Seeing Biological Molecules with X-ray Vision

Thu, May 01, 2003
Location - TBA

Speaker

Fred HughsonDR. FRED HUGHSON
Professor of Molecular Biology

Description

On May 1, 2003 Dr. Hughson introduced the power of X-ray crystallography. Dr. Hughson and Dr. Bassler (TIGER Talk #1 speaker) collaborated to solve the structure of the signaling factor which bacteria use to communicate. Dr. Hughson discussed how the structure of DNA was determined using X-ray crystallography.

For a slide show and clear explanation of X-ray crystallography, here's a link from the Brookhaven National Lab.

Attending alumni teachers were given a DNA Optical Transform Kit to share with their students and colleagues.

This topic spans all of the sciences.
