The Department of Chemistry is excited to host Jordan L. Meier (National Cancer Institute) Acetylation control of RNA N4-acetylcytidine is an ancient RNA modification catalyzed by an enzyme essential for human life. However, its distribution, dynamics, and function remain mysterious. In this seminar I will introduce my group's work developing chemical tools to investigate RNA acetylation, how we have applied these tools to map this modification across the tree of life, and highlight the utility of basic research in guiding fundamental insights into the biology of RNA modifications as well as new therapeutic approaches.
