  A structural basis for the cross-talk between histones and RNA Polymerase II
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Prof S Vanacova
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromatin is a highly flexible architecture in which spatially and temporally coordinated changes between structurally condensed states (transcriptionally repressive), and structurally accessible states (transcriptionally active) regulate gene expression.
  Characterization of cyclin-dependent kinase 12 (CDK12) substrates and their roles in regulation of transcription and tumorigenesis
  Dr D Blažek, Prof Z Zdrahal
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type
