Scientific sessions of the PRBB centres funded by the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park


18/11/201912:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsNaama BarkaiWeizmann Institute of Science, IL“Maintaining proportions in early development”Host: Postdoctoral ResearchersAbstract:During embryonic development, different tissues and organs differentiate at specific spatial positions. These resulting spatial pattern is highly reproducible between embryos, despite significant variability in e.g. embryo size. In my talk, I will discuss mechanisms that monitor the reproducibility of patterning, and in particular ensures scales tissue pattern with tissue size. I will focus on patterning by gradients of morphogens: molecules that can trigger different cell fate in a...

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...

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...
