Validation of a standard approach for quantitative characterization of promoter strength
Poster Feb 28, 2010
The rational design of synthetic biological systems can be performed only using a set of well-characterized biological parts. In this work, the Relative Promoter Units (RPUs) standard measurement method, proposed by Kelly et al., 2008, was validated and applied to characterize eight promoters from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. The RPU approach allows the measurement of a promoter of interest using BBa_J23101 constitutive promoter as a standard reference.
Psychiatric Risk Gene Cacna1c and Early Life Stress: Potential Gene-Environment interactions?Poster
Early life stress (ELS) is highly associated with development of psychopathology
and mood disorders in adulthood. Genetic studies have identified variation in the gene calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1C (CACNA1C) to increase risk for several psychiatric disorders. This poster assessed the expression of Cacna1c following prepubertal stress.
