Sonneborn Lecture: "How a really really big structure facilitates meiosis." Scott Hawley, University of Kansas Medical Center.
February 22 4:00pm
Although many of the core aspects of the meiotic process are highly conserved, many of the proteins and structures that mediate meiosis are rapidly evolving. Two examples of that diversity are the proteins that comprise the central region of the synaptonemal complex (SC) and the Mtrm protein (a regulator of Polo kinase). Our discussion of the SC more »

EEB Seminar Series: "Predicting forest responses to drought stress by linking stomata to whole-plant hydraulic strategies." Bill Anderegg, Ph.D. University of Utah
February 23 4:00pm
Forests absorb a quarter of human carbon dioxide emissions, greatly slowing down climate change, but the future of Earth's forests in a rapidly changing climate is highly uncertain. Plant stomata exert first order control on carbon, water, and energy cycling in ecosystems, yet most predictions of stomatal conductance arise from empirical reg more »
