Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
The ability to sequence genomes has far outstripped approaches for deciphering the information they encode. There are now a suite of applications based on ribosome profiling (deep sequencing of ribosome protected fragments) that dramatically expand our ability to follow translation in vivo.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Jonathan Weissman, an Investigator with the University of California-San Francisco and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, who will present recent applications of their ribosome profiling approach.
Dr. Nicholas Ingolia, Principal Investigator at Carnegie Institution for Science, will provide his insight on the global profiling of translational control in embryonic stem cell differentiation and mTOR inhibition.
Dr. Scott Kuersten, Staff Scientist at Epicentre, an Illumina Company, will discuss ribosome footprinting using size exclusion chromatography.
A Q&A session with the audience will follow the main presentation.
