25/04/201711:00R_473.10_AULATBDO SessionsRyan Timothy GillSlade Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering. CSO, Muse Biotech"Impact in nontraditional manners: An academics journey through the startup world"Host: Cironi López, PabloAbstract:Abstract: Woud you rather change the world through a ground breaking scientific insight or through a new technology that changes the way people lived? A nature paper or a PCR machine? Creating 1000 jobs or educating 1000 students? These questions do not have to have mutually exclusive answers — in many centers of innovation faculty, leaders, and students are doing both, and doing them exceptionally well. In fact, in some cases it is expected that faculty will devote a certain amount of their to...

Perth."Recurrent acquisition of cytosine methyltransferases into eukaryotic retrotransposons"Host: Irimia Martínez, ManuelAbstract:Repetitive elements require regulatory mechanisms to remain active while not harming the host genome in order to proliferate. On the other hand, the host genome has mechanisms to silence those repetitive elements in a constant arms race. Cytosine methylation is one of the silencing mechanisms used by many distantly related eukaryotes, a epigenetic mark deposited by C5 cytosine methyltransferases (CMTs). Here we report how two...

In our lab, we use a combination of synthetic biology, next generation sequencing and high-throughput screens to study the molecular effects of mutations in protein-coding and non-coding genes. We are particularly interested in the effects of mutations on gene...

Our laboratory applied HTS technology to rapidly rank multiple toxicity-related parameters for diverse manufactured nanomaterials, spanning carbon nanotubes, silicas...

09/05/201711:00R_473.10_AULAISA SessionsGabrielle BertierJoint PhD between the McGill Department of Human Genetics Center for Genomics and Policy in Montreal and the University Toulouse III Paul Sabatierv"Next-generation sequencing in the clinic: where are we and where are we going?”Host: Bertero, MichelaAbstract:Background: Whole-exome sequencing (WES) analyses all known exons in the human genome. Originally developed in research, this technology is increasingly used to inform patient care. The implementation of WES into healthcare poses significant organizational, regulatory, and ethical hurdles. There is little evidence to date as to how WES is used in French and Quebec clinics.

Objectives and Methods: To inform policy...

For the past years, we focused on branched actin networks and their ability to produce forces. These self-assembling structures push against cellular membranes and are required for many cellular processes, including: cell motility, endocytosis, phagocytosis, and autophagy. Despite the importance of actin-mediated force generation, surprisingly little is known about...
