25/05/201516:30PRBB AuditoriumPRBB-CRG SessionsEugene V. KooninNational Centre for Biotechnology Information National Library of Medicine, NIH, Bethesda, United States"Orthology: the shifting cornerstone of genomics"Host: Toni Gabaldón (CRG)Abstract:Gene orthology arguably is the central concept of evolutionary genomics. Orthologs are of homologous genes that are related by speciation, i.e. form follow a vertical pattern of descent along substantial evolutionary spans. As captured in the so-called “orthology conjecture”, orthologous genes are generally assumed to perform equivalent functions in different organisms and to share other key properties. Attempts to...

Strasbourg, France"What a natural reprogramming event tells us on the mechanisms underlying cellular plasticity"Host: Thomas Graf (CRG)Abstract:Whereas postmitotic somatic cellular identity is generally a stable feature of multicellular organisms, natural interconversions between functionally distinct somatic cell types (aka transdifferentiation or Td) have been reported in species as diverse as jellyfish and mice. In some cases, Td events occur with remarkable precision and efficiency. For example, our laboratory has recently shown that a rectal cell suddenly...

Bern, Switzerland"Cell selection: a general mechanism during Ageing, Cancer and Neurobiology"Host: Bill Keyes (CRG)Abstract:Humans are able to detect fitness decay in other colleagues by looking at the graying of the hair or the wrinkles in their faces. Work from my laboratory in the last few years showed that cells can also detect fitness levels of neighboring cells using a molecular code. Those "fitness fingerprints" can be used to mediate cell selection by recognizing and eliminating less fit cells. We are currently studying the molecular and...

19/06/201512:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsKarim LabibCollege of Life Sciences, University of Dundee, Dundee UK"The End of Chromosome Replication"Host: Manuel Mendoza (CRG)Abstract:Chromosome replication is initiated by a universal mechanism in eukaryotic cells, involving the assembly and activation at replication origins of the DNA helicase known as CMG (Cdc45-MCM-GINS). The CMG helicase is essential for the progression of replication forks and is an interesting potential target for cancer therapies. The replisome is built around the CMG helicase, which associates stably with DNA replication forks until the termination of DNA synthesis. In contrast to...
