Cosy Science presents: Origins of the nucleus- the mothership of our genome
The cell nucleus is the ‘mothership’ that encloses, tethers, protects and supports the human genome. How did this complex, elegant and dynamic architecture evolve? We will ‘paint a picture’ of nuclear structure, and talk about how a few simple proteins set our single-celled ancestors on an amazing evolutionary journey. Katherine L. Wilson studied microbiology in Seattle (BS, University of Washington), biochemistry and genetics in San Francisco (PhD, UCSF) and cell biology in San Diego (UCSD) before joining the faculty at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, where she is Professo...
