Live Q&A with USU's Spider Silk Lab

Flexible, lightweight, strong, biocompatible, and water-resistant. A material with all of these properties can mean life-changing medical devices, protective equipment, and even building materials. But who came up with this super product? Spiders! Can you imagine trying to farm spiders, which eat each other and yield relatively small quantities of silk? This is where spider silk expert, Justin Jones, comes in. Join us for a live Q&A with this USU researcher and professor to learn about how his lab is creating synthetic spider silk through the use of transgenic goats, bacteria, alfalfa, and even silkworms! Dr. Justin A. Jones is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at Utah State University. Dr. Jones received his Ph.D. degree in biology from Utah State University in 2015. He has worked with spider silk and its recombinant forms since 1998 while attending the University of Wyoming.

This event is part of Antelope Island Spider Fest 2021! Join us through Facebook live on the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter Facebook page. Facebook Live Link: https://fb.me/e/1dDlmefbY

Utah has experienced several of the largest fires in state history in the past few years, leaving large scars in our forests and degrading air quality, fish habitat, and water resources. Why is the fire regime changing and what is it expected to look like in the future? What are the implications for Utah’s water? Patrick Belmont will explore these questions and discuss ways we could better manage our forests, fires, fish, and water resources to ensure better outcomes in the future. Patrick Belmont is a Professor and Head of the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. His research spans many disciplines...hydrology, ecology, fire science, erosion and climatology, in order to study watersheds as integrated systems. And he is constantly working to make science useful for policy and management.
