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 [...]

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 [...]
