Seminar of Interest (Jan 30): Dr. Jesse Lasky
January 30, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Dr. Jesse Lasky from Pennsylvania State University will be sharing his research on “Plant Responses to Changing Environments via Plasticity and Adaptation.” This is a great opportunity for us to learn the big challenges in ecology and evolutionary biology, expanding our knowledge beyond the molecular biological research that we do on our floor.
The Lasky Lab studies “the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity, with a focus on spatiotemporal variation in high-dimensional systems. In particular, [they] study the drivers of genomic variation among populations and compositional variation in diverse communities. Similar questions, such as when environmental versus dispersal constraints are more important, challenge both evolutionary biologists and ecologists. Answering these questions is essential for predicting biodiversity responses to global change.”
