The relationship between plants and fungi and the crazy life of killifish are on the menu for the Nov. 1 Better Know a Lab seminar at Portland State University.
The Better Know a Lab seminar series features graduate students from PSU’s biology, chemistry and physics department, plus the occasional invited speaker.
Presenting this time will be Brett Younginger, from the Ballhorn Lab, and Claire Riggs, from the Podrabsky Lab. Both labs are in PSU’s biology department. Younginger will tell plant-fungi tales, while Riggs will share stories of Brazil and killifish — both aiming to entertain, inspire and educate seminar attendees.
The event will begin at noon in Room 107 of Science Building 1, per the organizers, and is open to students, faculty and the public. The series are brown-bag-style lunchtime affairs, but some free food also will be available.
