  • Seminar — Dr. Yilian Ding —  In vivo RNA structure profiling: a transformative platform reveals a new way to regulate gene expression
    Starts: 9:00 am
    Ends: January 16, 2015 - 10:00 am
    Location: GBSF 4202
    Description: Part of the series of seminars by the Genome Center Structural and Functional Genomics Focus Group. ). Dr. Yiliang Ding from the John Innes Center (norwich, UK) will talk about experimentally probing RNA structure in the context of understanding gene expression. This talk is introductory to her field of interest, so not too technical.

    ## Abstract ##
    Regulation of RNA levels has garnered much attention in recent years because of its direct and rapid regulation of protein levels. RNA structure plays critical roles in this gene regulation. However, determining RNA structure in vivo has been very challenging. In most cases, RNA structures are inferred from in vitro synthesized RNAs or from in silico predictions. Lack of genome-wide in vivo RNA structural data also limits our understanding of how RNAs fold and regulate gene expression globally in vivo. Recently, we developed a transformative platform for profiling in vivo RNA structures at the transcriptome scale. Our genome-wide study reveals native RNA structural features that relate to numerous biological processes, including translation initiation and regulation, alternative polyadenylation, alternative splicing, and miRNA silencing. Additionally, biological function analysis shows that stress-response mRNAs, such as temperature response, heavy metal response, and osmotic stress, tend to be more flexible to fold, in comparison to cell maintenance mRNAs. These findings not only open up new avenues for understanding gene regulation but also provide new approaches for engineering RNAs and developing biosensors in response to various stress conditions such as RNA thermometers.


    Coffee and pastries will be provided.
