Title:  "Babbage's Cabbage:  The Logic of Information Processing in Plants" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for Zoom Link. Host:  Julia Bailey-Serres Abstract: At least one in seven people on this planet right now is malnourished. This incalculable loss to human potential will grow only more dire with the impending failures of the agricultural system in the face [...]

Title: "Synthetic genetic circuits to modify plant development" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for Zoom Link. Host: Alex Borowsky Abstract: A plant’s form is an important determinant of its fitness and economic value. For example, the shape of a plant’s root system influences its ability to reach essential nutrients in the soil or to acquire water during [...]

Title: "Control of cellular degradation pathways by chloroplast signaling" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for the Zoom Link. Host:  Katie Dehesh Abstract: Chloroplasts constantly experience photo-oxidative stress while performing photosynthesis. This is particularly true under abiotic stresses that lead to the accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). While ROS leads to the oxidation of DNA, proteins, and [...]

Title: "eHALOPH and the evolution of salt tolerance in plants" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for zoom link. Host: Katie Dehesh Abstract: The earth has an abundant supply of water, but unfortunately for most plant species, most of this water contains a lethal concoction of salts. How is it, then, that most plants cannot tolerate seawater? Apart [...]

IIGB Seminar: Hua Bai, Iowa State University

Title: "Mechanisms of aging: From inter-organ communication to inter-organelle cross-talk" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for zoom link. Host: Naoki Yamanaka Abstract: Inter-organ and inter-organelle communication plays important role in cellular and tissue homeostasis. In this talk, I will present our recent and unpublished work on the novel roles of peroxisome in liver-heart communication and mitochondrial dynamics [...]

Title: "Genome resolved metagenomics reveals role of iron metabolism in regulation of plant microbiome response to drought stress" Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for zoom link. Host:  Julia Bailey-Serres Abstract: Recent studies have demonstrated that drought leads to dramatic shifts in the partnerships plants have with the microbial world. These changes appear highly conserved across a broad [...]
