Cross-kingdom RNAi and extracellular vesicle-mediated small RNA trafficking between plants and fungal pathogens with Hailing Jin

Department of Biology Seminar Series
-

Small RNAs (sRNAs) are short non-coding RNAs that mediate gene silencing in many cellular processes. We discovered that some sRNAs from eukaryotic pathogens, such as Botrytis cinerea, can move into host…



The neural control of adaptive behavior

Department of Biology Seminar Series with Nick Betley
-

Survival requires responding to constantly changing conditions. Over time, evolution has selected for neural circuits that ensure robust and adaptive responses to survival needs. My lab is focused on uncovering the…



Intra-genomic conflict and the preservation of genome integrity with Mia Levine

Department of Biology Seminar Series
-

Selfish DNA elements infest eukaryotic genomes. These “genome parasites” act akin to viruses, hijacking our cell’s machinery to increase their copy number in the host genome. Such selfish element proliferation can…
