3D Model of the Malaria Parasite Genome!

(April 6, 2014)

A research team led by IIGB cell biologist Karine Le Roch has generated a 3D model of the human malaria parasite genome at three different stages in the parasite's life cycle -- the first time such 3D architecture has been generated during the progression of the life cycle of a parasite.

Outreach to Local Community College Students

(April 6, 2014)

Twenty-one students from Riverside Community College participated in the Sequence to Success DNA Barcoding Challenge, which involved analyzing fish samples and was coordinated by IIGB's Alex Cortez, James Burnette III and undergraduate researchers at the Neil A. Campbell Science Learning Laboratory.

Understanding Plant Growth and Development

(March 14, 2014)

IIGB professor of cell biology Zhenbiao Yang led a research project that demonstrated the existence of an extracellular auxin sensing system in plants and uncovered the decades-long mystery of how this system works to control plant developmental processes.

International Plant/Insect Interaction Symposium at UCR!

(March 5, 2014)

In recognition of UCR's historic contributions to and current strengths in entomology, plant biology, and plant pathology, IIGB organizers were selected to host the 2nd International Hemipteran-Plant Interactions Symposium (HPIS). The three-day event will be held on June 23-25, 2014 at HUB Rm 302 and connect 200 scientists, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from around the world.
