"Gene by environment interaction and the evolutionary genomics of environmental response in plants"

Dave Des Marais, Harvard, presents this lecture. From his website:

I study the diversity of life at many different scales. Like most of us, I am amazed by the visual diversity of plant life. But I am also fascinated by the diversity of genes, proteins, and other molecules which give rise to the beautiful plants that surround us. My research addresses how molecular processes shape organismal diversity, and how these processes evolve within and between species of plants.

"Range-wide studies of genetic and transcriptomic diversity in sunflower"

Edward McAssey presents a seminar. Hosted by: John M. Burke. His research focus is plant evolutionary genetics and genomics. More specifically, studying the genetic basis of evolutionary divergence within the sunflower family (i.e., the Compositae or the Asteraceae). He also maintains an interest in the ecological and evolutionary impact of transgene escape from genetically modified crops into their wild relatives.
