In mammals it is unclear how transcription factors achieve DNA occupancy in vivo when their binding sites are buried in chromatin. Nucleosomes are the fundamental repeating subunits of chromatin structure, and they directly bind DNA, which occludes underlying binding sites from their cognate factors. We developed a new method to map the in vivo occupancy and positions of nucleosomes at unprecedented coverage and resolution, and have used it to explore how nucleosomes are reorganized as naïve CD8 T cells differentiate into cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). We show that the transcription factor Runx3 is required for transcription of CTL-specific genes during differentiation and that its in vivo binding to cis-regulatory domains in those genes coincides with displaced nucleosomes that normally form in overlapping sequences. These data are consistent with a model in which transcription factors and nucleosomes compete in vivo for DNA occupancy in sequences where their bindings sites overlap.

The Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts Digital Arts Initiative presents "Invisible Cities: A Concert of Digital Performance" on Thursday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lied Center's Johnny Carson Theater at 11th and R streets. The performance is free and open to the public.
This evening of performances will feature cutting-edge compositions created by students in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln course "Performance, Programming and Interactivity," a unique cross-discplinary class mixing students and faculty from various disciplines, who learned to program for interactive musical and visual performance.
The performance will feature works that mix acoustic and electronic instruments, sensors, motion-tracking devices, video cameras and computers as performance tools. All of the works were developed using Max/MSP/Jitter, a programming language with incredibly powerful tools for creating interactive media.
The title "Invisible Cities" is borrowed from Italo Calvino's book by the same name, and the series of aphoristic and poetic solo, duo and ensemble pieces to be performed are modeled on vignettes found in this text.
Co-led by the Digital Arts Initiative, this concert will be the first event of its kind at UNL to feature this unique blend of technology and performance.
The Digital Arts Initiative is spearheaded by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and is a collaborative effort among Assistant Professors Jeff Thompson (Department of Art and Art History), Damon Thomas Lee (School of Music) and Steve Kolbe (Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film), to provide interested students from all majors hands-on experience applying current technology to the arts.
These elective classes, which include courses such as Digital Video Production, Film Scoring and Creative Sound, and Digital Drawing, bring together students from various disciplines to share their unique perspectives.
