Biophysics Seminar: Bryan Grenfell and Jessica Metcalf: Dynamics of acute epidemic disease: from measles and influenza to Coronavirus| via Zoom

Mon, Apr 13, 2020, 12:00 pm

Please join us here:  https://princeton.zoom.us/j/937188539

We review the dynamics of acute immunizing infections. We then use this as a backdrop to discuss the dynamics and control of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Canceled-Biophysics Seminar: Justin Kinney, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory: Massively parallel assays, machine learning, and the biophysics of gene regulation|Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Apr 6, 2020, 12:00 pm

Gene expression in all organisms is controlled by short DNA and RNA sequences called cis-regulatory elements (CREs). Proteins in the cellular milieu bind to nucleic acid sequences present within CREs, interact with one another, and thus form macromolecular complexes that modulate the expression of nearby genes.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Canceled-Biophysics Seminar: Stefano Allesina, The University of Chicago: Predicting coexistence in ecological communities| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Mar 30, 2020, 12:00 pm

The study of small experimental communities has been key to the development of ecology as a discipline. Yet, for most ecological communities, the number of experiments required to build, model, or analyze the system vastly exceeds what is feasible, rendering these communities experimentally intractable.

Canceled-Biophysics Seminar: Na Ji, University of California, Berkeley: Imaging the brain at high spatiotemporal resolution|Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Mar 23, 2020, 12:00 pm

To understand computation in the brain, one needs to understand the input-output relationships for neural circuits and the anatomical and functional relationships of individual neurons therein.

Biophysics Seminar: Andreas Gahlmann, University of Virginia: Visualizing Bacterial Physiology at High Resolution using Single-Molecule Tracking and Lattice-Light Sheet Microscopy |Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Mar 9, 2020, 12:00 pm

Our lab develops new imaging approaches for visualizing bacterial physiology in relevant contexts: We use live-cell single-molecule localization microscopy and lattice-light sheet microscopy to access 3D spatial and temporal information with high resolution.

Biophysics Seminar: Andrew York, Calico: A bolt-on single-objective light-sheet design with uncompromised numerical aperture|Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Feb 24, 2020, 12:00 pm

Spinning disk confocal modules are “core facility friendly”; they insert conveniently between a commercial microscope base and camera, improve image quality and add no significant drawbacks. In contrast, high numerical aperture (NA) light sheet microscopy often requires radical sample modification, substantial user re-training and fully...

Cancelled. To Be Rescheduled. Biophysics Seminar: Stephanie Palmer, University of Chicago: How behavioral and evolutionary constraints sculpt early visual processing|Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Feb 17, 2020, 12:00 pm

While efficient coding has been a successful organizational principle in visual neuroscience, to make a more general theory behavioral, mechanistic, and even evolutionary constraints need to be added to this framework.

Biophysics Seminar: Elizabeth Jerison, Stanford University: Dynamics of adaptive immunity in zebrafish| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Feb 10, 2020, 12:00 pm

The immune responses that defend us against pathogens are driven by stochastic processes amongst populations of cells. Enormous progress in immunology over the last few decades has identified most of the components of this complex system, including the cell types and the molecules used for communication.

Biophysics Seminar: Sven van Teeffelen, Department of Microbiology, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France: Control of cell volume in rod-shaped bacteria|Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Feb 3, 2020, 12:00 pm

Bacteria exhibit a high degree of intracellular macromolecular crowding. To control the level of crowding cells must increase their volumes in response to the accumulation of biomass during growth. This coordination is fundamentally not understood in any cell type.

Biophysics Seminar: Dmitry Rinberg, Neuroscience Institute, NYU Langone Health: Cracking the olfactory code using behavior| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Jan 27, 2020, 12:00 pm

Two of the most fundamental questions of sensory neuroscience are: 1) how is stimulus information represented by neuronal activity? and 2) what features of this activity are read out to guide behavior? The first question has been the subject of a large body of work across different sensory modalities.

Biophysics Seminar: Navish Wadhwa, Harvard University:Environmentally regulated self-assembly of the bacterial flagellar motor| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Dec 16, 2019, 12:00 pm

Macromolecular protein complexes perform essential biological functions across life forms. The assembly of such complexes is known to be regulated at the level of gene transcription, but little is known about the factors that control their assembly once the mature protein subunits enter their target space (cytoplasm, membrane, or cell wall).
