Most Sackler colloquia are held at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center, in Irvine, California.
Epigenetic changes in the developing brain: Effects on behavior
March 28-29, 2014
Organized by Donald W. Pfaff and Eric Barrington Keverne
Symbioses becoming permanent: the origins and evolutionary trajectories of organelles
October 16-17, 2014
Organized by W. Ford Doolittle, Patrick Keeling, John McCutcheon and Jeffrey Palmer
Co-sponsored by Canadian Institute for Advanced Research
This colloquium has a goal of filling the gap between ‘endosymbiont’ and ‘organelle’ by identitying two experimental areas, Genome Evolution, and Integration and Control, where substantial advances have been made in both endosymbiont and organelle systems, but where the full potential of these advances has not been met due to the absence of a comparative framework. The Genome Evolution theme will address issues of genome reduction and the relationship between genomic architecture and sequence evolution. The Integration and Control theme will focus on processes through which two previously independent evolutionary individuals come to work together, such as gene flow, protein trafficking, signaling and transporters.
Registration will open in spring 2014. Email email@example.com to subscribe to the email list.
