Colloquium: Stoltzfus on the parallels between C. elegans and its parasitic cousins

Dr. Stoltzfus (Millersville University website)

This week’s seminar in the Biology Colloquium series features Jonathan Stoltzfus, Assistant Professor of Biology at Millersville University. Dr. Stoltzfus studies the developmental genetics of nematode worms like free-living Caenorhabditis elegans, and an array of related parasitic species. His talk will address the similarities and differences between these groups: “To what extent can C. elegans be used as a model for parasitic nematodes?”

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode 8596. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
