Jörg Vogel "An RNA perspective on bad microbes and their hosts"
This talk will discuss emerging concepts of gene regulation by small noncoding RNAs in pathogenic bacteria; show how RNA deep sequencing technology has opened new avenues for the global discovery and functional study of diverse functional small RNAs in many bacterial species; introduce a new Dual RNA-seq approach which aims to take the study of host-pathogen interactions a major step further and enable us to analyse gene expression changes in both pathogen and host simultaneously.
The "HZI Colloquium" is a scientific lecture series at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, organized to host internationally renowned experts from the field of infection research. Invited guest speakers present their current research activities to a scientific audience. The presentation is followed by an open discussion.
We cordially invite interested scientists to take part in this colloquium.
The HZI Colloquium takes place on Wednesdays, 5.15 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. in the Forum, X0.13.
