21/02/202010:00R_473.10_AULASystems Biology ProgrammeJolanda van LeeuwenUniversity of Lausanne, Lausanne"Systematic analysis of genetic suppression interactions"Host: Lehner, BenAbstract:Recent genome sequencing efforts have identified people that are healthy despite carrying mutations that have been directly associated with severe early-onset Mendelian diseases. These resilient individuals may carry secondary mutations elsewhere in the genome that can compensate for the deleterious effect of the disease-associated mutation, a phenomenon referred to as genetic suppression. Identification of the protective mutations could highlight strategies for therapeutic intervention, but we currently lack the expertise to identify the suppressor...

Stressed cells undergo controlled changes on many levels to alter their physiology and metabolism. Many of these changes appear to directly result from alterations in the organization of the cytoplasm. Indeed, recent work from my lab shows that stressed cells form many membraneless compartments in the...

A set of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), amongst others the brain-specific double-stranded RBP Staufen2 (Stau2) and Pumilio2 (Pum2) critically contribute to these processes. However, the...

28/02/202014:00R_473.10_AULASystems Biology ProgrammeJulian KönigInstitute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Mainz"Genomic views of the RNA world"Host: Lehner, BenAbstract:Our work focusses on deciphering the regulatory code of splicing and quality control mechanisms in human physiology and disease. To this end, we build on the iCLIP technology to map protein-RNA interaction sites throughout the transcriptome. We have set up ´in vitro iCLIP´ that combines the strength of biochemical experiments with the power of high-throughput sequencing, and we developed a massively parallel reporter screen to identify all cis-regulatory elements that control selected splicing decisions. This experimental setup enables us to obtain mechanistic insights...

It is now well appreciated that the human genome encodes tens of thousands of distinct lncRNA transcripts, and an increasing number are implicated as regulators in critical pathways in health and disease. The mechanisms underlying their activity, to what extent these rely on specific sequences or structures, and how they are...

It also causes photooxidative stress and cellular damage by generating highly reactive oxygen species like singlet oxygen, which attack cellular proteins, DNA and lipids. We study the molecular mechanisms by which the Gram-negative, predatory soil bacterium Myxococcus xanthus responds to light and their evolutionary conservation from bacteria to...
