Abstract

Time: 7:00am (PDT),  10:00am (EDT), 4:00pm (CEST)
 
Development and evolution are controlled, to a large degree, by regions of genomic DNA called enhancers that encode binding sites for transcription factor proteins. The binding of activators and repressors increases and reduces gene expression levels, respectively, but it is not understood how combinations of activators and repressors generate precise patterns of transcription during development. Towards this aim, we have developed novel methods to dissect transcriptional enhancers to understand their role in determining patterns of gene expression in the fruit fly, a classic model system (Fuqua et al., Nature 2020). I will discuss our ongoing research focused on developmental networks using our high-throughput robotics and multiomics combined with synthetic biology.
 
Learning Objectives
  • What are transcriptional enhancers?
  • Why do changes in enhancers drive animal evolution and disease?
  • How can we understand enhancers and control them using synthetic biology?
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
