The course will feature lessons and lectures by renowned experts, leaders in the field of systems biology of transcription regulation covering a wide range of current frontiers. Topics will include:
Broad Perspective on the Field
State-of-the-Art Genomic Methods
Frontiers in Massively Parallel Reporter Assays
Advances in Investigating Transcription Factors' Activator Domain
Frontiers in High-Throughput Transcription Factors Binding In Vitro
Single Molecule and Single Cell Studies of Gene Regulation In Vivo and In Vitro
The 3D Genome and Its Impact
Condensates in Gene Regulation
Evolution and Structural Aspects of Transcription Factors and Gene Regulation
These lectures offer a comprehensive exploration of cutting-edge research and breakthroughs in the exciting realm of gene regulation across different scales.
The course is composed of two main components:
Regular 2-hour classroom lectures every week, which are taught by prominent scientists in the field.
1-hour seminars conducted by the same speaker. These seminars are mandatory for course attendees but are also open to the broader Weizmann scientific community.
The grading system for this course is Pass/Fail, determined by both attendance and a short oral presentation by each student.
