Chromatin Structure and Dynamics research

Thu Apr 26 14:33:36 EST 2001

Dear Arabidopsis Researchers,

As described in the advertisement below, we have available 
immediately a number of openings for Postdoc fellows, graduate 
assistantships and technician positions for our NSF-funded genome 
project.  For those of you who has an interest to pursue study of 
chromatin structure and dynamics in near real-time conditions, we 
would like to hear from you as soon as possible to explore the 
possibility of your joining our team.

In Vivo Imaging of Chromatin Organization and Dynamics by GFP-Tagging.
Several postdoctoral fellow, graduate assistantship and technician 
positions are immediately available to join a team of researchers at 
Rutgers University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to study 
chromatin organization in Arabidopsis.  This is an NSF funded project 
with 5 years of funding that aims to completely chart the 3-D 
structure of interphase nuclei in a living plant.  By wide-field 
fluorescence deconvolution microscopy, we have successfully adapted 
the Green Fluorescent Protein to visually track specific insertion 
sites that were introduced into the Arabidopsis genome.  Using 
multiple spectral variants for GFP, we plan to generate a large 
number of disperse insertion lines that should allow us to produce a 
global chart of the relative positions between different points in 
the genome.  More complete description about our project can be found 
at the website: 
Postdoc fellowship applicants must be motivated and have good 
training in mol
