“Life Innovates, Biology Integrates: A Vision for the Biological Sciences” Dr. Joanne Tornow Assistant Director for Biological Sciences, National Science Foundation Reception immediately following, sponsored by the Catherine and Don Kleinmuntz Center for Genomics in Business and Society
"Identification of Triticum Aestivum chromosomes possessing genes that confer natural tolerance to Halauxifen-Methyl"
This event brings together scholars, mostly in American literatures, to talk about their "second book projects," books that they're in the midst of writing.
Professor Aida El-Khadra, renowned expert in theoretical particle physics, will discuss her research in probing the smallest of particles of nature, and what those findings might reveal about the world around us.
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
Part of the 1619 & Beyond Series, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Department of African American Studies at the University of Illinois.
"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
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"
Are trade wars good for American agriculture and agribusiness? Ambassador (retired) Mustard, who served over three decades in USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) promoting exports, including 19 years abroad as an agricultural attache, counselor, and minister-counselor, will comment on current U.S. agricultural trade policy from his perspective as the FAS historian.
"How do soil microbiome respond to cover crops? A global meta-analysis"
In this talk, Dr. Morten Oxenboell will discuss how rural populations in medieval Japan dealt with conflicts and maintained order and security in such an environment and how this may change the way we look at medieval Japanese society.
Prof. James N. Eckstein, a pioneer in the field of superconductors, will describe how superconductors are created, and how we might use these new and exciting materials in our future.
