Lecture to focus on genomics revolution @ Sheridan College Science Museum/Mohns Center.
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Vikram Chhatre will give a lecture on “The Genomics Revolution” on Wednesday, April 5, at 7 p.m. at the Sheridan College Science Museum/Mohns Center.

The discovery of polymerase chain reaction ushered in a new era of biological research by instantly providing tools to study organisms at unprecedented depths. In the ensuing decades, the advent of affordable and high throughput DNA sequencing technology has revolutionized a large number of biological disciplines.  

This genomic revolution aided by informatics tools has impacted our lives in a multitude of ways. Chhatre will discuss examples of the application of various genomic technologies in medicine, mitigation of global climate change, understanding organismal evolution and designing strategies for ecosystem conservation.  

Chhatre grew up in India fascinated by the natural world and with a curiosity to understand what makes it work. Eventually narrowing down his focus to long-living forest trees, he adopted population genomics and bioinformatics tools to understand how they adapt to their environment.  

The event is free and open to the public.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

Library to host program on railroad history @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
May 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library, railroad expert and historian James Ehernberger will present an educational program on the history of railroads in northeast Wyoming.

Railroad construction during the 1880s was greater in the West than any other decade in the history of our country. In 1887, the first Burlington line reached Wyoming and the Grand Island and Northern Wyoming Railroad built westward in 1890 to Moorcroft, in 1891 to Gillette and to Sheridan on Nov. 26, 1892. In 1893 and 1894, the line was completed northward to a connection with the Northern Pacific for service into Billings.

The livestock trade was one of the great revenue sources for railroads during that time. Herds of Texas Longhorn cattle were driven north and pastured on the rich Wyoming grasslands, with railroads playing a vital role in this movement of livestock.

Ehernberger, a Cheyenne resident since 1950, has been researching Wyoming railroad history for nearly 60 years. He worked for Union Pacific railroad for 34 years and has authored or co-authored more than 50 books. He has also been featured in numerous magazine articles, as well as several PBS presentations.

The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.

Tim Slater, the Wyoming Excellence in Higher Education Endowed Chair in Science Education at the University of Wyoming, has traveled into deeply rural Africa to catch a glimpse of the disappearing sun. In May, he will travel across Wyoming to visit schools, public libraries and community centers to build awareness, generate excitement and help children, parents, teachers and community leaders to prepare for the upcoming total eclipse of the sun.

Slater is scheduled to speak about the nature of eclipses in the Sheridan area Monday, including visiting with Sheridan High School students and teachers at 1:45 p.m., and giving a public talk from 6-7:30 p.m. at Sheridan College.

In his lectures, Slater describes how to safely observe the Aug. 21 eclipse of the sun and uses scientific digital visualization simulations to explain why scientists from all over the world are coming to Wyoming to observe this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Visible from much of Wyoming and known as the Great North American Solar Eclipse, this rarely visible sky event occurs midday Aug. 21.
