24/05/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsMoises MalloInstituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Lisbon, PT"The changing lives of the progenitors that build the vertebrate body axis"Host: Manuel Irimia (CRG)Abstract:All vertebrates are built according to the same general scheme: a group of cells, collectively known as axial progenitors, sequentially lay down the primordia for all body organs and structures, starting with the head and then progressing all the way down to the tail. Although the progenitors that build the different body areas belong to the same cell lineage, their properties change drastically as they engage in the production of more posterior body structures. I will...

These pathologies are typically associated with disturbed early neurodevelopment and brain wiring. The fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the...

Identifying and characterizing these mutations, however is challenging; unlike coding loci, the locations and function of DNA regulatory elements cannot typically be determined by DNA sequence alone. Regulatory elements are also highly...
