Title: "Translation dynamics of single mRNAs in live cells"
Bin Wu, PhD
Research Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy & Structural Biology
Bin Wu is currently a research assistant professor in Dr. Robert Singer's Lab in Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Bin studies the regulation of gene expression by single molecule imaging and spectroscopy of RNA in live cells. Bin will start his new lab at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine this summer.

Title: “Genome Architecture Mapping: spatial approach to map chromatin contacts”
Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology, Berlin, Germany
Ana Pombo’s lab studies 3D folding of chromatin and mechanisms of RNA polymerase II regulation in ES and neuronal cells.
Ana was a pioneer in the study of transcription factories in the 1990s, during her PhD at Peter Cook’s lab in Oxford. She started her lab in 2000 at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, in London, UK, and they were the first to quantify interchromosomal contacts in human lymphocytes using novel imaging approaches and to identify poised RNA polymerase II complexes at mammalian Polycomb domains.
Ana’s webinar is going to discuss a novel methodology to map chromatin contacts without ligation, which provides a novel view on chromatin contacts orthogonal to 3C-based and imaging methods.
