NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • WORD OF CAUTION: WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak, which originated in Wuhan, China, as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. COVID-19 spreads primarily from person to person. Fighting this disease is our joint responsibility.

  • The Policy Research Cell of DST initiated the Science Technology and  Innovation (STI) Policy Fellowship Programme in 2016 in order to enhance the human resources in this area and strengthen evidence-based policy making in the country. In a nation-wide, stiff competition, the programme selects a small number of candidates for three levels of fellowships. In the 2019 call, six candidates have been selected at the post-doctoral level and IBAB’s Dr. Mohua C. Choudhury is one of them. A big congrats to Mohua!

  • Dr. Shubhada Hegde recently published a collaborative study with Dr. V. Nagaraja of IISc titled “Revisiting intrinsic transcription termination in mycobacteria: U-tract downstream of secondary structure is dispensable for termination” in Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communication. Dr. Hegde predicted non-canonical terminators in mycobacterial genomes using a computational approach, which were then experimentally validated by Dr. Nagaraja’s team. Their work suggests that “the presence of U-tract following the G/C-rich stem in an intrinsic terminator may not be an essential determinant for transcription termination in mycobacteria”. Congratulations, Dr. Shubhada!Paper link – https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bbrc.2019.11.062
