Using novel ferronucleosides to study and regulate DNA replication in cells

Background. Replication of nucleic acid polymers like DNA is an essential process for all known forms of life. Furthermore, dysregulation and errors in DNA-replication are strongly linked with human diseases including cancer, as well as the process of cellular ageing. Read more

Analysis of signaling pathways underlying development of human haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs)

  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
Background. Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) give rise to the adult blood system and are broadly used for transplantation into patients who have blood disorders or cancers and require restoration of their blood system. Read more

Understanding the molecular basis of piRNA-directed DNA methylation in the mammalian germline

  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
In mammals, transposons are silenced throughout most of life by DNA methylation. The mammalian germline is derived from somatic cells early during development. Read more

How to build chromosome segregation machinery in meiosis and mitosis

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Genes must be passed on accurately from cell to cell and from parents to children.  Failure to do so can be a cause or contributing factor in human illnesses, such as cancer or reproductive/birth defects. Read more

Antiviral RNA-binding proteins

Most clinically important viruses have a genome composed of RNA or generate RNA intermediates during their replication. For this reason, the host cell has developed specialised RNA-binding proteins that detect the presence of the viral RNAs. Read more

Uncovering the basis of cellular self-regeneration

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Self-regeneration is a hallmark of all living cells and of life itself. Recent advances in bottom-up synthetic biology and mechanistic modelling now offer powerful tools to elucidate how cellular organisation gives rise to this key feature of living systems. Read more

Machine learning vs mechanistic models: how best to untangle biological principles?

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Our appetite for ever more detailed and complex data has made computation indispensable to biological research. Over the past decades, computational systems models that capture the mechanistic interplay between biological components, have brought major advances to ourunderstanding of the inner working of living cells.

Post-translational regulation of stress-responsive transcription dynamics in plants

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Precise regulation of gene expression is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene expression orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment. Read more

Synthetic-evolution: linking genomics to biophysics to understand the rules of life.

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
The genome of every organism encodes genes and regulatory elements required for building and maintaining cells in homeostasis. However, it is still unknown what is the minimal set of genomic elements necessary and sufficient for cellular life. Read more
