Wnt/ß-catenin signaling controls cell reprogramming (and nucleosomes form clutches)

Bionanoscience Seminar, 08.05.2015 Speaker: Pia Cosma (Center for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona (Spain)) Author: Edgar Schönfeld Pia Cosma's research is focused on cell reprogramming. Her talk was divided into two major subjects that deal with cellular reprogramming: Wnt/ß-Catenin signaling and chromatin organization. Reprogramming can be achieved via nuclear transfer or direct reprogramming, which involves the introduction … Continue reading Wnt/ß-catenin signaling controls cell reprogramming (and nucleosomes form clutches)

Coordination of daughter strand synthesis

Single replication machines at work: The coordination of daughter strand synthesis By Karl Duderstradt (van Oijen lab, University of Groningen) One of the most important events a cell has to undergo before it will divide is DNA replication. In this event, the amount of genomic DNA is doubled by taking the two strands apart and … Continue reading Coordination of daughter strand synthesis
