PMB Special Seminar: "Gating Plant Immunity and Death at the Nuclear Boundary"

Seminar | February 26 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | Energy Biosciences Building, First Floor Conference Room

 Yangnan Gu, Tsinghua University

 Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

The Gu lab uses a combined molecular, cellular, genetic, biochemical, biostatistical and bioinformatic approach to study the intriguing mechanism behind host-pathogen interactions. They focus on the role of targeted membrane trafficking and coordinated nucleocytoplasmic transport in activation, regulation and termination of the innate immunity. They are also interested in the immune regulatory role of nuclear envelope localized macromolecular complex (e.g. nuclear pore complex) and transmembrane proteins., 510-642-9999
