BioE Seminar: Jeremy Gunawardena, Ph.D.
Jeremy Gunawardena, Ph.D. Associate Professor Department of Systems Biology Harvard Medical School “Beyond the bacterial paradigm in gene regulation” ABSTRACT: There are striking differences between bacterial and eukaryotic genomes. Bacterial genes typically have one or two transcription factors (TFs) binding at a few promoter-proximal sites with strong motifs and regulation takes place in the absence of energy expenditure. In contrast, eukaryotic genes often have multiple TFs binding with weak motifs at numerous, widely-distributed sites and regulation takes place while energy is...
