College of Science Assistant Professor Publishes on Genetic Parasites

Department of Biological Sciences' Assistant Professor Paul Rowley published a PLoS Genetics  last week in collaboration with University of Colorado Boulder and University of California, Irvine researchers. The team showed that yeast have evolved to protect their genomes against "genetic parasites," which are gene sequences that can propagate throughout an organism's genome. Proteins within the yeast's nuclear pore, which is a passageway into the nucleus, have evolved their shape to limit the ability of genetic parasites to enter the nucleus. Future studies will investigate how viruses like HIV hijack nuclear pore proteins to cause disease.
