"Identification of Triticum Aestivum chromosomes possessing genes that confer natural tolerance to Halauxifen-Methyl"
Trudy Mackay, PhD Clemson University; Professor, Department of Genetics and Biochemistry
There has been a surge in technologies to observe how genes and proteins change in the brain during disease. I will describe a new method, DART (drugs acutely restricted by tethering), to rapidly restrict drugs to genetically defined neurons in behaving mice. The approach offers a new way to establish causal circuit and molecular substrates of normal and aberrant behavior.
"Unraveling the hexaploid sweet potato inheritance using ultra-dense multilocus mapping"
Join the faculty and students of the School of Information Sciences as they share the breadth of their research. Presentations and posters will address socially relevant topics such as crowdsourcing, social media and misinformation, machine learning, text mining, censorship, and more. The showcase is open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.
Microbial strains have been successfully engineered to produce a wide variety of chemical compounds, several of which have been commercialized. As new products are targeted for biological synthesis, yield is frequently considered a primary driver towards determining feasibility. Theoretical yields can be calculated, establishing an upper limit on the potential conversion
"The Antimicrobial Resistance Crisis: How NIAMRRE Supports Solutions" Dr. Kristen Obbink, DVM, MPH Associate Director, National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE), Iowa State University
Soil solarization - An organic weed control strategy for specialty crop production
As part of the Big Data Summit, faculty, post docs, and graduate researchers can learn best practices of presenting their team/company at trade shows and networking events at the MWIN Big Data Industry Connect event on Nov. 11.
Cameron Currie, PhD University of Wisconsin - Madison, Department of Bacteriology
In this talk I will describe ongoing work focused on how the experiences of both mothers and fathers can induce epigenetic, neurobiological and behavioral effects and the interactive and multigenerational consequences of these effects.
"Fine mapping and mutagenesis of the NRT1.1 gene family in maize"
