In the Gibbs research group, our goal is to identify the mechanisms that underlie self versus non-self recognition in cells.
With the 150 Years of Women at Berkeley campaign, professor emerita Sung led a video project interviewing faculty, students, and staff.
Perhaps you’ve been foraging for mushrooms this season? Or are you just casually curious about the world’s continuing appetite for, and fascination with, fungi?
Viruses infect their respective hosts efficiently through a regulated process of recognizing highly specific receptors and subsequently transferring genomic material across cell membrane barriers.
The goal of my research is to use fungal symbioses, such as lichens, to address large scale questions such as mechanisms driving the latitudinal diversity gradient and projected outcomes of global climate change.
Allison Williams is a self-described structural microbiologist, interested in the interacting networks of bacterial nanomachines and how they sustain life through cellular communication.
Professor Kris Niyogi and Berkeley Lab research scientist Setsuko Wakao are featured in a podcast about diatom structure and genetics.
I am fascinated by the diversity of shape and form present in flowering plants. Research in my lab is focused on understanding the molecular underpinnings of this diversity – both how it develops and how it evolves.
