  • Hosios, Aaron M. (Aaron Marc) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Proliferation can be thought of as the sum of many biosynthetic processes. To proliferate, a cell must not only physically divide but must also newly synthesize each of its components as it progresses through the cell ...
  • Fischer, Alexis Dal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Blooms of the dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella cause paralytic shellfish poisoning syndrome and present an expanding public health threat. They are inoculated through the germination of benthic cysts, a process regulated ...
  • Wolfson, Rachel L. (Rachel Laura) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    mTORC1 is a master regulator of cell growth that responds to diverse environmental inputs and is deregulated in human diseases, such as cancer and epilepsy. One important input to this system is amino acids, such as leucine, ...
  • Srinath, Chetan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Neurons rely on mRNA localization and local protein synthesis in neurites to regulate synaptic plasticity, axonogenesis and neural signaling. The local regulation of mRNA stability in neurites is poorly understood. To ...
  • Wang, Tim, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Genetic analysis, or genetic screening, is an efficient method for identifying the set of genes involved in a biological process. In microorganisms, powerful techniques enable systematic loss-of-function screens, which ...
