Evolutionary Genomic Innovation Within the Phylum Arthropoda

January 1, 1970

Stephen Richards, Associate Professor, Human Genome Sequencing Center, Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine Arthropods comprise the largest and most diverse phylum on Earth and play vital roles in nearly every ecosystem. Their diversity stems in part from variations on a conserved body plan, resulting from and recorded in adaptive changes in the genome. Dissection of the genomic record of sequence change enables broad questions regarding genome evolution to...

Magnetic Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites: Advanced Materials for Medical and Environmental Applications

January 1, 1970

J. Zach Hilt, PhD, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Kentucky Magnetic nanocomposites are a relatively new class of advanced materials, which have attracted interest as intelligent materials for biomaterial and other applications. In Hilt’s lab, he is primarily interested in magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) due to their ability to respond to an alternating magnetic field (AMF) resulting in local energy delivery and potentially localized heating. We have...

Evolution vs. Intelligent Design in Software

January 1, 1970

Stephanie Forrest, PhD, Director, Biodesign Center for Biocomputing, Security and Society Computer programmers like to think of software as the product of intelligent design, carefully crafted to meet well-specified goals. In reality, large software systems evolve inadvertently through the actions of many individual programmers, often leading to unanticipated consequences. Because software is subject to constraints similar to those faced by evolving biological systems, we have much to...

Driving Biological Discovery: An Expanding Toolkit for Affinity Proteomics

January 1, 1970

John Paul LaCava, PhD, Research Professor, Rockefeller University While there are many methods that can directly or indirectly detect the existence of protein interactions, there are few that permit investigators to retrieve and transfer intact physiological interactions from the cell into an appropriately stabilizing in vitro environment. The distinction is significant: in the latter case, the parts of the cell are physically isolated and...

Grant Application Office Hours

January 1, 1970

Rachel Levinson, Executive Director, National Research Initiative, Knowledge Enterprise Development, ASU Every sponsor has a process for developing research priorities and turning those into funding opportunities. What if you had the means to identify those priorities before funding opportunity announcements are published and use that intelligence to enhance your probability of funding success? Come to a discussion of best practices including looking upstream at future opportunities,...

Science at the forefront at Biodesign C grand opening

January 1, 1970

The mission of the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University started with the desire to replicate a single blade of grass. That’s what President Michael Crow told a crowd of about 450 researchers, faculty, staff, students, city and state education officials and members of the public gathered Monday to celebrate the opening of Biodesign C, the third of four facilities planned to accommodate the institute’s cutting-edge research efforts. Crow referred to the accomplished...
