Tet webinar series - Part 1
Studying the Function of Genes by Controlling their Expression
Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hermann Bujard, University of Heidelberg, Germany
This webinar will give an introduction to the underlying principles of the Tet technology and the concept of gene regulation by tetracyclines. Professor Bujard will also discuss the development of the Tet Systems components over time and their advantages as well as giving a review of results obtained by using the technology in transgenic mice.
About the speaker
Hermann Bujard has held positions in academia and industry. In 1970 he was offered the chair of Molecular Genetics at Heidelberg University, and from 1980 to 1985 he was Head of Biological Research and Deputy Director at F. Hoffmann-La Roche in Basel, Switzerland. He returned to Heidelberg to the ZMBH (Center for Molecular Biology) in 1983 after being offered the chair of molecular biology. His research has long been driven by his interest in mechanisms of gene regulation at the transcriptional level as documented by a long list of publications among these (together with Manfred Gossen) on the invention of the Tet technology in 1992. In 1995 Prof. Bujard received the “Beckurts“ award and in 1996 the “Prix Yvette Mayent”. Hermann Bujard founded TET Systems in 2003 together with Manfred Gossen and the late Wolfgang Hillen.
