Speaker: 

Nir Yosef (UC Berkeley)

Location: 

Calvin Lab auditorium

Complex interacting systems are ubiquitous in the world -- from our social networks to the molecular circuits that guide the behavior of our cells. Charting the connectivity of such systems and understanding their function has proven an extremely important, yet daunting task. In this talk, Professor Nir Yosef will describe his work on inferring networks of molecules that control the regulation of genes in immune cells, a process that is key to explaining how our immune system responds to stimulation.

This lecture is one of over 300 events on campus during Cal Day, a once-a-year opportunity for one and all to experience the stimulating, energetic and multifaceted life of UC Berkeley. Learn more about Cal Day here.
