Über den Vortragenden: Der Vortragende ist Professor für evolutionäre Genetik der Pflanzen an der Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg.

Inhalt des Vortrags: Intron splicing increases proteome complexity, promotes RNA stability, and enhances transcription. However, introns and the concomitant need for splicing extend the time required for gene expression and can cause an undesirable delay in the activation of genes. Due to their sessile lifestyle, plants must adapt to a plethora of environmental changes (stresses) very quickly, which likely explains the relatively high abundance of intronless genes in plant genomes compared to other higher eukaryotes. What are the fundamental differences between intronless and intron-containing genes and how are they regulated? In this talk, I will discuss mechanisms specific for intronless genes and how introns can be removed quickly in response to stresses.
