Biophysics Seminar: Kranthi Kiran Mandadapu, University of California Berkeley: On the role of motility and glassy dynamics in growth of bacterial monolayers into the third dimension| Zoom

Mon, Nov 23, 2020, 12:15 pm

Many mature bacterial colonies and biofilms are complex three-dimensional (3D) structures. A key step in their developmental program is a transition from a two-dimensional (2D) monolayer into a 3D architecture.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Biophysics Seminar: Seppe Kuehn, University of Chicago| A sparse mapping from structure to function in microbial communities|Zoom

Mon, Nov 16, 2020, 12:15 pm

The metabolic function of microbial communities emerges through a complex hierarchy of genome-encoded processes, from gene expression to interactions between diverse taxa. Therefore, a central challenge for microbial ecology is deciphering how genomic structure determines metabolic function in communities.

Biophysics Seminar: Allan Drummond, University of Chicago: Rethinking the cellular response to heat shock, from biophysics to physiology| Zoom

Mon, Oct 26, 2020, 12:15 pm

Cells across the tree of life respond to a sudden, nonlethal rise in temperature--heat shock--in similar ways. Following heat shock, proteins and mRNAs form clumps, certain genes turn on, and protein synthesis and cell growth sharply decline.

Biophysics Seminar: Stefano Allesina, University of Chicago: Predicting coexistence in experimental ecological communities| Zoom

Mon, Oct 19, 2020, 12:15 pm

When experimenting with a large pool of species, a common problem is to determine a priori whether a certain subset of species can coexist when co-cultured. We propose a simple statistical model in which a number of species assemblages are observed, and the coexistence of novel assemblages is predicted out-of-fit.

Biophysics Seminar: Gurol Suel, University of California San Diego| The role of inorganic ions in bacterial resilience

Mon, Sep 28, 2020, 12:15 pm

We have been working to measure and understand how ion fluxes and ionic interactions regulate fundamental biological processes, and in particular promote stress tolerance in bacteria. I will present our recent work that builds on our discovery of action potentials generated within bacterial biofilms.

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.

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.

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: 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...
