Speaker: Dr Geoffrey Hill, Auburn University
Eukaryotic performance hinges on the coordinated function of the products of the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in achieving oxidative phosphorylation.  Because two genomes are involved, function is maintained only through perpetual selection for mitonuclear coadaptation.  I’ll discuss how the

Gram-negative bacteria can survive in harsh environments in part because of the presence of the outer membrane (OM), which comprises lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and phospholipids (PLs) in the outer and inner leaflets, respectively.

Increased human disturbance to forest ecosystems has exacerbated the spread of fungal pathogens to non-native environments. Rust pathogens (Pucciniales) can spread long distances by human activity and wind dispersal, and can cause severe disease outbreaks in cereal crops and in forest trees.

Speaker: Qi Cheng - PhD Candidate - Broer Group
Apical broad-spectrum neutral (0) amino acid transporter B0AT1 (SLC6A19) is mainly expressed in small intestine and kidney, mediating the transport of all neutral amino acids in a Na+-dependent manner.

Speaker: Annisa Satyanti, Nicotra Group, E&E, RSB
Alpine ecosystems are considered to be particularly sensitive to the effect of global warming because they are characterized by species adapted to low temperatures. Plant responses to a changing climate will depend on their potential to establish and recruit following seed germination.
