Abstract: Rapid advances in high-throughput technologies, including next-generation sequencing, proteomics, and metabolomics, are providing exceptionally detailed descriptions of the molecular changes that occur in diseases. However, it is difficult to use these data to reveal new therapeutic insights. Despite their power, each method only captures a small fraction of the cellular response. Moreover, when different assays are applied to the same problem, they provide apparently conflicting answers. Furthermore, data from clinical samples sometimes make each patient appear unique. I will show how network modeling approaches integrate disparate data to reveal functionally coherent pathways. These networks can identify features common to subgroups of patients that may provide critical insights for targeted therapies.Tags: Biocomputing, Biological Networks, Cell Regulation and Signaling, Gene Regulation, Systems Biology

Abstract:
Autism is genetically complex, but several conditions within the autistic spectrum have simple genetic causes. Because of their known origin, single gene disorders of this kind are more straightforward to understand and may hold lessons that apply broadly. An example is Rett syndrome, a profound neurological disorder that almost exclusively results from mutations in the MECP2 gene. Duplication of the MECP2 gene also leads to a distinct autism spectrum disorder. The MeCP2 protein binds to sites on DNA that are chemically altered by DNA methylation and appears to interpret this epigenetic mark to affect gene expression. Both the spectrum of mutations causing Rett syndrome and biochemical and genetic analyses of MeCP2 function support the view that the primary function of this protein is to inhibit transcription in a DNA methylation-dependent manner. Alternative hypotheses for MeCP2 function have been proposed, however, leading us to test several key predictions in detail. These results, together with our earlier demonstration that this disorder is potentially curable, illuminate the global role played by MeCP2 and suggest possible therapeutic avenues.

Abstract: Long-lived animals, such as lobsters and humans, confront a complex problem: their neurons live for many, many years, yet all of the molecules that are important for neuronal and synaptic function are being replaced on time-scales from minutes to weeks. How do nervous systems maintain stable function in the face of molecular turnover? And, does stable circuit function demand constancy in the cellular and molecular components that give rise to brain functions? This leads to the question of how well-tuned do brains need to be to produce behavior that we consider healthy and normal? Experimental work on the crustacean stomatogastric ganglion (STG) has revealed a 2-6 fold variability in many of the parameters that are important for circuit dynamics.

At the same time, a body of theoretical work shows that similar network performance can arise from diverse underlying parameter sets. Together, these lines of evidence suggest that each individual animal, at any moment in its life-time, has found a different solution to producing good enough motor patterns for healthy performance in the world. This poses the question of the extent to which animals with different sets of underlying circuit parameters can respond reliably and robustly to environmental perturbations and neuromodulation. Consequently, we study the effects of temperature, pH and neuromodulation on the pyloric rhythm of crabs. While all animals respond remarkably well to large environmental perturbations, extreme perturbations that produce system "crashes" reveal the underlying parameter differences in the population. Moreover, new models of homeostatic regulation of intrinsic excitability give insight into the kinds of mechanisms that could give rise to the highly variable solutions to stable circuit performance.

Abstract: Pluripotent stem can be expanded indefinitely in vitro and also differentiate into any cell type, making them a great tool for regenerative medicine. We are interested in understanding how PSCs are generated and maintained, in particular by looking at the network of transcription factors and the signaling pathways feeding into it. We also study the interplay between metabolism and transcription in PSCs. To do so we combine molecular, cellular and computational biology.

Abstract: The biosciences are witnessing a rapid growth and diversification of research. Scientific progress depends on efficient mechanisms to select, quality control, archive, share and find reliable and reproducible research. The research paper remains the predominant mode of sharing peer-reviewed research findings, and a subset of scientific journals play important roles also as a proxy for quality and impact in research assessment. I will discuss how the editorial and peer review process at highly selective journals can be reformed to assess both the interest and quality of the claims made by a researcher, and also the reliability, reproducibility and integrity of the experimental data.
I will discuss forward looking policies and publishing modalities that facilitate sharing and discoverability of research data with minimal delay, focussing on EMBO Source Data policies and technology and Preprint servers. I will discuss the promises and challenges of the nascent preprint movement in the biosciences and highlight how preprints and papers can form a continuum for fast and reliable research communication.
In times of limited funding, the pressures to publish in a subset of journals can increase dramatically. I will discuss the challenges this poses to the publication process in the context of reproducibility and scientific integrity. I will discuss how a metrics centric research assessment process can undermine the quality of the research process, highlighting the San Francisco Declaration for Research Assessment (DORA) and other initiatives.

Abstract: Gene regulation and metabolism lie at the heart of most biological processes. Both are accomplished by complex networks harboring hundreds of nodes and thousands of edges. We study these networks and the interactions between them mainly in the nematode C. elegans, because it is amenable to high-throughput, large-scale genetics and genomics. In addition, we study interspecies network interactions between C. elegans and bacteria, that may help illuminate interactions between mammalian intestinal cells and the gut microbiota.

Abstract: The 3D organization of the genome is critical for gene regulation. I will present three examples where sex chromosomes can serve as powerful models to study the folding of chromosomes in general, to identify cis-elements and proteins involved and to determine how chromosome organization and gene regulation are mechanistically linked.

Abstract:
Synapses are perhaps the most numerous computational elements within neural circuits. The process of chemical transmission can transform neural signals and, because synapses are plastic, these transformations can be altered over different time-scales to adjust the input-output relation of the circuit as a whole. I will describe experimental strategies that allow the synaptic basis of neural circuit function to be studied in vivo by imaging of genetically-encoded reporters. I will illustrate how these reporters can be used to analyze the synaptic processing of visual information in the retina of zebrafish. These strategies are revealing how the visual signal is first converted from an analogue format into spikes, as well as the synaptic changes that alter the input-output relation of the retinal circuit. In particular I will describe how plasticity of excitatory and inhibitory synapses can cause simultaneous increases and decreases in the gain of neural responses within distinct microcircuits of the inner retina. The general picture that emerges is one in which plasticity of synapses leads to dynamic changes in the encoding of visual stimuli.

Abstract: We work at the interface of systems biology and molecular mechanism. On one hand we develop and utilize high-throughput quantitative approaches that reveal functional interactions between genes at a whole cell level. On the other hand, we zoom into these networks to understand how different functional modules are interconnected, often at a detailed mechanistic level. Here I will present how we use such approaches to shed light into gene function and pathway organization, to understand the action of drugs and their interplay when combined, and to probe how protein machineries operate at the bacterial cell envelope- how they are organized, how they coordinate their actions and how the cell senses when they are malfunctioning. We have also recently moved our approaches to the host-pathogen interface and the dynamic microbial communities formed in our gut. Our main goals are to: a) elucidate pathways Salmonella uses to hijack its host machinery and b) to probe how gut microbial communities are formed, how they react to nutrition and pharmaceuticals, and how their composition and characteristics affects our health.

Abstract: Neuropathic pain arises as a consequence of excessive excitability within sensory neurons. There has been significant progress over the last decade in understanding the molecular basis by which sensory neurons transduce and subsequently transmit noxious (ie. tissue damaging) stimuli giving rise to the sensation of pain. Over this same period we have recognized that mutations in such ion channels can result in primary pain disorders in humans providing great insight into the genetics of pain. An excellent example is the voltage gated ion channel NaV 1.7. Loss of function mutations in this ion channel result in congenital inability to experience pain and gain of function mutations can cause a number of distinct neuropathic pain disorders including erythromelalgia, paroxysmal extreme pain disorder and small fibre neuropathy. The fact that mutations in such channels can cause monogenic pain disorders makes them attractive analgesic drug targets and we are seeing a number of therapeutics being developed on this basis. Given that spontaneous activity is critical for the induction and maintenance of peripheral neuropathic pain we are now exploring techniques to reversibly silence sensory neurons. We have found that an engineered glutamate gated ion channel (which no longer responds to glutamate but is activated by Ivermectin) is very effective at electrically silencing sensory neurons both in vitro and in vivo. I will discuss how this can be used as a translational tool to reverse pain related hypersensitivity in animal models of neuropathic pain.

Abstract: DNA methyltransferase 3a (DNMT3A) has recently emerged as an important tumor suppressor in hematologic malignancies, and its ablation in mouse hematopoietic stem cells inhibits differentiation. We will describe the use of DNMT3A knockout mice to study its role in myeloid and lymphoid malignancy development and its function in maintaining global DNA methylation. The role of DNMT3A mutations in intercellular competition in the context of aging will also be discussed.

Friday, 19 May 2017, 11:00Add to calendarStructural dynamics of the breast cancer genome in response to hormonesMiguel Beato, Gene Regulation, Stem Cells and Cancer Program , Centre de Regulació Genòmica (CRG), The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology, Barcelona , Spain, , SpainHost: Cornelius Gross / Irene BozzoniSapienza Università di Roma - Aula Odeion - Museo dell'Arte Classica - P.le Aldo Moro, 5 - Roma, EMBL Monterotondo
Abstract: Eukaryotic cells decode environmental information via receptors and signalling networks that converge in the cell nucleus to adjust an integrated gene expression response. We study the response of breast cancer cells to the steroid hormones estrogens and progesterone (Pg) acting via their respective receptors (ER and PR, respectively) to decipher the underlying molecular mechanisms.

The precise organization in nucleosomes of the DNA sequences recognized by PR is a requisite for receptor binding and the initiation of chromatin remodelling leading to displacement of histones H1 and H2A/H2B. Remodelling depends on receptor-associated enzymes, including histone modifying enzymes and ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers, as well as activated PARP1, which uses the NAD+ synthesized by NMNAT1 in the cell nucleus to synthesize large amounts of Poly-ADP-Ribose (PAR). These epigenetic processes are required for chromatin remodelling and the rapid regulation of thousand of genes leading ultimately to cell proliferation in response to hormone.

In addition to nucleosomes, higher levels of genome organization also participate in hormone action. The conserved partition of the genome in consecutive topological associating domains (TADs) contributes to coordination of the hormonal response. Hormone regulated genes tend to segregate into TADs that respond as a whole with either activation or repression of transcription. Genes in one TAD can be all activated by one hormone and all repressed by another hormone. Thus, TADs behave as regulons in the response of cells to external signals. High-resolution Hi-C data reveal the role of dominant enhancers in organizing the differential hormonal response within TADs.

The extensive chromatin remodelling observed in response to hormones requires the transient accumulation in the cell nucleus of large amounts of PAR, which is subsequently degraded to ADPR. A fraction of this ADPR is converted to ATP in the nucleus by NUDIX5 in the presence of PPi. NUDIX5 is a homodimer known to catalyse the hydrolysis of ADPR to AMP and R-5-P, but in response to hormone NUDIX5 is dephosphorylated at T45, leading to a conformational change of the homodimer that enables it to catalyse the reaction of ADPR with PPi to generate ATP and R-5-P. The ATP generated in the cell nucleus is essential for chromatin remodelling and gene regulation by estrogens or progesterone, as well as for DNA damage repair. NUDIX5 is overexpressed in breast cancers and is a marker for poor prognosis. Thus, it represents a novel target for breast cancer management.

Abstract: This talk focuses on how the social brain, that is the network of brain regions involved in understanding others, develops during adolescence. Social cognitive processes involved in navigating an increasingly complex social world continue to develop throughout human adolescence. Areas of the social brain undergo significant reorganisation in terms of structure and function during the second decade of life, which possibly reflects a sensitive period for adapting to the social environment. The changes in social environment that occur during adolescence interact with increasing executive functions, heightened social sensitivity and the developing social brain to influence a number of adolescent behaviours, including risk-taking, peer influence and self-consciousness.

Abstract: Why do we care about preserving biodiversity? At the beginning of the 21st century biodiversity has come to be seen as an intrinsic scientific and cultural value. In other words, biological diversity the sheer multiplicity and heterogeneity of living things is now understood to have an inherent value that is not reducible to the utilitarian or aesthetic worth of any particular individual species: the value of diversity is diversity itself. Extinction plays a central role in this understanding of biodiversity, since diversity is something that is understood to be fragile and tenuous, constantly endangered by the threat of loss. Whereas most historians who have examined this phenomenon have placed the modern biodiversity movement in the context of a history of conservation biology and endangered species protection, I want to frame it in a new perspective. This talk will examine the influence of biological theories about the nature and dynamics of extinction and especially mass extinction on the current valuation of biological diversity. I will focus particularly on the ways that new understandings of extinction in the past for example, the extinction of the dinosaurs have converged with scientific and cultural anxieties about the present the specters of global warming, nuclear war, and biodiversity loss. I will argue that this new model of extinction has played a prominent conceptual and rhetorical role in debates surrounding the current biodiversity crisis, which I will examine in critical historical perspective.
