CSB Departmental Seminar: “Swarming motility as a model microbial cooperative behaviour and importance of surfactants as socially beneficial exoproducts of bacteria”

November 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ramsay Wright 432

Professor Eric Deziel Centre Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie "Swarming motility as a model microbial cooperative behaviour and importance of surfactants as socially beneficial exoproducts of bacteria" Abstract: "In their natural ecosystems, bacteria persist as microbial communities, where they exploit elaborate systems of intercellular interaction and communication to adapt to changing environmental conditions. The recognition that bacteria typically act as multicellular groups should lead research efforts to better understand the emergent properties of organized microbial communities. «Swarming motility» is a poorly understood…

CSB Departmental Seminar: “Motivational gating of sleep and wakefulness”

November 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ramsay Wright 432

Assistant Professor Ada Eban-Rothschild Department of Psychology, University of Michigan "Motivational gating of sleep and wakefulness" Abstract: Our lab is interested in the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the intersection between sleep and motivation. Sleep and motivated behaviors are typically mutually exclusive, and animals need to carefully coordinate them to survive and reproduce. The timing and duration of sleep are regulated by circadian and homeostatic processes, yet motivational drives can strongly modulate the propensity of animals to stay awake or go to…

CSB Departmental Seminar: “Trans-species microRNAs from the parasitic plant Cuscuta target host mRNAs”

December 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ramsay Wright 432

Professor Michael Axtell The Pennsylvania State Universityie "Trans-species microRNAs from the parasitic plant Cuscuta target host mRNAs" Abstract: MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNAs that function to negatively regulate longer target RNAs. They are well known as important regulators of numerous gene expression modules in plants, animals, and humans. Parasitic plants are widespread in nature and can cause significant crop losses. One widespread genus of parasitic plants is Cuscuta, which has around 200 species that are collectively found world-wide. Cuscuta plants…
