报告题目：How Cyanobacteria Tell Time
Director, Center for Circadian Biology; HHMI Professor; Chancellor's Associates Chair (III) in Molecular Biology; Member of the Faculty of 1000 Biology, Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and Member of the National Academy of Sciences.
Susan Golden received a Ph.D. (1983) in Genetics from the University of Missouri. After postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, she joined the faculty of Biology at Texas A&M University (1986), where she was promoted to Distinguished Professor in 2003. She joined the Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD in 2008. In the early 1990s she began a collaborative project with C.H. Johnson (Vanderbilt University) and T. Kondo (Nagoya University) that demonstrated circadian rhythms of gene expression in S. elongatus, which is currently the only model organism for a prokaryotic circadian clock. The molecular basis of timekeeping in S. elongatus is now a major focus of her lab.
