“Plant ion homeostasis and dynamics is crucially dependent on root mediated uptake from the soil. Historically the consequences of ion over- or undersupply have been - for good reasons -largely studied in the context of long-term adaptation to specific soil types. However, since all ionic nutrients and toxic cations are…
Sequencing on the cheap: ants, cats, primates, de novo genomes, methylation, and commensals by 1 person with $1000
Using a nanopore sequencer, I generated a novel genome from scratch for the carpenter ant, along with mitogenome and commensal wolbachia genomes with the 2nd best assembly on NCBI. I will present how one…
An introduction to shell and command line interface of the Unix family of computer operating systems. This workshop is intended for all users, with no prior experience required.
(1) Understanding the command line interface structure
(2) Common useful commands (e.g., ls, pwd, cd)
(3) Navigation using the command…
Seminar title: Comparative structural genomics of pathogen effectors and plant immune receptors: from natural diversity to precise modification
Abstract: Plants rely on the population level diversity in the innate immune receptors to recognize rapidly evolving pathogen-derived molecules. Using comparative structural genomics, we…
Talk title: Sex, Drugs, and C. elegans
Abstract: Using the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and tractable parasitic nematode species, we have uncovered multiple modes of action and mechanisms of resistance for commonly used anthelmintic compounds.
We would like to invite you to the UC Riverside Single Cell Core Grant Program Announcement Seminar on September 22nd (Thursday), 10 AM-11 AM at Genomics Auditorium 1102A.
Please join us to learn about the modern single cell solutions with split-pool barcoding technique. Single cell RNA-Seq has become a required tool in today's…
Title: "Interactions between host genetics and the microbiome that suppress plant pathogens"
If you cannot attend in person, please email IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for the zoom link.
Host: Dan Koenig
Abstract: In agriculture, microbial disease outbreaks are often associated with the emergence and spread of single pathogenic lineages.…
Title: "Photosynthetic and Photorespiratory Organelles: Dynamics and Role in Environmental Response"
If you cannot attend in person, please email IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for Zoom link.
Host: Ye Xu (Xuemei Chen lab)
Abstract: The life of eukaryotes relies on subcellular organelles that compartmentalize specific sets of biochemical and…
Title: "Reaching out for the sun: dealing with the threat of carbon deprivation"
Please email IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for Zoom link.
Host: Meng Chen
Abstract: Plant growth ultimately depends on fixed carbon, thus the available light for photosynthesis. Due to canopy light absorption properties, vegetative shade combines low blue (LB…
