“Genomic Approaches to the Study of Plant Cell Wall Evolution from Algae to Angiosperms,” will be presented by Yanbin Yin of Northern Illinois University at 4 p.m. March 11 in the Beadle Center, Room E10. The seminar is free and open to the public.
Yin will talk about his lab’s research on plant Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes that are involved in plant cell walls synthesis. He will introduce the integrative approaches including genomics, transcriptomes and bioinformatics that they have been using for this research topic. Their long-term goal is to understand how plant cell walls have evolved.
The Beadle Center is located at 1901 Vine St. The complete schedule of seminars can be found at http://biotech.unl.edu/.
