Center for Computational Biology Seminar: Dr. Erick Matsen, "Learning how antibodies are drafted and revised"

Learning how antibodies are drafted and revised Antibodies must recognize a great diversity of antigens to protect us from infectious disease. The binding properties of antibodies are determined by the sequences of their corresponding B cell receptors (BCRs). These BCR sequences are created in "draft" form by VDJ recombination, which randomly selects and deletes from the ends of V, D, and J...

"Effector Dynamics During Biotrophic Invasion by the Rice Blast Fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae": Barbara Valent, Kansas State University

The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae, (formerly Magnaporthe grisea), causes a serious disease of rice worldwide. The blast fungus leads a hemi-biotrophic lifestyle, which means that it initially invades living plant cells. However, cellular and molecular details of its biotrophic invasion strategy were not known. We are applying fungal molecular genetics, gene expression profiling, live-cell...

Biomedical HIV Prevention in Women

The last several years have yielded results from several large randomized controlled trials that evaluated the efficacy and safety of chemoprophylaxis for prevention of HIV-1 acquisition. These trials have evaluated administration of tenofovir-based antiretroviral preparations either orally or vaginally, and informed the U.S. FDA’s approval of tenofovir-emtricitabine for HIV-1 pre-exposure...

Center for Computational Biology Seminar: Dr. Ryan Gutenkunst

Inferring natural selection on proteins from network- and population-scale models My group aims to understand how mutation and natural selection drive the evolution of the complex biomolecular networks that underlie life. To do so, we build detailed computational models to compare with genomic and molecular biology data. I'll first discuss recent “bottom-up” work in which we are using...
