Dr. Stefan Ameres Discusses Thiol-linked Alkylation for the Metabolic Sequencing of RNA in Informative Webinar

Share Article

In this webinar, which LabRoots together with Lexogen will host on November 28, participants will learn about a new method thiol(SH)-linked alkylation for the metabolic sequencing of RNA (SLAMseq), an orthogonal-chemistry-based RNA sequencing technology that detects 4-thiouridine (s4U) incorporation in RNA species at single-nucleotide resolution.

Stefan L. Ameres, PhD Group Leader, Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA), Vienna, Austria

Gene expression profiling by high-throughput sequencing reveals qualitative and quantitative changes in RNA species at steady state but obscures the intracellular dynamics of RNA transcription, processing and decay. The team at Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) in Vienna, Austria has developed SLAMseq protocol, which has been commercialized by Lexogen.

In this webinar, participants will discover how SLAMseq in combination with well-established metabolic RNA labeling protocols and coupled to standard, low-input, high-throughput RNA sequencing methods, enabled rapid access to RNA-polymerase-II-dependent gene expression dynamics in the context of total RNA.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. Stefan L. Ameres, the group leader at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology in Vienna and the inventor of the SLAMseq method.

Dr. Ameres earned his master's degree in biology at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg. He went on to earn a doctorate from the University of Vienna, where he performed the first in-depth enzymatic characterization of the human RNA interference effector complex. Currently, his lab investigates the mechanism and biology of post-transcriptional gene regulation, supported by the European research council through an ERC Starting Grant.

LabRoots will host the event on November 28, 2017, beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST, 10:00 a.m. EST, 4:00 p.m. CET. To learn more about this event, the speaker or to register for free, click here.
