Ready for some personal news? Here goes. . . after a great deal of thought (and therapy), I’ve decided to close my lab down and leave academia. I know this type of thread is now verging on the predictable, so just a few details. 1/5

Purslane, a delicious semi-succulent drought-resistant wild plant that thrives in mall parking lots and highway overpasses has unlocked a new way to photosynthesize. Ideas for a new food future here #climate science.org/doi/10.1126/scia…

are you a North American Arabidopsis educator, researcher, student, community member? please sign up for this North American list to stay updated on exciting new things in the works (North America: Canada, USA, Mexico)
Do you live/work/teach or go to school in North America* and use Arabidopsis at least in part of your work? Consider opting-in to this North American Arabidopsis community member list to keep informed & involved of Arabidopsis things- e.g. our conferences, awards, funding (1/2)

I designed and sewed a quilt that represents my PhD research in @JackrelLab and then I took a picture of it by my bench. Here’s to the sixth and final year 👩🏼‍🔬🪡🧵

Very cool!!!
Incredibly happy to see our work presenting the Human Impacts Database (anthroponumbers.org) highlighted by Caltech. Congrats to the author team, especially my co-first author @rachel_a_banks, on getting this out there!

This show how this little cytosol space should be crowded ....
An image I made today on our Olympus FV3000 confocal from @Evident_LS. This is an edge of a mature Arabidopsis root cell. The vacuolar membrane (green) is pressed against the plasma membrane (magenta). Cytosol and most other organelles have to fit in the tight space in between.

Claremont McKenna College faculty opening! CMC recently decided to develop a new program to integrate the natural science disciplines, integrate computing and data science into the curriculum, and work closely with the social sciences and humanities… webapps.cmc.edu/jobs/faculty…

Update 📢 Blown away by interest in our EIR program @ArcadiaScience! Per usual, we are iterating in real time by refining our search space to "Idea-Agnostic" model. Check out blog for reasons why: bit.ly/3BDCiTS and apply: bit.ly/3yRQntF

Kari Miller (@ehaswell lab @WUSTL ) reminds us that plant cells are pressurized boxes and we need to think more about #mechanobiology in plant sciences. #PCBI See her recent paper @CurrentBiology cell.com/current-biology/pdf…

According to @WUSTLBio's Ivan Radin, the best offense is a great defense for some carnivorous plants. @radinbio's recent research details how molecules move dynamically in the leaves of carnivorous plants in response to touch from live prey. bit.ly/3ShSgZp

One of the most disturbing experiences of working from home during the pandemic was noticing all the surfaces that our cats put their butts on. You can’t unsee it. 🙀

Check out this incredible thread of resources for demystifying graduate school! @WUSTLdbbs
I’d like to share a thread about a new activity I developed for our incoming graduate students this year. After hearing a lot about the hidden curriculum, I wanted to provide some mechanism to ‘onboard’ our incoming students on topics related to success in graduate school.

When I was a PhD student at University of Missouri-Saint Louis in tropical biology doing field work in Ecuador and Argentina, I was allowed and encouraged to take a class in political science to shore up how politics intersected with conservation biology in Latin America. 1/

A misleading paper in @ScienceMagazine just came out talking about how a single gene can increase rice yield by 41-68%. As a (wanna-be) plant breeder, I’m here to tell you why this study is misleading, and we can’t “solve” yield through single genes 🧵 science.org/doi/10.1126/scie…

My "Friends don't let friends make bad graphs" series is somewhat complete. I think I covered the most common and egregious mistakes in graphing. Let me know if you see something egregious and I will add it to the series. github.com/cxli233/FriendsDo…
