Telomere and telomerase evolution in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
posterposted on 20.04.2020 by Melissa Mefford
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
This project aims to investigate the evolution of telomeres (by creating yeast with circularized versions of their linear chromosomes) and telomerase (by screening for gain-of-function alleles of the telomerase RNA gene).
