The CALS community is invited to attend a genetics faculty candidate presentation by Brad Nelms, postdoctoral fellow in the Biology Department at Stanford University. Nelms will present on reconstructing the developmental program into meiosis with single-cell RNA-seq. The talk will take place on Monday, January 27, 2020, at 10:30 a.m. in Room 1111 of the Genetics/Biotech building (425 Henry Mall).
Nelms is a postdoctoral fellow in the Biology Department at Stanford University. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin–Madison with a triple major in Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Physics, and his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Biophysics. He studies cell differentiation during reproductive development and meiosis in maize, and is particularly interested in understanding how the molecular events of meiosis are connected to larger changes in cell physiology, genetic diversity, and plant life cycle transitions.
