    March 23 4:00pm
    Classical food web theory once limited to trophic relationships has evolved to embrace a variety of network interactions such as mutualisms and indirect effects.  The process of decomposition is one of the most critical network interactions that indirectly influences all ecosystem functioning, especially primary production.  Likewise, more »

    Abstract: Considerable clinical epidemiological data sports the notion that some form of cardiac damage occurs during severe pneumonia episodes. Recent work by our laboratory demonstrates that Streptococcus pneumoniae, the leading cause of community-acquired pneumonia, is capable of myocardial invasion, cardiomyocyte killing, and incurs long more »
  • GCDB Seminar Series: "The parasitic plant Cuscuta uses microRNAs to manipulate gene expression in its hosts." Mike Axtell, Ph.D. Pennsylvania State University.
    March 29 4:00pm
    Cuscuta spp. are a genus of obligate holoparasitic plants that lack roots, leaves, and do not perform appreciable photosynthesis. Cuscuta attaches to the stems and/or petioles of host plants using a specialized organ called a haustorium. Cuscuta haustoria directly access both host xylem and host phloem to acquire water and nutrients. Worldwide, more »
