a brief summary of the presentation seminar discussion in general you start by stating the hypothosis being tested and any relevant background information

a brief summary of the presentation/seminar/discussion (in general, you start by stating the hypothosis being tested and any relevant background information, then describe the methods of testing, if appicable, and then results they found / conclusions they came to), plus (ii) a short statement providing your thoughts about the topic, data presented and speaker, and (iii) 1-2 questions that came to mind listening to the talk. These really don’t need to be long, half a page is fine, just be clear and thoughtful. Developing RNA-targeting CRISPR for use in plants* David Cook Plant Pathology Kansas State University The discovery and development of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR) and associated effector proteins (Cas) for eukaryotic genome editing has impacted broad biological disciplines. From treating genetic disease to improving the worlds food supply, the full range of CRISPR applications are set to impact society for the coming decades. There are both practical and scientific applications, however, where permanent DNA editing could be unwanted or insufficient. To overcome these hurdles and expand the scientific tool-kit for functional genomics, we are developing the more recently discovered RNA-targeting CRISPR systems, termed Cas13, for use in plants. Most studies to-date have characterized how various Cas13 orthologs function using in vitro studies, fewer have studied their function in bacterial or human cell lines, and understanding how they function in planta is in its infancy. Our initial results point to an unexpected interplay between Cas13-dependant and independent effects, which will be discussed along with future directions. Other projects in the Cook lab related to genomic control of fungal pathogenesis and chromatin dynamics will also be presented in an effort to foster discussion and collaboration across campus.
