Recorded: Friday, September 27 Scientists are increasingly using social media as vehicles through which to communicate with other scientists and the public. Social media platforms also provide excellent opportunities to build professional networks, learn about opportunities, and develop a sense of community around what can be at times a difficult and lonely vocation. In this […]
When: Tuesday, September 10, at 1 PM EDT | 10AM PDT Individual Development Plans (IDPs) are a tool to facilitate student-trainer relationships and help students and post-docs of all levels to evaluate their project and career progress and set goals for the future. Katie Murphy and Laura Klasek are graduate students in the Plant Biology […]
This season’s theme is “Cultivating a Career”, and we’ll talk about this from both sides–ideas and advice for your own career AND for helping the careers of others. Be sure to listen to our previous seasons while you wait and stay tuned! http://cast.rocks/hosting/8420/S4E0-Teaser.mp3 How to listen, download and subscribe to The Taproot podcast The Taproot […]
This page is a collection of news, information, and events about the Plant Cell’s 30th anniversary, or #ThePlantCELLebration30!…
What does your lab work on? My lab studies the mechanisms of lateral root morphogenesis in Arabidopsis. We combine molecular genetics, cell biology and microscopy to understand how these new roots are robustly formed. Tell us about the key findings from your recent article in Plant Direct. This article links to another interest of my lab: […]
What does your lab work on? My group studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which plants sense and response to mechanical stimuli. In particular, we focus on a class of molecular mechanoreceptors called mechanosensitive ion channels. Tell us about the key findings from your recent article in Plant Direct. This project was meant to be […]
What does your lab work on? We combine functional genomics with synthetic biology approaches to study the metabolism of redox-active plant natural products that can harnessed for applications relevant to agriculture and human health. We are particularly interested in specialized quinones like the notorious allelochemical juglone made by black walnut trees and the anticancer compound […]
Being an effective mentor involves making yourself available to support and advise someone when they need it, delivering that support in a way that makes sense to them, and always keeping that person’s best interests in mind. In this webinar we discussed methods of mentorship and how to become a better mentor. This webinar coincides […]
