The Bigger Picture

Recently, NCBS hosted a talk by a researcher who is asking a very different set of questions about illness, health and their relationship to something that we might not immediately see - information and communication.  The public lecture, “Health and Communication Inequalities in the 21st Century: Observations from the Field” focused on how communication and access to information can play a critical role in promoting health and preventing disease.

Can you describe some highlights from your current research for me?

We study the evolution of eukaryotic cells. There are two kinds of cells on the planet: prokaryotes, such as morphologically simple bacteria and archaea, and then the relatively more complex eukaryotes - for example plant and animal cells, amoeba, paramecium, and so on. Eukaryotes have enclosed nuclei and compartmentalized organelles, which prokaryotes lack.  Usually when you see such a big jump in complexity you expect to find intermediate forms, for example in the fossil record or in living organisms.  The mystery is that there are no intermediate eukaryotes.

The phrase "intellectual property" is often used in the Indian media as synonymous with "patents". In fact, patents are only one form of intellectual property. Other forms of intellectual property include trademarks, copyright, design rights, plant variety protection, etc. Of these, trademarks are used in business for the purpose of distinguishing the goods or services of one person from those of others.
