A day in the life of a DNA editor
Follow a day in the life of the Rehwinkel lab, as the team joins forces to do a large genome editing screen, hunting for genes involved in the type I IFN signaling pathway – an important biological cascade involved in regulating our immune system. By using this new technology they hope to better understand how our bodies respond to viral infections.
The Rehwinkel lab studies nucleic acid sensing in infection and immunity and is party of our MRC Human Immunology Unit (Radcliffe Department of Medicine). You can find out more here: http://www.imm.ox.ac.uk/mrc-human-immunology-unit
