Seminar: Physical Chemistry | September 12 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Our lab is developing new approaches to examine charge carrier dynamics in complex molecular systems at extreme spatial and temporal scales. Recently, our group has demonstrated coherent 4D Electronic-Raman spectroscopy and spectrally-resolved transient-absorption microscopy, methods that are uniquely sensitive to electron-phonon-vibrational interactions. We highlight the use of these... More >

Becky Miller, Bioscience and Natural Resources Library
Mendeley is a reference manager that enables you to organize, read, share, annotate, and cite your research papers.
This hands-on workshop will give beginning Mendeley users practice importing citations and creating bibliographies.
The Bioscience Library Training Room is equipped with PCs, or you are welcome to bring your laptop.
Workshop | September 12 | 4-5 p.m. | Bechtel Engineering Center, Kresge Engineering Library Training Room 110 MD
Anna Sackmann, Science Data and Engineering Librarian, Library and Research Data Management; Daniella Lowenberg, Research Data Specialist & Product Manager, University of California Curation Center
This workshop will take a deep dive into data publishing. Attendees will learn how to best prepare their data to be interpreted and reused by others. We will also explore repositories and the attributes that you should use to determine where to publish data based on type and funder or publisher requirements. This workshop is designed for graduate students in the physical and life/health sciences.
Registration opens August 29. Register online or by calling 510-642-9478 by September 12.

The prebiotic synthesis of RNA remains a critical and unsolved problem for origins of life research.
We are investigating the hypothesis that RNA evolved from an ancestral polymer (or proto-RNA) with molecular building blocks that had a strong propensity for self-assembly.
We are also exploring the hypothesis that oscillating environments facilitated RNA replication, before the emergence... More >
Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | September 15 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
The study of energy transfer (ET) processes is a cornerstone of modern physical and inorganic chemistry, which is driven by growing demand in efficient energy transfer and conversion necessary to build a sustainable energy society independent from fossil fuels. Specifically, materials with a predesigned pathway for ET can address urgent needs in fast enhancement of material performance in areas... More >
Lecture | September 16 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building
K.G. Lee, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
We live in a 13.7 billion year-old Universe populated by several trillion galaxies spanning billions of light years of space and time. Yet merely two hundred years ago, humanity did not know of this Universe outside of the Solar System. K.G. Lee will tell the story of how astronomers came to discover the true scale of the Cosmos, from Herschels attempts at mapping the Milky Way, to the discovery... More >
