Marc Stift from The Department of Biology, University of Konstanz, Germany, will give the talk entitled "Inbreeding depression and the transition to selfing in North American Arabidopsis lyrata"
Siri Fjellheim from Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), will give the talk entitled "Life at high latitudes: the adaptive basis for successful diversification of the grass subfamily Pooideae to temperate regions"
Kirsten Bomblies from The John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK, will give the talk "The evolution of meiosis in diploid and tetraploid Arabidopsis arenosa"
Sebastian Mueller is a researcher from David Baulcombe's lab at The Department of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge, UK. He will give the talk entitled "Epigenetic of heterosis in tomato - a bioinformatic examination".
Michael Lenhard from Institute of Biochemistry and Biology, University of Potsdam, Germany. He will give the talk entitled "Molecular basis of floral adaptations to plant breeding systems"
Jack Leo from the Evogene section will present his newly accepted paper on "A New Strain Collection for Improved Expression of Outer Membrane Proteins "
Dr Gaëtan Burgaud (University of Brest) will give a joint AQUA and EVOGENE seminar on “Insights into the diversity, physiology, functions, ecological roles and biotechnological potential of deep-subseafloor fungi using an integrated approach”
David Šmajs will give the talk entitled "Bacteriocins of the family Enterobacteriaceae: molecular structure and ecology".
David Šmajs is a Professor at Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic
Seminar will feature two short talks entitled
The repeat structure of two paralogous genes, Yersinia ruckeri Invasin (yrInv) and a “Y. ruckeri Invasin-like molecule”, (yrIlm) sheds light on the evolution of adhesive capacities of a fish pathogen by Agnieszka Wrobel from Dirk Linke group
Unicellular origin of the Microprocessor and microRNAs by Arthur Haraldsen from Kamran Shalchian-Tabrizi group
For the Evogene seminar Monday 21th August Sundy Maurice and Jørn Henrik Sønstebø will present the project FunGen and a case study of the genetic structure among 11 polypore fungal species. Fungal Conservation Genetics (FunGen) is a collaborative project with NINA, NIBIO and SLU, aiming to reveal the effect of forest fragmentation on the genetic variation of wood-decay fungi throughout Fennoscandia. Jørn Henrik Sønstebø is a population geneticist who has recently joined the mycology Group, will briefly present his background (NMBU, NIBIO, NIVA, NHM, UiO etc. and how FunGen will benefit from his expertise.
Gregory Velicer, ETH Zürich, Switzerland will give a lecture on: Diversification of social identity in natural and experimental populations of a cooperative microbe
László Nagy from the Fungal genomics & Evolution lab in Szeged, Hungary
László is a young and dynamic group leader with an interesting portfolio. His group focuses on the basic principles of genome evolution with an emphasis on the evolution of complexity and genomic mechanisms of parallel/convergent evolution. They combine phylogenetics with comparative and functional genomics to bring new insight to the field using the multitude of whole-genome.
