"The talk will introduce the techniques that can be used to investigate the assembly and function of ribonucleoprotein complexes (RNPs). This includes iCLIP, a method combining multi-step biochemistry and computational biology to obtain a comprehensive map of protein-RNA interactions within cells. I will present our study of paraspeckles, a large RNP that behaves like a liquid droplet inside cell's nucleus and affects the exit of stem cells from pluripotency. I will also discuss the forces that drive the regulation of RNAs, and how faulty RNPs might lead to conditions affecting the nervous system, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis."

Vljudno vabljeni! Seminar bo potekal v angleškem jeziku. / You are cordially invited to attend this lecture, which will be delivered in English.
