Optogenetic and Chemogenetic Tools for Mapping Molecular and Cellular Circuits

60 Evans Hall
  • Prof. Alice Ting, Stanford University, Genetics/Biology/Chemistry
The first part of the talk will describe optogenetic tools we have developed for labeling and manipulating functional circuits in the brain (e.g., FLARE and related tools). The second part of the talk will describe chemogenetic tools we have developed for mapping molecular interactions in living cells (e.g., APEX and TurboID). ******** Alice Ting did her PhD in Chem here at UC Berkeley in 2000 (Go Bears!) and postdoc at UCSD. She joined the faculty of MIT, rising to full professor in 2014, and moving to Stanford Genetics in 2016. Awards include NIH Transformative Research and the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator.
