The Gulliver seminars take place every Monday at 11:30 am in the F304 room, and last one hour including questions. The seminars are in English, and the scientific topics are mainly those studied in the laboratory.

  • Lydia Robert (Laboratoire Jean Perrin, UPMC)
    Lundi 4 septembre 11:30-12:30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Dynamics of mutation accumulation and mutation fitness effects studied at the single cell level
    Mutations are the source of genetic variation upon which natural selection acts and therefore the driving force of evolution. In order to understand the generation of diversity among life forms, from the variety of Galapagos finches to the spread of antibiotic resistant bacterial strains, as well as the diversity (...)

  • Gaëtan Bellot (Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle, INSERM, Montpellier)
    Lundi 11 septembre 11:30-12:30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    3D self-assembly using DNA as programmable molecules
    Our goal is to build artificial molecular systems and machines sufficiently sophisticated to recapitulate and decipher fundamental aspects of biology and to help solve problems of medical interest. We use a DNA self-assembly method called DNA origami, which represents a landmark as the first practical method to (...)

  • Salima Rafaï (LiPhy, Grenoble)
    Lundi 9 octobre 11:30-12:30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Flowing properties of a microswimmer suspension : Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a model active particle
    Suspensions of motile living organisms represent a non-equilibrium system of condensed matter of great interest from a fundamental point of view as well as for industrial applications. These are suspensions composed of autonomous units - active particles - capable of converting stored energy into motion. The (...)

    Lundi 16 octobre 11:30-12:30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Electroosmosis with surfactants : from one interface to a macroscopic foam
    Effects of surface-active materials on free surface flows have long been reported (since Franklin's observation of wave damping) and are encountered in many applications involving for example liquid foams or sprays. Nowadays, gas/liquid materials with a controlled micro or nanostructure are used to design new (...)

General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so prefer planning a talk for a broad audience. It is recommended to spend several slides on a general introduction, and to make at least the first half of the seminar understandable for non-specialists. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:15 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up the slideshow. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
