Seminar | January 10 | 10-11 a.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
Stephanie Tzouanas Schmidt, Stanford University
Motivated by the intricacy and complexity of cellular differentiation, I am broadly interested in technology development for measuring and tracking cellular decision-making. My current research focuses on applying genome editing to engineer new tools for synthetic biology and genomics; in my talk, I will present two recent projects. In the first, I used CRISPR/Cas9 to write a cells lineage into... More >
Special Analysis Seminar: Completeness of the Bethe Ansatz for an open \(q\)-boson system with integrable boundary interactions
Seminar | January 10 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall
Ignacio Zurrian, Universidad Nacional de Cordoba, Argentina
We employ a discrete integral-reflection representation of the double affine Hecke algebra of type \(C^\vee C\) at the critical level \(q=1\), to endow the open finite \(q\)-boson system with integrable boundary interactions at the lattice ends. It is shown that the Bethe Ansatz entails a complete basis of eigenfunctions for the commuting quantum integrals in terms of Macdonald's three-parameter... More >

Dr. Megan Hochstrasser, Innovative Genomics Institute
Doors at 6:00 PM, Talk at 7:00 PM
CRISPR expert and science communicator, Dr. Megan Hochstrasser, will describe how genome editing works, what it can do, what exactly happened with the CRISPR babies, and how important it is to grapple with CRISPRs ethical implications sooner rather than later.
Developed here in Berkeley in just 2012, the CRISPR-Cas9 system lets scientists rewrite DNA in... More >

Good note-taking in meetings is essential to information retention, facilitating team communication, and ensuring that decisions and action items dont fall through the cracks. But not everyone takes notes in the same way, and not every note-taking method works for every kind of meeting.
In this workshop, well delve into the general philosophy of taking notes before getting high-level views... More >
