EEB Virtual Seminar: Genomic approaches into regulatory genetic variation
Frank Albert, University of Minnesota, Assistant Professor
Individual genomes carry many DNA sequence variants that alter gene expression. This regulatory variation shapes phenotypic traits within species and can fuel evolutionary change. My laboratory uses the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to answer fundamental questions about regulatory variation. In this seminar, I will present our recent results on the distribution of regulatory variation across the genome, the identity of causal DNA nucleotides that act in cis and in trans, and the genetic basis of variation in protein versus mRNA abundance.
