PROJECT SUMMARY In eukaryotes, heterochromatin domains play a key role in packaging, protecting as well as regulating the expression of the genetic material. In S.pombe, the nuclear RNA interference (RNAi) machinery is involved in the formation of heterochromatin and it appears likely that a similar process may function in mammalian cells. In this proposal, we aim to address the following questions: How does the first wave of the RNAi machinery localize to the repeats, what role do the DNA or RNA sequences play in this process? What is the kinetics of this process and is there an order of assembly and a time scale associated with it? This information is important especially in the context of data that implicates the nuclear RNAi pathway in the setting up facultative heterochromatin in mammalian cells, and playing a role in development, chromosome segregation and surveillance. The successful outcome of this study will identify sequence elements that are essential for de novo establishment of heterochromatin and silencing. In addition, we will also be able to generate a kinetic roadmap of how the RNAi machinery is recruited and silencing established. 

Qualified and interested candidates may send their curriculum vitae by e-mail to hr@drils.org on or before deadline mention in the subject line of the mail the following code: - Heterochromatin- Biology, Selected candidates will be called for a personal interview to Dr. Reddy’s Institute of Life Sciences, University of Hyderabad Campus, Gachibowli, Hyderabad. 

Candidates will not be reimbursed for Travel for the Interview, if short listed.
