20/09/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsSalvador AznarInstitute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), Barcelona, Spain"Stem cell function in homeostasis and aging: why time and what we eat matter"Host: Juan Valcárcel (CRG)Abstract:We study how adult stem cells maintain tissue homeostasis, and why and how their striking regenerative capacity is altered during aging and cancer. One aspect we are particularly interested in is the fact that the activity of adult stem cells is under robust circadian control. This not only allows stem cells to anticipate correct functions according to the time of the day, but also to temporally segregate...

DNA repair pathways ensure that all resulting damage is efficiently removed hence maintaining the integrity of large eukaryotic genomes, by minimising the mutation rate. This is achieved through several highly effective pathways for DNA repair with distinct specificities, despite partial redundancies. The importance of these pathways is highlighted by the...

11/10/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsNorman DaveyUniversity College Dublin, IE"Understanding the functional role of the intrinsically disordered proteome"Host: Cedric Notredame (CRG)Abstract:Many proteins harbour extensive regions that lack stable secondary or tertiary structure in their native unbound states. These protein segments, known as intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs), are predicted to constitute up to 40% of the residues in higher eukaryotic proteomes. IDRs engage in diverse sets of activities that include providing enzyme docking sites regulating protein modification states, controlling protein stability (by recruiting ubiquitin ligases), acting...

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...
