It’s great to see some of the natural and unexpected synergies that surface at think and drink. Last week was a great example of a talk about modeling of bacterial competition for metabolites followed by a very experimental talk on the actual free energies of various metabolic reactions. Hopefully we are succeeding in fostering new contacts within the institute and related departments.
For our next Think & Drink on February 3 we will have two very different talks. The first from Henry Mattingly (of the Shvartsman lab) will explain his work on how different levels processivity affect multisite phosphorylation. Then Sudarshan Chari (Ayroles lab) will tell us about compensatory evolution in wing development mutants of Drosophila.
