Tamar Basiashvili is joining our lab as a graduate student. Welcome Tamar!
Digvijay’s work on the in situ yeast NPC has been posted on bioRxiv. This work was a massive collaboration with the labs of Chris Akey, Mike Rout, Andrej Sali, and Steve Ludke.
Elizabeth is selected as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigator. This wonderful opportunity which was only possible through the work of lab members through the years, will allow us to continue to pursue high-risk research. We’re so excited!
Elizabeth is promoted to associate professor with tenure. This was possible thanks to the amazing past and present lab members, our fantastic collaborators, and the very supportive environment at UC San Diego Biological Sciences that allowed us to build a complex research infrastructure from scratch. Let’s go!
Matt’s paper describing the use of entropy regularized deconvolution for cryo-ET is now on bioRxiv. This was the produce of a longstanding collaboration with John Sedat.
Josh’s PhD paper is now published in Nature Communications.
Our paper in collaboration with the Shapiro lab was posted to bioRxiv. This work deciphers the molecular grammar of the bacterial protein PopZ in forming phase-separated compartments, and uses PopZ as a synthetic tool in human cells. Vinson used cryo-ET to show that altering protein domain composition changes structural order of the compartments and affects ribosome distribution in cells.
