Mohamed gave an oral presentation at the Gordon Research Symposium on his recent CRISPR-Cas10 research and we both were able to hike beautiful western Maine.
Mohamed was chosen to give an oral presentation at the 2019 SEC meeting in Atlanta. He presented results from his recent publication in RNA on the synthesis and regulation of cyclic oligoadenylates by Cas10. Sebastian and Josh presented a poster of recent work on erythromycin resistance methyltransferases and Michael presented a poster of his recent publication in Biochemistry. Congratulations to all. You earned that Waffle House breakfast.
Georgette Munezero and Athina Aminor of Spring Hill College are performing summer research on erythromycin resistance methyltransferase structure and mechanism with the Dunkle Research Group.
Jack attended RNA 2018, the annual meeting of the RNA Society at the University of California at Berkeley to present a poster, co-authored by Sebastian, Rachel and Josh on the Dunkle Research Group's erythromycin resistance methyltransferase research.
The University of Alabama News Center has published an article on the erythromycin resistance methyltransferase research being done by the UA (Dunkle Group) and Spring Hill College (Schoeffler Group) team. Link: Grasping Antibiotic Resistance Goal of UA, Spring Hill College Project.
The Dunkle Research Group is now funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to pursue structure and mechanism studies of rRNA methyltransferases conferring antibiotic resistance.
Dr. Allyn Schoeffler and student, Victoria Shepard, of Spring Hill College visited UA to perform collaborative research. Dr. Schoeffler also presented a seminar on advanced Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) studies of bio-molecules.
Jack presented a poster, co-authored with Josh Halliday and Sebastian Rowe, titled "Determining the role of RNA sequence and structure in the specificity of rRNA methyltransferases" at the Gordon Research Conference on Nucleic Acids at the University of New England.
