Environmental Sciences Seminar: Zachary Tessler, Environmental Sciences Initiative, ASRC
  • Title: Workshop: Git for Scientific Software Development and Collaboration
  • Zachary Tessler, Environmental Sciences Initiative, ASRC
  • Abstract: Git is a software tool for managing and sharing code, and is often used for collaboration through GitHub (or Bitbucket, or GitLab, or …).
  • If you write any code, or regularly use open-source software, git is a tool to make your life easier, though it has a somewhat steep learning curve. For instance, it allows you to make changes to your code, and then easily roll everything (or just some) back if you need. You can see a history of changes, roll back to old versions, share with other collaborators, even recover from accidental deletion of files.
  • This workshop will introduce you to what git offers, basic use of git for managing code changes and branching, basics of remote repositories, and using GitHub to access or contribute to open-source software.
  • Please register at
  • Bring a laptop if you can. Please install git first, from (or a from a package manager). Also make a free account at GitHub (

SEMINAR ON BIOCHEMISTRY, BIOPHYSICS & BIODESIGN: Jun Liu, Yale University School of Medicine

Abstract: Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) has emerged as the method of choice to bridge the informational gap between light microscopy and atomic structure determinations, enabling visualization of molecules and organelles in their native cellular landscapes at molecular resolution. My laboratory is dedicated to developing high-throughput cryo-ET pipelines in which both data collection and image analysis are streamlined and automated. Fueled by recent breakthroughs in both hardware and software that transformed cryo-EM, our high-throughput cryo-ET pipeline has become increasingly powerful, enabling us to visualize molecular machines in their native cellular context at resolutions not possible by any other technique. Here, I will present in situ structural information that has been systematically utilized to gain novel insights into flagellar assembly, protein secretion, and host-pathogen interactions.
