BMBDG Seminars: PhD Exit Seminars – Nicolas Coutin and John Young

“Method Development for High Throughput Biology,” by Nicolas Coutin, doctoral candidate, Corey Nislow Lab, UBC Abstract: Living things are made from thousands of individual, interacting pieces. To understand these systems, we will need to study many or all the pieces at once. To study biology this way, we will need tools that consider the whole […]

BMBDG Seminar – Steven Rutherford – Cancelled

Cancelled: “New modalities for interfering with outer membrane biogenesis in Gram-negative bacteria,”  by Steven Rutherford, Senior Scientist, Infectious Diseases, Genentech. Multi-drug resistant bacteria are a global health threat and new strategies are needed to combat them. However, the discovery of novel antibiotics to treat infections by Gram-negative bacteria has been thwarted by the outer membrane, […]

“Genome folding in development, ” by Alistair Boettiger, Assistant Professor, Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Developmental Biology, Member of Stanford Bio-X, Member of Stanford Biophysics, Stanford University. Establishment of different cell types during development requires precise interactions between genes and distal regulatory elements. However, our understanding of what these interactions look like in three […]

Seminar Series – Dr. Ana Fiszbein

“Dynamic determinants for co-transcriptional gene regulation,” by Dr. Ana Fiszbien, Department of Biology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The architecture of mammalian genes enables the production of multiple transcripts that greatly expand the coding capacity of our genomes. Impacts of RNA processing on the stability of RNAs are known, but effects on transcription are less understood. […]
