Colloquium: Yi Tang

Dr. Tang's research lab is interested in natural product biosynthesis and biocatalysis. In the natural product area, they are interested in elucidating biosynthetic pathways of polyketides, nonribosomal peptides and related compounds. Their goal is to understand the biochemical and structural basis of different enzymes encoded in these pathways. In particular, they are studying the biosynthesis of aromatic polyketides from Streptomyces and iteratively biosynthesized compounds from filamentous fungi.

"Film screening of "Saving Mes Aynak" with Introduction by Producer, David Huffman"

Brent Huffman

Medill - Northwestern University

Saving Mes Aynak is a documentary chronicling the fight to save a 2,000-year-old archaeology site in Afghanistan threatened by a Chinese copper mine. Mes Aynak, located in volatile Logar province, is comprised of an ancient 500,000 square meter Buddhist city on top of an even older Bronze age site. Discoveries at the site have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and the history of Buddhism itself.
