Cancelled - CAS Dean's Scholars Lecture: Andreas Hochwagen
Silver Center, Room 101A
100 Washington Sq East
Speaker: Andreas Hochwagen, Associate Professor of Biology
Although most genes are present in two parental copies, some are repeated dozens or even hundreds of times. This lecture explores the reasons for this copy-number increase, both in healthy individuals and in disease. It also presents research indicating cells can sometimes determine gene copy number and regenerate copies if numbers get too low.
