Role of viruses in the microbiome"

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: "Breaking the Silence - Chemical and Synthetic Approaches for Plant Developmental Biology"

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: "Cheating, community context, and coevolution in the yucca-yucca moth mutualism"

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: “Seeing The Light: Color Vision and Photoacclimation in Cyanobacteria”

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: "STRIPAK, a conserved eukaryotic signaling complex, controls fungal cellular development"

Ulrich Kuck
Oct 18
12 - 1 p.m.

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...

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 6
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...

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

Silke Robatzek
Nov 8
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

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...
