Presentation Title: Searching for Signals in Sequences


DNA is an information carrying molecule, encoding not only for the RNAs and proteins that perform the functions necessary for cellular and organismal viability, but also encoding the instructions for when, where and under what conditions those functional molecules are expressed. Most of my career has been devoted to studying the signals, cis-regulatory elements, in DNA and RNA that controls various aspects of gene expression. This talk will provide some background on the nature of the signals we seek, some history of approaches to find them, how current technology facilitates the search and where I think the field is headed.
