Ivaylo visited Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in Feb. 2018 and gave a talk “DNA sculpting as a strategy for base extrusion and damage selection by the repair glycosylase TDG” at the Advanced Light Source synchrotron facility.
Ivaylo gave a talk “DNA sculpting as a strategy for base extrusion and damage selection by the repair glycosylase TDG” at the 3rd DNA Replication/Repair Structures and Cancer Conference in Cancun Mexico.
Ivaylo attended the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society and presented our new findings on the transcription initiation by RNA polymerase I.
Ivaylo attended the 2018 Keystone Symposium “Cryo-EM from Cells to Molecules: Multi-Scale Visualization of Biological Systems” and presented our new findings on the transcription initiation by RNA polymerase I.
Group members recently traveled to Charlotte, NC to present at the 2017 Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society. Many thanks to all who presented! (Kathleen Carter, Chunli Yan and Tom Dodd)
Congratulations to Bernard Scott who successfully defended his Masters thesis in June 2017! He has accepted an offer of admission to the Ph.D. program at the University of Utah and will continue doing research albeit in an experimental lab. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
Congratulation to Dr. Chunli Yan who published a new paper on combining computational modeling and Cryo-electron microscopy to uncover the mechanisms of transcription initiation.
