Ultraviolet irradiation causes DNA damages and leads to genome mutation and potential skin cancer. However, such damage can be restored completely by photolyase enzymes in nature with blue light. Using femtosecond spectroscopy and molecular biology, we report here the real-time studies of complete repair processes at the most fundamental level and thus reveal the repair photocycle and elucidate the molecular mechanism.

There will be a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome. In the event of bad weather, the observing will not be possible, but the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead.
Please meet in room 308 of the Physics building for the talk. The start time is 8pm during Winter months (November to March inclusive) and 9pm for the rest of the year (April to October inclusive).
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
