RNA Seminar: Dina Grohmann
We cordially invite you to Dina Grohmann's talk "The importance of molecular plasticity and rare states in RNA biology". The talk will take place in Building D15, room 01.002-004 at 5pm.
Prof Dr Dina Grohmann - "The importance of molecular plasticity and rare states in RNA biology"
Dina Grohmann’s lab strives to identify and describe biological heterogeneity and diversity on the organismic and molecular level and aims to understand how biological heterogeneity drives the function of molecular machineries. On the organismic level, Dina Grohmann and her team are committed to expand their understanding of microbial diversity on earth. Having isolated more than 1.000 archaeal strains from all over the world over the last three decades, the Grohmann lab is especially intrigued by organisms from the third domain of life, Archaea. In addition, Dina Grohmann and her team also look on the evolutionary journey of fundamental biological machineries and molecular processes that are present in all living cells. Here, the scientists focus on processes along the gene expression pathway including the regulation of gene expression at the transcriptional (transcription factors and transcription machinery) and post-transcriptional level (RNA processing, RNA-guided interference and archaeal Sm like proteins) as well as prokaryotic defence system (CRISPR-Cas and prokaroytic Argonaute).
