Getting under the hood: unpicking DNA-Protein interactions one molecule at a time
Speaker:Mark Leake (Departments of Physics and Biology University of York/UK)
Abstract:Many of the interactions of proteins with DNA have a significant influence on its subsequent role inside living cells, such as DNA replication, transcription and gene regulation. I will discuss some of our insights in this area, stemming from a suite of highly interdisciplinary tools in vitro, in silico and in vivo, that could, perhaps, be thought of as emerging from the growing toolkit of ‘next generation biophysics’. This powerful combinatorial approach has enabled us to really get under the hood and explore the machinery associated DNA-protein interactions at a level of single, functional molecules.
