Dr. Blake Meyers Danforth Center University of Missouri Title: "The diversity, function, and evolution of secondary siRNA pathways in plants" Abstract: My lab has been focused on plant small RNAs for a number of years; most recently, we’ve been investigating the biogenesis, roles, and evolutionary diversification of pathways that give rise to “secondary” small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), more specifically, those triggered by microRNAs and generated in an unusual “phased” pattern. In 2015, we published work from maize in which we…
