Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Regulated protein degradation in bacterial growth and stress response"

Seminar | April 25 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Peter Chien, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


We are an interdisciplinary lab focused on understanding regulated protein degradation and quality control using biochemistry, structural biology and cell biology. Our primary approach is to use both molecular and cellular techniques to understand the mechanisms that lead to specific substrate processing during basic cellular events.

Eavesdropping on Cortical Plasticity

Seminar | June 14 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center


Adi Mizrahi, The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


One of the overarching goal in our lab is to understand cortical plasticity in adult circuits. This goal remains challenging because cortical neurons are functionally heterogeneous and access to specific active neurons for further experimentation is limited. In the primary auditory cortex (A1), for example, spiking responses to natural stimuli like vocalization cannot be easily predicted from...   More >
