SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Sarah Kocher, Evolution of social behavior

Sarah integrates methods from many different areas of biology to study the evolution of animal behavior. She received her Ph.D. in Genetics from North Carolina State University with Drs. Christina Grozinger and Trudy Mackay, where she studied the underpinnings of queen-worker interactions in honey bees. As a postdoc at Harvard with Naomi Pierce and Hopi Hoekstra, she began to explore the genetic and ecological factors shaping variation in social behavior in halictid bees. She will talk about “Harnessing natural variation to study the evolution of social behavior”

SciLifeLab seminar series-Campus Solna, Andrea Pauli, Small proteins with big roles

Andrea (Andi) Pauli obtained her PhD in Kim Nasmyth’s lab at Oxford University, UK, where she provided the first direct evidence that the protein-complex cohesin has essential non-mitotic functions. For her postdoc, Andi joined Alex Schier’s lab at Harvard University, USA.While her original goal was to identify functional lncRNAs during zebrafish embryogenesis, Andi’s research led to two key discoveries that have shaped her research since: first, translation is widespread outside of protein-coding regions; and second, these newly discovered translated regions can encode functionally important short proteins. In September 2015, Andi established her own lab at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria, where she focuses on identifying new essential regulators during the germline-to-embryo transition. She will talk about “Small proteins with big roles – from coordinating cell migration to mediating species-specific fertilization”
