John F. Rawls, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Cell Biology & Physiology, Microbiology & Immunology to present "Mechanisms underlying microbial and tissue-specific regulation of intestinal epithelial gene transcription" at Thursday, May 2, 2013 CGIBD Research Seminar Series. Dr. Rawls laboratory's research program is focused on understanding how environmental factors such as the intestinal microbiota and diet interact with host genome-encoded processes to influence host physiology. Physiologic responses in eukaryotic cells are often mediated by changes in gene transcription that are specific to the cell type and the stimulus. In this seminar, He will present his recent progress towards defining cis-regulatory DNA sequences in the zebrafish and mouse genome that could mediate transcriptional responses to the microbiota in the intestinal epithelium. Seminar starts at 4:30 pm in the 1st floor auditorium of the Bioinformatics Building. Everyone is welcome to attend.
