CBE Seminar: “Probing Protein Interactions from Molecular to Cellular Scales with Microscale Technologies”

February 24 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract Biological molecules rarely act alone. For example, in many pediatric cancers, a chromosomal rearrangement results in a fusion protein with altered DNA and protein interactions that yield proliferative and aggressively metastatic cell subpopulations. In this talk, I will describe quantification of molecular interaction properties relevant to fusion oncoprotein biology using microscale tools with distinct […]
