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.

Apr 2 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The WYO Theater will host a production of “A Year with Frog and Toad” on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, the jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody. Part vaudeville and part make-believe, “A Year with Frog and Toad” tells the story of a friendship that endures.

This whimsical show follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad — through four fun-filled seasons. 

Tickets cost $17 for adults, $10 for students and $12.50 for seniors and military members. Tickets can be purchased online at wyotheater.com, at the theater’s box office or by phone at 672-9084.

The WYO Theater is located at 42 N. Main St. in downtown Sheridan.

AAUW organizing Unequal Pay Day bake sale @ Sheridan College
Apr 4 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

SHERIDAN — American Association of University Women will conduct a bake sale April 4 at Sheridan College, Sheridan Stationery, Books and Gallery and downtown Sheridan.

April 4 marks Unequal Pay Day by the AAUW. Unequal Pay Day symbolizes the day when women’s pay finally “catches up” to men’s pay from the previous year. 

The bake sale will be held at several locations, and will provide home-baked goods provided by AAUW members. For men, the cost for each item will be $1 per item, while women, who lag behind in wages, will pay Wyoming’s average pay gap of $.69 per item.

The sale will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at all three venues. This event is to make people aware of the disparity of wages for the many women who earn less for working the same jobs as men. People who support this effort are asked to wear red to symbolize that women are still in the red financially.

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.
