Weinberger Lab Outreach and Volunteering
September 19, 2018
More congratulations! To Maike, Ravi and Leor who’s paper ‘Cytoplasmic Amplification of Transcriptional Noise Generates Substantial Cell-to-Cell Variability’ was published today in Cell Systems.
There is a great article on Gladstone’s site, detailing the science behind the paper -
Congratulations, Noam, Sonali and Leor on the publication of your paper ‘Feedback-mediated signal conversion promotes viral fitness’, published in PNAS. Read it here.
The study which prompted this paper uncovered the mechanism that allows the human cytomegalovirus - a leading cause of birth defects and transplant failures - to replicate. This could open new therapeutic avenues to treat not only cytomegalovirus, but other viruses too. Read more
Congratulations to Maike, Winnie, Elena and Casey on their paper, 'A Post-Transcriptional Feedback Mechanism for Noise Suppression and Fate Stabilization' published in Cell. Click here.
We welcome Marie Wolf, Lab Manager, and Kevin Mutchnick, Research Assistant, to Weinberger Lab.
