Seminar: Making and Breaking of RNA in Human Nuclei

2013-06-16: Torben Heick, Centre for mRNP Biogenesis and Metabolism; Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University.

The Seminar will take place 11.15-12.00 at University of Copen­ha­gen, in room A2-84.01, Building 2-84, Thorvaldsensvej 40, ground floor, 1870 Frederiksberg C

In recent years unorthodox transcription from within genic- and intergenic regions has been demonstrated to occur at an unexpected level. In this talk, I will describe our efforts to identify such unconventional human RNAs and to unravel mechanisms of their turn-over. These efforts have delineated mechanisms of promoter directionality and promise to aid in the discovery of new functional non-coding RNA.
