MBTG Seminar: "CryoEM and CryoET Automation: Where are we now and what do we still need?"

Seminar | October 7 | 4-5 p.m. | 106 Stanley Hall

 Bridget Carragher, New York Structural Biology Center

 College of Chemistry

The dramatic improvements in the progress of cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM) and cryo electron tomography (cryoET) over the last five years has been accompanied by the adoption of a high level of automation. However, there are several automation challenges that remain to be addressed in the areas of specimen preparation, image acquisition, and analysis. In specimen preparation we need to...   More >

Allostery and genetic information integration

Seminar | October 21 | 4-5 p.m. | 106 Stanley Hall

 Jeremy Gunawardena, Harvard Medical School

 College of Chemistry

I will describe recent results which show that allosteric conformational ensembles of sufficient
complexity can implement any form of information integration that is achievable without energy
expenditure. I will discuss to what extent this mechanism may account for the information processing which occurs during eukaryotic gene regulation, in which many small packets of information must be...   More >

The spindle checkpoint ensures the fidelity of chromosome segregation during mitosis and guards against aneuploidy. Several checkpoint proteins have a moonlighting function to control insulin signaling in interphase. Recent studies on the crosstalk between the cell division module and insulin signaling will be discussed.
