Computationally designed miniproteins (~40 amino acids in length) have exciting potential as therapeutics and are also ideal model systems for studying protein biophysics. We recently introduced massively parallel methods for designing, expressing, and experimentally testing tens of thousands of entirely new proteins, leading to an avalanche of new protein structures. Assaying these "de novo"... More >

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "RNA structure encodes specificity in intracellular phase transitions"
Seminar | February 7 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Amy Gladfelter, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The Gladfelter lab is interested in how cells are organized in time and space. We study how cytoplasm is spatially patterned and how cells sense their own shape. We also investigate how timing in the cell division cycle can be highly variable yet still accurate.
Panel Discussion | February 7 | 12:30-1:30 p.m. | Haas School of Business, Wells Fargo Room
Its time to reimagine the way we eat from the ground up.
Each day, we see more irrefutable evidence that our global food system is broken. Soils erode, fisheries collapse, forests shrink, heart diseases rise. Studies show a new way of organic and regenerative farming is necessary to meet the challenges of the future. But what about a new way of eating? Can the principles of regenerative... More >

The current hostility in US-Russian relations goes back to the aftermath of the collapse of the USSR and the formal end of the Cold War. US International behavior in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa progressively alienated Russian leaders, leading, under Putin, to sharp reactions. In response to those reactions, US leaders of both parties came to demonize Russia and Putin and to up the... More >

A revolution is occurring in biology due to new technologies in the world of electron microscopy. In addition to the monumental advances in the Cryo-EM, which garnered the Nobel Prize last year, a new wave of 3-dimensional imaging is taking over the rest of the electron microscopy field. With these advanced 3D electron microscopes, cells and tissues are being visualized at new depths and... More >
