Event Details & Abstract: 

Therecent cryo EM resolution revolution has provided unprecedented structuralinsight into many biological processes including pre-mRNA splicing. I willpresent the two recent high resolution cryo EM structures of the yeast U1 snRNPand spliceosomal post-catalytic P complex determined in my lab, as well astheir implications in the molecular mechanism of splicing and alternativesplicing.
