  1. Biological, Environmental, & Climate Sciences (BECS) Department Seminar

    11 am, John Dunn Seminar Room, Bldg. 463

    Hosted by: Ben Babst

    Main Research Interests — Dr. Coruzzi's lab initiated systems biology approaches in Arabidopsis and other species to study gene regulatory networks. Using network integration and machine-learning approaches, her lab generated the first dynamic and predictive regulatory networks in plants, a hallmark of Systems Biology. These networks uncovered novel hypotheses including nutrient control of the clock, and a Hit-and-Run transcription model. These informatic tools are embodied in a systems-biology enabling software platform VirtualPlantv1.3 (www.virtualplant.org), developed with NYU's Courant Inst. of Mathematical Sci. Dr. Coruzzi also leads a collaborative NSF Plant Genome Project - "Comparative Genomics of Seed Evolution" with co-PIs at the NY Botanical Garden, the American Museum of Natural History, and CSHL. This generated the largest genome-scale phylogeny of 150 seed plants, the BigPlantv1.0 matrix (http://nypg.bio.nyu.edu/bp/) available as an interactive browser, "PhyloBrowser." This resource enables researchers to explore the genomic underpinnings of plant diversification across a wide range of species.

  1. Young Researcher Symposium

    9 am, Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Hosted by: Christina Swinson

    The third annual Young Researcher Symposium will bring together early career researchers (postdocs and graduate students) from a wide range of disciplines across BNL to exchange information and practice presenting their research work in a supportive scientific environment. This event will showcase the high value that young researchers bring to BNL through their research accomplishments and provide them an opportunity to explore potential research collaborations across the laboratory. Furthermore, it offers an excellent platform to demonstrate cutting edge BNL research activities to external audiences. Participation in this event is open to all BNL postdocs and graduate students. The entire lab community and external guests from DOE and neighboring institutions are invited to attend. The program includes both oral and poster presentations by BNL postdocs and graduate students, a career panel, and a reception.

  2. Brookhaven Women In Science (BWIS) Lecture

    4:30 pm, Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Hosted by: Vivian Stojanoff

    Cheryl Hayashi, a biology professor from the University of California, Riverside (UCR), will give a talk at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory on Thursday, November 20, 2014, at 4:30 p.m., in the Physics Department Large Conference Room, Building 510A. Sponsored by Brookhaven Women in Science, the event is free and open to the public. All visitors to the Laboratory 16 and older must bring a photo I.D.

    Office of Educational Programs Event

    "High School Research Program (HSRP) Poster Session 2014"

    4 pm, Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 4:00 pm

    Hosted by: Scott Bronson

    Brookhaven National Laboratory's primary focus as an institution is research and development. Students participate in ongoing programs where a BNL scientist mentors a student on a research project during a six week summer session. Students may also work during the academic year, usually to complete their project.

    Instrumentation Division Seminar

    "The STAR proposed Time Projection Chamber Upgrade"

    Presented by Flemming Videbæk, BNL / Physics

    2:30 pm, Large Conference Room, Bldg. 535

    Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 2:30 pm

    The STAR experiment has proposed to upgrade the inner sectors of the STAR Time Projection Chamber. The upgrade is planned for the RHIC running in 2018 where a second phase of the Beam Energy Scan is being planned. The segmentation of the inner pad plane is being optimized, and new higher density electronics is being developed. In this talk I will discuss the proposed changes in the pad planes, and discuss the electronics ongoing R&D and implementation.
