Lab News – Group meeting 9/27
Crane Lab Group Meeting – Tuesday September 27th at 7:00 p.m.
E.J. will lead the journal club. The article discusses the discovery of a new type of foldase/chaperone – one that is important for survival at low, rather than high, temperature. Takes the ideas about the role of heat shock proteins and thinks about them in reverse – what if there’s too little, rather than too much, protein flexibility?
Alex and Albert will be responsible for snacks, and we may have some people from the Saz lab joining us for the fun.
