A monthly meeting to discuss computational microbial genomics. New complex questions in microbial function and ecology are stretching the limits of existing computational analytical tools. The Computational Microbial Genomics working group aims to bring together microbiologists and computational scientists to address this gap. Lunch will be provided. Join the mailing list or the Slack channel for updates and networking, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

Graduate school can be a stressful time; this workshop seeks to open a conversation about the importance of maintaining one's mental health while staying on top of tasks. Presenters will focus on healthy coping mechanisms, time management, dealing with impostor syndrome, and resources available to support graduate students. This workshop is for first-year graduate students. As always, time for networking and refreshments is included. This student-run series is funded by a grant from the IGB Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative. To sign up for our mailing list, please visit https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/478244111 and watch your email for the announcement.

Foellinger Great Hall, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts
Join us for a talk by Dr. Venki Ramakrishnan, Nobel Prize laureate and Group Leader, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, United Kingdom, entitled “My Adventures in the Ribosome.”
The ribosome is the ancient and enormous molecular machine that reads genetic information on mRNA to synthesize proteins. Although it was discovered in the 1950s, it took several decades to determine an atomic structure of the ribosome because of its complexity. This talk will cover Dr. Ramakrishnan's own efforts to unravel its structure. He will also speak about his own career which involved living on three continents and switching from his initial training in physics to learning and carrying out research in molecular biology.
Held in the Foellinger Great Hall in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, this talk is free and open to the public.
Dr. Ramakrishnan will also be part of the evening event "Gene Machine" at Krannert Center - details for this musical event can be found here.
