Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "The function and evolution of phased, secondary siRNAs in plant reproduction"
Seminar | February 26 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Blake Meyers, Principle Investigator, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center and University of Missouri
Blake's work focuses on genome-scale studies of RNA and components of RNA silencing pathways, emphasizing plant reproductive biology and the evolution of plant small RNAs. Blake has been involved with next-generation DNA sequencing since its earliest days, and he has developed a number of applications of this technology, including computational methods, that have had a deep impact on plant genomics.
