Abstract:RNA editing is a highly conserved mechanism by which theAdenosine Deaminases Acting on RNA (ADAR) enzymes convert adenosines (A) intoinosines (I), which are recognized by the splicing and translationalmachineries as guanosines (G). This seemingly small modification has anextensive effect both...

Whilemobile genetic elements play a consequential part in bacterial adaptation andantibiotic resistance, relatively little is known about their role inwithin-host pathogen evolution. To explore their function, we constructed acomputational pipeline that identifies variations in gene content amongbacteria of the same...

Researchtopic: The dualrole of a cyanophage thioredoxinAbstract:Marinecyanobacteria are highly abundant photosynthetic organisms that contributegreatly to global primary production. Their viruses, marine cyanophages, arealso extremely abundant and have a major effect on cyanobacterial populations,diversity and evolution. One abundant family of cyanophages,...

Anchoredcells of the basal epidermis constantly undergo proliferation in an overcrowdedenvironment. One important regulator of epidermal proliferation is YAP, whichcan be controlled by both cell-matrix and cell-cell interactions. During myPh.D., I discovered that Thy1, a GPI anchored protein, inhibits epidermal...

The Faculty of Biology at the Technion was founded in 1971, two years before the discovery of DNA structure and the birth of molecular biology. Since its establishment, we at the Faculty of Biology at the Technion see it as a goal to advance the field of modern biology and life sciences in general, to educate and train the future generation to integrate into academia and industry, and lead biological research in Israel and around the world. We aim to provide our students a strong foundation in the exact sciences along with a broad knowledge in all areas of biology and encourage critical and creative thinking to advance the biology of tomorrow.

In recent years, we have witnessed tremendous development in the field of biological technologies, such as genome sequencing, which has led to a revolution in research dealing with the analysis of biological big data. The location of the Faculty of Biology in the heart of the Technion gives it a unique status and promotes groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, combining life sciences, exact sciences, and engineering. In the research laboratories in our faculty, we combine basic research with applied aspects while developing and employing state-of-the-art approaches and methodologies. Our research focuses on a variety of questions in the fields of biology and medicine as well as multidisciplinary topics such as biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, and more. Our vision is to promote and lead interdisciplinary research at the Technion and to position the faculty among the best faculties of biology in Israel and around the world.
