Nov 27
  • Monday | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
    Genetics Program Seminar - Dr. Mark Estelle
    3503 Thomas Hall, Stephens Room

    Dr. Mark Estelle is from the University of California San Diego in the Division of Biological Sciences

     The Estelle laboratory uses the genetically tractable plant Arabidopsis thaliana to identify and characterize auxin response pathways. Their work has shown that auxin promotes the rapid degradation of a family of transcriptional repressors called the Aux/IAA proteins via the ubiquitin proteasome pathway.

  • Monday | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
    Genetics Program Seminar - Dr. Noah Whiteman
    3503 Thomas Hall, Stephens Room

    Dr. Noah Whiteman is from the University of California, Berkley in the Center for Computational Biology.

    The Whiteman Laboratory uses a vertically-integrated approach to study adaptations involved in the evolution of parasitism and host resistance. Tools they use include those from biochemistry, experimental evolution, genetics and genomics, molecular biology, and neuroscience. They hope to unravel how free-living organisms evolve to become parasitic and how hosts defend themselves against parasites.
