presents, "The role of noncoding RNAs in cancer: shedding light on the transcriptomic dark matter" Hosted by: Dr. Shamim Mollah HYBRID Zoom attendee webinar link:https://wustl-hipaa.zoom.us/j/94367220300 In-person:  Couch Building, 6001B Seminar abstract: Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) direct a remarkable number of diverse functions in development and disease through their regulation of transcription, RNA processing, and translation. Leading the charge in the RNA revolution is a class of ncRNAs that are synthesized at active enhancers, called enhancer RNAs (eRNAs). While eRNAs have become…

SPECIAL SEMINAR, HYBRID In-person: Couch Building, 6001B conference room Zoom webinar attendee link: https://wustl-hipaa.zoom.us/j/94367220300 “New sequencing technology, new data analytic methods and new insights in transcriptomics and epigenetics” Seminar abstract:  Third Generation Sequencing/TGS (i.e., Oxford Nanopore Technologies/ONT and Pacific Biosciences/PacBio) can generate single-molecule long reads, ranging from a few kb to million bp. These data have been demonstrated very powerful to address many complex biomedical problems that remained unsolved by short reads. For example, the extensive applications of TGS data…

presents, “RNA Editing and Innate Immunity” Hosted by: Dr. Rob Mitra Hybrid Zoom attendee webinar link: https://wustl-hipaa.zoom.us/j/94367220300 In-person:  Couch 6001B Seminar abstract:  To avoid aberrant innate immunity, endogenous double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) must be edited by ADAR1, suppressing cytosolic MDA5-mediated dsRNA sensing. Mice without RNA editing by ADAR1 are embryonic lethal, but live to full life span upon MDA5 removal. In humans, ADAR1 loss-of-function and MDA5 gain-of-function mutations lead to rare autoimmune diseases. In this talk, I will discuss our recent…
