Saturday September 22, 2012 19:30 - 20:00 @ Auditorium    The Dinucleotide CG as a Genomic Signalling Module Abstract:  The DNA sequence 5'CG (CpG) is unusual in several respects. It is self-complementary and can exist in three chemical forms depending on the modification status of its cytosine moiety. To understand the functional significance of the CpG dinucleotide, we study proteins that bind either its methylated or... Read More →

Saturday September 22, 2012 19:00 - 19:30 @ Auditorium    Non-coding RNA controls epigenetic processes Abstract: Constitutive heterochromatin exerts a crucial function in maintaining genomic stability. I will talk about the molecular mechanisms that direct epigenetic silencing of rRNA genes, focussing on the role of the chromatin remodeling complex NoRC in targeting chromatin modifying enzymes to the rDNA promoter...

Saturday September 22, 2012 18:30 - 19:00 @ Auditorium    Mapping genome-wide nucleosome dynamics Abstract: Eukaryotic gene expression occurs in the context of chromatin, and maintaining a region accessible to DNA-binding proteins for transcriptional regulation requires active processes that mobilize nucleosomes. Our approach to studying these processes has been to map nucleosome dynamics genome-wide, and we have... Read More →
