Cell Biology Center Colloquium 0024
- Prof. James E. Haber
(Director of Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, Brandeis University, USA)
- Stability and instability in the repair of a broken chromosome
- The ability to synchronously induce a defined double-strand break (DSB) in budding yeast has made it possible to follow the kinetics of repair by homologous recombination in real time and to identify the roles of many recombination and replication proteins. Repair by gene conversion or by break-induced replication is efficient, but is surprisingly error-prone compared to replication of the same sequences. New insights into repair mechanisms will be discussed.
There will be a seminar by Prof. James E. Haber (Director of Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, Brandeis University, USA), who is working on homologous recombination and DNA double strand break repair in budding yeast. He is staying at Tokyo Tech until early November as a specially-appointed professor of IIR-WRHI. You are welcome to attend. See also the attached pdf.
