The SFB 1381 investigates how different proteins are dynamically assembled into complex multimers, the so-called protein machineries, which play a central role e.g. in the energy metabolism of the cell, the replication, repair, and transcription of DNA, the folding and degradation of proteins, as well as the intra- and intercellular communication and transport processes. The focus of the SFB 1381 lies on the organization of these protein machineries in modular units, the regulation of their assembly and disassembly, and the impact of these processes on cellular functions.
The aim of the SFB 1381 is to define and understand the dynamic processes of the assembly and organization of cellular protein machineries, and to gain insight into the fundamental processes in a living cell.
We are happy to announce the release of our SFB 1381 image video in which we want to give the public an insight into the work we do and what topics we consider especially important.
In Fall 2021, the SFB 1381 hybrid Workshop “Measuring Protein-Protein Interactions” took place. The hybrid format was a great success and has proven to be a tool with which the quality of workshops can be ensured in times of the pandemic.
On September 24th, 2021, SGBM PhD students, including PhD students from SFB 1381, met up for their annual retreat.
On September 24th, SGBM will host its yearly retreat for PhD students online. PhD students have the chance to share scientific knowledge and get to know one another.
In October 2021, SFB 1381 hosts a workshop about the csBNMS approach and the viewer tool for exploring complexome profile data.
This online-workshop, taking place in October, is intended to provide you with two general assays, which are useful for the study of protein-protein interactions independent of the organism or system you are working in.
SFB1381 joint publication of Chris Meisinger (Project A6), Claudine Kraft (Project B10) and Nora Vögtle (Project B4) on the discovery of a protein kinase that regulates assembly of the human mitochondrial import machinery. Publication in Nature Communications.
There are 4 places left for the workshop “Data Analysis and Statistics using R and RStudio”.
The workshop is held online on 29th and 30th of July 2021.
We are delighted to announce our first SFB 1381 symposium ““Dynamic organization of cellular protein machineries“, which will be held from March 9-11, 2022 in Freiburg.
Together with Pint of Science Freiburg, the CIBSS – Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies invites for a workshop by Science Communicator Philipp Schrögel on reaching new audiences with your science.
The SFB PI Sonja Albers (project A1) and the Young Investigator Grantee Sascha Yousefi (project YIG2) are presenting their work to the public in the frame of the Pint of Science Germany Festival. Attendance is free of charge.
On the 8th and 9th of March 2021 all SFB researchers met virtually for the annual retreat. Although we could not meet in person, the meeting was a great success. Thanks to all participants for their excellent contributions!
Dr. Laura Gámez-Días from the Institute of Immunodeficency, University Medical Center Freiburg, and Dr. Sascha Yousefi from the Institute of Biology, University of Freiburg are the Young Investigator Grantees of the SFB 1381.
Asifa Akhtar (Project B3) received the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2021 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for her outstanding work on the regulation of the genome.
