14/10/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsNicola J. CurtinInstitute for Ageing, Newcastle University. Newcastle upon Tyne, UK"The development of Rucaparib (Rubraca): A story of the synergy between science and serendipityHost: José Yélamos (IMIM)

15/10/201912:00631Systems Biology ProgrammeToni BeltranMRC London Institute of Medical Sciences/Imperial College London"piRNAs: from evolution to transgenerational epigenetics"Host: Lehner, BenAbstract:Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are a class of small RNAs expressed in the germline of metazoans that function in transposable element (TE) repression to ensure genomic integrity. In this talk, I will discuss two aspects of piRNA biology focusing on the model nematode C. elegans. First, I will describe the evolution of nematode piRNAs, and I will demonstrate how the origin and evolution of the pathway can provide insights on the mechanisms of piRNA biogenesis. In the second part of the talk, I will focus on the ability of piRNAs and...

This includes a series of applications of our full-length cDNA technology, and more recently, expression profiling using CAGE (cap-analysis gene expression). For each phase of the FANTOM project, we generated a large-scale dataset using our...

Through controlled access, approved researchers from across the globe may obtain access to complete statistical analyses, individual phenotype information and molecular data. This presentation will summarize the data content, technical and biological...

22/11/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsPhilippe SanseauHead Computational Biology, GSK, UK"Use of highly-dimensional genetics and genomics data for drug discovery"Host: Roderic Guigó (CRG)Abstract:Drug discovery and development remains a very long and costly process. The majority of projects will fail due to lack of efficacy or because of safety concerns. This could happen at multiple stages but the later it is, the more expensive is the failure. Therefore, the choice of drug targets is very important since the outcome might not be known for many years. We have shown that using human genetics information may increase the chance of success in the clinic for new drug targets. In addition, the new functional genomics technologies...

25/11/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsAshby J. MorrisonDepartment of Biology, Stanford Biology, US"Epigenetic Regulation of Carcinogen Susceptibility"Host: Ben Lehner (CRG)Abstract:The development of many sporadic cancers is directly initiated by carcinogen exposure. Despite this knowledge, there has been remarkably little investigation into the factors that regulate susceptibility to acquire carcinogen-induced DNA lesions. Our research identifies the epigenetic regulators of carcinogen susceptibility and establish it as an origin of genome instability that mirrors mutagenesis in cancer.

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...
