Hoskins will work in collaboration with a Stanford professor using new technology to catalog the biochemical function of thousands of mutations.
Hoskins, whose research focuses on the eukaryotic spliceosome, was elected to serve a two year term spanning 2024-2025.
Biochemistry teaching faculty Erica Shu’s company, EzraBio, Inc., has developed improved technology to gain new insights into how protein synthesis is initiated and how it can go awry.
The governments of Wisconsin and the German state of Hesse have had a sister state relationship for nearly 40 years. In November 2022, three leaders in RNA biology visited UW–Madison Biochemistry.
Most antibiotics are double-edged swords — while killing bacteria, they also decimate beneficial bacteria and change the composition of the gut microbiome. The answer to this problem might be narrow-spectrum antibiotics. UW–Madison scientists took a close look at one such antibiotic using cryo-EM. Their findings are detailed in Nature.
The Department of Biochemistry is hosting its first virtual Steenbock Symposium April 22 – 23, 2021. This year’s international symposium, entitled “SpliceCon 2021,” brings together 17 invited speakers and over 200 scientists from across the globe to explore the field of pre-RNA splicing. The symposium kicks off with a keynote lecture delivered by Holger Stark …
Biochemistry postdoctoral scholar Kate Henderson has received the 2019 Paul Boyer Award for Postdoctoral Excellence in Biochemistry.
New research on transcriptional pausing, which helps control gene expression in cells, will aid in the understanding of the enzyme RNA polymerase — a key player in the process and an important drug target.
A new study reports for the first time the structure of eight proteins interacting with the U6 RNA.
