Current mood:talkativeTim Horn, editor-in-chief of AIDSmeds, recently invited me to sit in on a meeting he was having with several folks from Sangamo BioSciences Inc. to hear about their research and development efforts.
The meeting was specifically to cover Sangamo's efforts within HIV, notably its focus on the research and development of novel DNA-binding proteins for therapeutic gene regulation and modification. The meeting had a very technical-slant, as at times I felt like I was in the final round of the National Spelling Bee.
While Tim was keeping up and blitzing them with questions, I was very appreciative of the colorful slides (like the one pictured here) used to illustrate zinc finger DNA-binding proteins (ZFPs) and ZFP transcription factors (ZFP TFs).
