Frontiers in Science and Technology: Using Alternative Splicing to Make Neurons from Stem Cells

UC San Diego Assistant Professor Gene Yeo will explain how new genomic tools his lab in UCSD’s Cellular and Molecular Medicine Department are being used to better understand neurodegenerative disease, and to help advance stem cell research. Yeo’s work has focused on how genes produce copies of pre-mRNA, which then undergo a modification process called splicing. Online registration is here.
