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
    Five Points lecture series bring leading scientists from around the world for an in-depth discussion of their work with students, researchers and clinicians from the New York Genome Center, its member institutions, and others in the medical/scientific community. While Five Points lectures are free and open to the general public, these lectures are most beneficial to scientists, clinicians and researchers who wish to accelerate their research through the use of DNA sequencing technology and bioinformatics. Five Points lectures often frame five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of Q&A, and 30 minutes of networking over hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These afternoon events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 4 pm.

    EVENING TALKS
    The New York Genome Center’s Evening Talks events feature distinguished experts from around the world sharing genomic insights and research. They are intended to showcase and explain high science to the non-scientific community. Speakers present the latest research findings and explain its implication for helping improve clinical care for a wide array of serious diseases. The lecture is followed by a lively question-and-answer session and a post-event reception of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These popular free public events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 6:30 pm. The Evening Talks Series is sponsored by The New York Community Trust – Pyewacket Fund.
