Paul Jensen - Marine natural products: the unspoken language of the ocean
Most organisms in the ocean use small molecule natural products to interact with each other and the environment. These molecules are structurally diverse, mediate important ecological interactions, and have been exploited as a source of chemical diversity for drug discovery. We study the natural products produced by marine microorganisms, with particular emphasis on a model group of marine actinobacteria. We are interested in the ecology and evolution of natural product production and in developing improved methods for their discovery. This presentation will focus on omic technologies that are providing unprecedented insight into the world of marine natural products.

*While single-use cups and plates will be available, we are asking everyone to bring their own reuseable items.
The University of California system is committed to going zero waste by 2020, and we’re already diverting 69% of our solid waste from landfills system wide. UC San Diego needs everyone to pitch in with waste reductions efforts. Bring your own plate and cup to the Institutional Seminar instead of using single-use items. #MyLastTrash
