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 →

Sunday September 23, 2012 9:30 - 10:00 @ Auditorium    Regulation of mRNA expression by miRNAs and RNA-binding proteins Abstract: The focus of our research is the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. In particular, we study three specific aspects of this regulation: the mechanisms of miRNA-mediated gene silencing, mRNA quality control and degradation, as well... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 10:00 - 10:30 @ Auditorium   Following Single mRNAs from Birth to Death in Living Cells Abstract: Live cell imaging has been instrumental in analyzing the dynamic properties of RNA. New technologies in optical microscopy and fluorescent probe development have been pushing the envelope of our analysis capabilities. We have been dedicated to developing and implementing these technologies to... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 9:00 - 9:30 @ Auditorium    Lighting up RNA interactions in living cells Abstract: In vivo analyses of RNA processing are impeded by two major problems: 1) The kinetics of the process must generally be inferred from steady-state levels of intermediates, so rapid processing events are essentially invisible, particularly if they occur cotranscriptionally. 2) The structures of RNA-protein...
