02/09/202412:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsIgor UlitskyWeizmann Institute of Science"Cis- and trans-acting gene regulation by long noncoding RNAs"Host: Eva NovoaAbstract:Given the growing number of lncRNAs implicated in human disease or required for proper development, fundamental questions that need to be addressed are: Which lncRNAs are functional? How is functional information encoded in the lncRNA sequence? Is this information interpreted in the context of the mature or the nascent RNA? What are the identities and functional roles of specific sequence domains within lncRNA genes? These are challenging questions, primarily because of the substantial...

Understanding how precision in patterning is robustly achieved despite the inherent developmental variability remains a challenge. Our group aims to understand the design principle of multi-cellular organisms using early mammalian embryos as a model system. Our studies showed that feedbacks between cell fate, polarity and cell/tissue mechanics underlie the robust formation...

Cellular actin networks continuously assemble and disassemble while maintaining their overall structure. This behavior, called dynamic steady state, allows cells to sense and adapt to their environment. We developed reconstituted systems in vitro to mimic steady-state conditions with either unlimited or limited amounts of components, establishing feedback...
