The vertebrate limb bud is a classical model system for developmental biology – with the advantage of having been studied for many decades. Despite this, and despite its relatively simple shape, a consensus model of its physical morphogenesis has not been reached.

How conflicts among animals are resolved? The dynamics of agonistic interaction offers an insight into how animals communicate and make a proper choice of actions in a context-dependent manner.

We study stress signaling pathways and the numerous factors that maintain proteins in a functional state in the human cell, often referred to as the proteostasis network. We aim to understand the function and dynamics of these networks in neurodegeneration and normal aging.

Don’t miss the premier celebration of interdisciplinary molecular biosciences for 2019 in the entirety of Santa Barbara County!

We have established a methodology to mutagenize every base pair of an entire viral genome and quantitatively monitor enrichment or diminishment of each genotype under specified growth conditions. The method enables generation of functional genomic maps under particular conditions (in vitro and in vivo) at a single nucleotide or single amino acid level.

Spring Insight is a campus-wide open house welcoming admitted students, prospective students and their families to campus. 

Tom Cech is an American Cancer Society Professor and HHMI Investigator at the University of Colorado where he also serves as Director of the BioFrontiers Institute.

Most cancer and cell biologists are familiar with the fact that mammalian cells grow poorly when cultured at low densities.

When interacting with their environment animals constantly make decisions. These decisions frequently aim at maximizing reward while avoiding negative consequences such as energy costs, pain, or long- term disadvantages.
