"Corn: Diversity and Origins"
Dr. Jeffrey Ross-Ibarra will discuss the biology of transposable elements — bits of DNA that can replicate and move in a genome — with examples of some of the amazing things they do, from Barbara McClintock’s colored corn kernels, to pollution-adapting moths and the human immune system. The presentation will include recent work suggesting that the genome can best be thought of as an ecosystem in which transposable elements replicate, evolve, and even compete with each other for resources.
