16/12/201612:00PRBB AuditoriumPRBB-CRG SessionsGunter WagnerDepartment of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Yale University, New Haven US"The Origin and Evolution of Cell Types"Host: James Sharpe (CRG)Abstract:One of the major trends in the evolution of animals and plants is the increase in the number of individualized cell types. In this talk I will introduce an evolutionary cell type concept and then present a research program aiming at understanding the molecular basis for the origin of novel cell types. The empirical work is focused on the origin of a cell type that originated with the evolution of eutherian pregnancy, the decidual stromal cell [DSC] of...

Recurrent mutations can arise at the same site or affect the same gene at different sites. Here we identified a set of mutations arising in individual samples and altering different cis-regulatory elements that converge on a common gene via chromatin interactions. The mutations and genes identified in this fashion showed strong relevance to cancer, in contrast to noncoding mutations...

The Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2) is a multiprotein chromatin modifying complex that is essential for vertebrate development and differentiation. It is composed of a trimeric core of SUZ12, EED and EZH1/2 and is responsible for catalysing both di- and tri- methylation of Histone H3 at lysine 27 (H3K27me2/3). Both H3K27 methylations contribute to the role of PRC2 in maintaining cellular identity. In all cell types, the H3K27me3 modification is associated with repression of genes encoding...
