下周二(9月24日)下午1:00-2:00有CQB学术报告。本次报告由汤超老师主持,欢迎参加!

题目: Evolutionary analysis of microRNA regulatory networks at different time scales.

[size=13.63636302947998px]MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate expression of target genes at the post-transcriptional level.   A microRNA can target more than 100 genes and one gene can in turn be regulated by multiple microRNAs.  Given the broad interactions between microRNAs and their targets, the origin and evolution of such a system is intriguing.   My research focuses on the gene regulation mediated by microRNAs as well as other small RNAs from the perspective of evolutionary biology.
[size=13.63636302947998px]In this talk, I will first illustrate the birth and death process of microRNAs by showing that most newly emerged microRNAs are evolutionarily transient.   Next I will discuss the impacts of microRNA targeting on natural variation in human gene expression.  Then I will talk about the relation between aberrant regulation of microRNAs and cancer.   Finally, I will briefly describe my research on population genomics of piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), another class of small RNAs.

陆剑博士在99年从北大生科院本科毕业,随后在北大生科院戴灼华教授实验室获得遗传学硕士学位。从2002年开始,他到芝加哥大学生态与进化系攻读博士学位,师从吴仲义(Chung-I Wu)教授,并在2008年毕业后先后在本实验室以及康奈尔大学分子生物学与遗传系的Andrew G. Clark教授实验室做博士后工作。他于2013年5月回国,担任北大生命科学学院研究员,生命中心研究员。

主要研究方向为:
1) 非编码RNA调控在动物发育、组织形成及逆环境干扰等生命过程中的作用  
2) 非编码RNA调控网络的遗传变异及其对动物表型、地域性适应和疾病发生的影响  
3) 基于群体水平的基因组学研究
