Film Screening: "The Fly Room"

Film - Series | January 14 | 5 p.m. | 245 Li Ka Shing Center


Center for Computational Biology, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology


The Fly Room is a sweeping, yet intimate portrait of the complicated
relationship between Calvin Bridges, father of modern genetics, and his
wide-eyed, ten-year-old daughter Betsey. The story helps bring to life one
of the most important scientific laboratories of the 20th Century, taking
place predominantly in one location: the original Fly Room laboratory
at Columbia University. The story...   More >

Center for Computational Biology


Long-range and highly accurate de novo assembly from short-read data is one of the most pressing challenges in genomics. Recently, it has been shown that read pairs generated by proximity ligation of DNA in chromatin of living tissue can address this problem, dramatically increasing the scaffold contiguity of assemblies. Here, we describe a simpler approach (“Chicago”) based on in vitro...   More >

Investigating the Neural Basis of Complex Spatial Behaviors Under Natural and Learned Conditions in Freely Flying Bats: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | January 29 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building | Note change in date


Prof. Michael Yartsev, UC Berkeley, Bioengineering / Neuroscience

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute


Navigation, both learned and natural, requires knowing where you are and the ability to decide, based on available evidence, where to go from there. Here, I will describe recent work, conducted in both terrestrial and flying species, addressing the neural mechanisms underlying these core functions.

I will begin with describing recent findings on the spatial representation system in the...   More >

Decoding Epigenetic and Transcriptional Programs in Cellular Differentiation

In order to differentiate into distinct lineages, multipotent cells
must undergo large-scale remodeling of chromatin and orchestrate
dramatic gene expression changes. How do multipotent cells encode the
potential for multiple cell fates, and how can we decipher the
transcriptional programs that carry out cell...   More >
