    January 18 1:00pm
    Much progress has been made in elucidating the molecular networks required for specifying retinal cells, including photoreceptors, but the downstream mechanisms that maintain identity and regulate differentiation remain poorly understood. Here, we report that the transcription factor Glass has a dual role in establishing a functional Drosophila more »

    January 19 4:00pm
    Errors of chromosome segregation during meiosis are a leading cause of human aneuploidies. Faithful segregation requires homologs become tethered by crossing over, the exchange of homolog arms by recombination. Recombination is regulated by crossover assurance mechanisms to safeguard at least one crossover per homolog pair. However, younger men more »

    January 24 11:30am
    Since funding resources are always limited for conservation (and often directed towards a handful of charismatic vertebrate species), it is vital to have defensible schemes for prioritizing which vascular plant species are in greatest need of conservation attention.  Over two dozen systems have been devised, each differing in complexity and more »
