Event description

Description

Model organisms such as Drosophila melanogaster, Mus musculus, and Arabidopsis thaliana have allowed researchers to make great strides in advancing our understanding in a range of fields, including genomics, development, evolutionary biology and ecology. However, classic model organisms are not suitable to address many aspects of the life sciences, and advancements in molecular tools are now allowing researchers to expand their work into “non-model” systems. The topic of this one-day meeting focuses on the novel research being conducted on non-model organisms at UC Berkeley and the Bay Area. Many new tools such as RNA sequencing, chromatin accessibility, and CRISPR are being used by labs across campus, yet common problems likely arise independently when dealing with non-model systems.

We hope to bring together a local community of early-career & interdisciplinary scientists, leveraging non-model systems to ask unique scientific questions. The meeting will promote cross-disciplinary interactions by bringing together different departments and communities that likely have much to learn from the experience of others working on non-model organisms, such as technical challenges and experimental design.
