Talk Title: New insights of RNA editing regulation

 

Talk Abstract: Our work focuses on A-to-I RNA editing catalyzed by ADAR enzymes. We and others have significantly expanded the RNA editomes in human, mice, flies, and other species. Our recent interests aim to understand how RNA editing is regulated both in cis and in trans, as well as to identify functionally important RNA editing events. In this talk, Dr. Li will focus on his lab’s recent efforts towards systematic understanding of the dynamic regulation of RNA editing.

 

Biography: Jin Billy Li, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Genetics at Stanford University. He received his undergraduate degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing and received his graduate degree in Genetics from Washington University in St. Louis. His postdoctoral training with Professor George Church at Harvard Medical School focused on developing genomic technologies. His laboratory at Stanford focuses on RNA editing studies using interdisciplinary approaches ranging from molecular genetics, genomics, biochemistry, cell biology, neurobiology, evolutionary biology, computational biology, to technology development.

    FIVE POINTS

    • Let us go on again, and plunge into the Five Points. — Charles Dickens, 1842

      Named for an early Manhattan crossroads – remembered as a rowdy but cosmopolitan gathering place, and as a nexus for progress in public health – the Five Points Lectures bring outstanding scientists from near and far, to discuss their work in technical detail* with researchers and clinicians from institutions served by NYGC, in order to strengthen our grasp of key biological questions and methods. Speakers present fresh and intriguing findings, along with thoughtful views on their respective fields, in full scientific depth. Talks last roughly 45 minutes — often framing five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of open Q&A, and 30 minutes of networking.
