JOHN NOTO, CASEY SCHMIDT AND GREG MATERA PUBLISH IN “RNA BIOLOGY”

Congratulations to PhD students John Noto and Casey Schmidt and faculty member Greg Matera for their publication in RNA Biology entitled “Engineering and expressing circular RNAs via tRNA splicing.” In this paper, they focus on the biogenesis of tRNA intronic circular RNAs (tricRNAs) in archaea and animals, and detail their use as research tools for orthogonal, directed circRNA expression in vivo. [Noto JJ, Schmidt CA, Matera AG.RNA Biol. 2017 Apr 12:0. doi: 10.1080/15476286.2017.1317911. [Epub ahead of print]PMID:  28402213]   READ MORE >>


DANIEL MCKAY’S LAB PUBLISHES PAPER IN “GENES AND DEVELOPMENT”

Congratulations to the Daniel McKay lab (Biology, Genetics, Integrative Program for Biological and Genome Sciences) for their manuscript “Hormone-dependent control of developmental timing through regulation of chromatin accessibility”, recently published in the journal Genes & Development. The work described in the paper provides new insight into how information regulating gene expression is accessed by transcription factors to drive developing tissues forward in time. GMB graduate students Chris Uyehara, Spencer Nystrom, and Matt Niederhuber were all authors on the paper. READ MORE >>   READ OUTLOOK ARTICLE >> READ UNC SCHOOL OF MEDICINE STORY >>


JIYUE HUANG’S PAPER APPEARS IN “PLOS GENETICS”

Jiyue Huang, a postdoctoral associate in Gregory Copenhaver’s lab, has published a collaborative PLOS Genetics paper with colleagues at Fudan University in Shanghai, China. The article provides evidence that the three proteins RAD51, RAD51C and XRCC3 interact to facilitate meiotic recombination in plants. READ THE ARTICLE >>
