Genome regulation and the epigenome
2 December, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Our DNA contains tens of thousands of individual genes that encode vital information responsible for the biological activities necessary for life. Most tissues in our body carry out very specialized processes which ultimately require that specific subsets of genes are used in the right place and at the right time.
Join Professor Klose to learn more about his research focussed on understanding how chromatin based and epigenetic mechanisms are exploited to ensure proper gene regulation.
The Francis Crick Lecture is given annually in any field in the biological sciences. Professor Rob Klose was awarded the 2015 Francis Crick Lecture for his research to understand how chromatin-based and epigenetic processes contribute to gene regulation.
