  Honors Program:   Transcription of the Genome: from Molecular Movies to Regulatory Systems --- "Our laboratory uses integrated structural biology to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of gene transcription. We also apply a combination of functional genomics and computational biology to investigate the principles of genomic regulation and RNA metabolism in cells. In my presentation I will first present our current view of the mechanism of RNA polymerase II transcription based on the most recent data from cryo-electron microscopy and other structural biology approaches. I will then discuss how a combination of functional genomics techniques can be used to globally investigate mRNA synthesis, processing and degradation in yeast and human cells. In particular, we have developed TT-Seq (transient transcriptome sequencing), a method that can map short-lived RNAs such as enhancer RNAs, and provide RNA synthesis and degradation rates. TT-Seq further uncovers transcription termination sites and can also be used to follow changes in gene expression programs during differentiation and transcription responses at very high temporal resolution and with great sensitivity." , Patrick Cramer, PhD Director Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry Gottingen, Germany Department of Moleclar Biology , 4:00 PM, Alumni Hall B - Contact Josephine Markiewicz at 263-3815 or at Josephine.Markiewicz@nyumc.org
