Title of the talk:
RNA stabilization and modifications in hyperthermophilic archaea
Analyses of the RNA metabolism of hyperthermophilic archaea highlight the efficiency of regulatory RNAs and RNA-guided processes at extreme temperatures. Hyperthermophilic organisms must overcome the intrinsic thermolability of RNAs. Elevated levels of RNA modifications and structured GC-rich regions are observed for many universal noncoding RNA families. Here, I will present our analyses of tRNA and rRNA modifications and discuss RNA-seq approaches to determine RNA
structures and termini.
All are kindly welcome!
