This week we had our Inaugural IRL PI Meeting after several months of virtual meetings. The venue was the beautiful UCSB campus. Below is our agenda.
Overview Mito-nuclear communication & relevance to physiological performance – tutorial for modelers
Detail on markers, How tightly linked to physiological performance, Empirical Mechanisms of Epigenetics and Mito-nuclear communication
Consequences for gene expression and genome function
What makes epigenetics different from other types of phenotypic plasticity?
Overview of Modeling Approaches
Linking empirical to mode
Existing Coral Model Overview
Dynamical Models for Switching Metabolic States
Discussion of Core DEB and Eco parameters vs empirical measurements
How to maintain “living” large datasets
Discuss the role/involvement of the advisory committee
Overview Eco - Evo Model whiteboarding session: host-symbiont transmission modes, exchange, stress response
We were even able to get outside a bit.
