Tuesday Night Seminar: Finn Werner
We cordially invite you to Finn Werner's talk “Engines of transcription - from volcanic vents to global food security”. The talk will take place in Building D15, room 01.002-004.
Prof Finn Werner - “Engines of transcription - from volcanic vents to global food security”
Finn Werner’s research group focuses on the archaeal RNA polymerases (RNAPs), a biochemically tractable model system for eukaryotic RNAPII. His lab makes use of a recombinant transcription system that allows to introduce mutations, chemically reactive or fluorescent probes into the RNAP and test the resulting RNAP variants in a range of sophisticated biochemical and biophysical assays. This functional dissection strategy of RNAP illuminates the function of the RNAP and its interplay with transcription factors - ultimately explaining gene expression at the atomic level.
