Marie Curie Seminars

  • Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : John Marko (Department of Molecular Biosciences, Northwestern University, Evanston, USA)

    Mechanics, topology and geometry of mammalian chromosomes and nuclei and their modulation by histone epigenetic marks

    Our lab uses biophysical methods, with particular emphasis on micromanipulation of single DNA molecules and single chromosomes, to study the internal structure of chromosomes in vivo, and to study chromosome-organizing proteins and DNA topoisomerases in vitro. We also develop mathematical models ...

    An ancient machinery drives piRNA transcription in C. elegans

    Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) engage Piwi proteins to suppress transposons and nonself nucleic acids and maintain genome integrity and are essential for fertility in a variety of organisms. In Caenorhabditis elegans, most piRNA precursors are transcribed from two genomic clusters that contain th...

  • Thursday, January 24th, 2019 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Richard D Cummings,

    Integration of Glycomics, Development, and Immunology

    Ludger Johannes has invited  Pr Richard D. Cummings from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Harvard Medical School to come and give a talk on "Integration of Glycomics, Development, and Immunology". He will also participate in the Pastor's course

  • Friday, January 18th, 2019 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : George Demetri (Center for Sarcoma and Bone Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston USA)

    Precise and imprecise therapeutic targeting of sarcomas across the age spectrum

    The biological and clinical diversity of sarcomas represents both a scientific opportunity and a medical challenge.  Although cytotoxic chemotherapy can be curative for an important subset of patients, advances in technology have allowed us to identify mechanisms of oncogenic drivers and therapeu...

  • Friday, January 18th, 2019 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Véronique Gouverneur (University of Oxford, UK )

    Late stage (radio)fluorination. Lessons to be learned from the fluorinase enzyme

    The impact of fluorine chemistry in the life sciences is enormous.  As many as 30−40% of agrochemicals and 20% of pharmaceuticals on the market are estimated to contain fluorine. 19F- and 18F-labelled compounds are also finding increasing applications in imaging such as Magnetic Resonance I...

  • Monday, December 17th, 2018 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : David GILBERT (Florida State University)

    Regulation of Replication Timing and Chromosome Architecture

    The temporal order of DNA replication (replication timing, RT) is highly coupled with genome architecture, but cis-elements regulating spatio-temporal control of replication have remained elusive. We performed an extensive series of CRISPR mediated deletions and inversions and high-resolution cap...

  • Monday, December 10th, 2018 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard

    Marie Curie Seminar: Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard - How fish colour their skin: A paradigm for development and evolution of adult patterns

    Colour patterns are prominent features of most animals; they are highly variable and evolve rapidly leading to large diversities between species even within a single genus. As targets for natural as well as sexual selection, they are of high evolutionary significance. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) ...

  • Wednesday, November 7th, 2018 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Anthony Hyman (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden (Germany))

    The role of phase separation in organising cellular biochemistry

    We are actively studying the physical mechanisms of phase separation in the lab, using biophysical, genetic, and chemical methods. The principles of phase separation also inform our understanding of the formation of centrosomes, another active area of research in the lab. Click the buttons below ...

  • Thursday, October 11th, 2018 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Claudio Stern (Department of Cell & Developmental Biology, University College of London (UK))

    Gastrulation through a primitive streak : cellular mechanisms & signals

    Amniote (birds and most mammals) embryos have the remarkable ability to undergo “embryonic regulation”: this is a property by which a fragment of the embryo can reconstitute the entire embryo. This can occur right up to the appearance of the primitive streak (14th day in humans), and ...

  • Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 - Institutional seminar "Marie Curie Seminar" Speaker(s) : Alfonso VALENCIA (BSC Barcelona Supercomputing Center)

    Networks based approaches in epigenomics, evolution and biomedicine

    Network biology, a growing field of Computational Biology, opens great new possibilities for the study of complex biological systems. In this presentation, I will review four specific cases of the application network approaches. In the first study, we processed heterogeneous ChIP-Seq informati...
