Ruby Yu, PhD
The human genome is vast, and the majority of it does not actually encode genes. Non-coding regions, once referred to as “junk DNA,” are now known to play critical roles in the regulation of gene activity. In this seminar, Ruby Yu from the Marson Lab will describe her work investigating the effect of mutations in non-coding regions on the function of immune cells.
Yu completed her PhD at Harvard University, investigating mechanisms of epigenetic gene silencing in yeast. As a scientist in the Marson Lab, she is studying how genetic mutations in noncoding DNA affect gene expression and T cell function.
A monthly tradition for over 25 years, Science for Admin is a forum for Gladstone scientists to share their latest research with their administrative colleagues.
