Join us for a conversation with Alondra Nelson (President, Social Sciences Research Council), and Herman Gray (Emeritus Professor of Sociology), moderated by Jenny Reardon, Professor of Sociology, UC Santa Cruz. The racially charged moment we are living through in the U.S. comes with tremendous danger, but also with great opportunity. The dangers are obvious— blatantly racist statements by our president, the emboldenment of white supremacist movements, the rampant loss of black life at the hands of the police, the demonizing of…

Gene Editing in Livestock: Prospects and Policy

January 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Biomed 200

Alison Van Eenennaam, Department of Animal Science, University of California, Davis Abstract  Animal breeders have made incredible genetic progress by selecting animals with desirable traits as parents of the next generation. Remarkably, this selective breeding, or artificial selection, was historically accomplished based solely on outward appearances (phenotypes), without understanding which genes influence particular characteristics. Advances in technology, including artificial insemination and embryo transfer have provided further tools for breeders to maximize the genetic contributions of highly productive animals. Genetic engineering…

Mechanistic Studies of Cancer Associated Polymerase Mutations Using Yeast Pols Delta and Epsilon

February 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PST

Abstract  A myriad of DNA polymerase mutations have been associated with human disease. Mutations in human POLE and POLD have been identified in cancers derived from all tissues. It is believed that many of the mutations in the protein products of these genes, Pols Epsilon and Delta respectively, are drivers of hypermutation in some tumors. The proposed mutator phenotype suggests the amino acid substitutions associated with these mutations are structurally and or functionally significant. Here we present ongoing mechanistic studies…
