Mike Levine (Director, Lewis-Sigler Institute, Princeton University) "Visualization of Transvection in Living Drosophila Embryos”
The work from Mike’s lab is an elegant blend of in vitro and in vivo studies that have provided countless insights into the regulatory events that govern segmentation and dorsal-ventral polarity. His work provided a dramatic example of combinatorial regulation at a complex enhancer and established new paradigms for transcriptional control.
Fellow biologist Sean Carroll said of Levine, "Mike's work has done for animal development what the work on the lac operon and phage lambda did for understanding gene regulation in simpler organisms ... Those two big discoveries had a very large conceptual significance for developmental biology and by extension for evolutionary biology."
Mike is a very engaging and dynamic speaker and this opportunity to hear him should not be missed.
