Canceled. To be re-scheduled: Patrick Secor: Filamentous bacteriophages: Master manipulators of bacterial virulence potential
Mon, Apr 22, 2024, 12:00 pm1:30 pm

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic bacterial pathogen. Most P. aeruginosa isolates are infected by a filamentous virus (phage) called Pf. At sites of infection, filamentous Pf virions accumulate where they increase mucus viscosity, promote bacterial colonization, and directly stimulate innate anti-viral immune…

Michael Hinczewski: The price of evolution: how thermodynamics shapes gene regulation
Mon, May 6, 2024, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

Many of the physical processes in a cell consume energy, but we are only beginning to understand how these costs have influenced the course of evolution. Biology is strewn with counter-intuitively complex mechanisms whose evolutionary predecessors must have consumed significant energy resources without any clear fitness benefit.  So…

María de la Paz Fernández: Sex Differences in the Drosophila Circadian System
Mon, May 13, 2024, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

Circadian clocks regulate the timing of various behavioral and physiological activities in most organisms on a 24-hr scale such that they are phased appropriately to external, cyclic changes in the environment. The clock neuronal network in Drosophila melanogaster is comprised of  ~150 neurons distributed bilaterally in the brain,…
