Melike Lakadamyali: Super-resolution imaging of chromatin structure and dynamics

Mon, Nov 25, 2019, 12:00 pm

Nucleosomes help structure chromosomes by compacting DNA into fibers.  Chromatin organization plays an important role for regulating gene expression; however, due to the highly crowded nuclear environment and the nanometer length scales of chromatin fibers, it has been very difficult to visualize chromatin in vivo.

Damon Clark: Mechanisms underlying visual illusions in flies

Mon, Dec 2, 2019, 12:00 pm

Visual systems detect many features of natural scenes, including motion. Motion detection guides critical behaviors like hunting, evading predators, and finding mates. It can be framed as an inference problem, in which light intensity measurements are combined to estimate a latent variable of image velocity.

Hana El-Samad: Biological Feedback Control

Mon, Dec 9, 2019, 12:00 pm

Organisms are an evolutionary masterpiece of feedback control, featuring a mind-boggling capacity to self-correct. In this talk, we discuss our attempts to both understand feedback control in cells and to forward engineer it with de novo designed proteins.
