Project description:RNA-seq Experiments from Calorie Restricted and Non-Restricted WT Yeast We used RNA-seq to study transcriptome changes under Calorie Restricted and Non-restricted Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Project description:MNase-seq Experiments from Calorie Restricted and Non-Restricted Yeast from WT, ISW2DEL and ISW2K215R strains We used MNase-seq to study genome-wide nucleosome positions under Calorie Restricted and Non-restricted Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Project description:New1 is not an essential gene but its deletion shows a cold-sensitive phenotype in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In this study, we compare the NEW1 knockout effect on translation using Ribo-Seq and RNA-Seq analyses.
Project description:This project aims to identify novel RNA binding proteins in the baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Since interactions between RNAs and proteins may be transient, yeast cells were crosslinked with UV light at 254 nm which promotes the covalent link between proteins and RNAs. After this, polyadenylated mRNAs were purified via oligo(dT) coupled to magentic beads under stringet conditions. Finally, samples were subjected to mass spectrometry analysis. To rule out the possibility of RNA-independent binding we also analysed other samples: i) samples digested with RNase one; ii) samples where we performed competition assays with polyadenylic acid.
Project description:Total RNA versus genomic DNA hybridization on custom arrays designed for all Saccharomyces cerevisiae genes Overall design: Total RNA was collected in mid-log phase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells grown in rich medium (abbreviated CM, in house recipe). RNA was then converted to cDNA, Cy3-labeled and hybridized competitively against Cy5 labeled genomic DNA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
