Abstract

The sea lamprey is an important model organism for investigating the evolutionary origins of vertebrates. As more vertebrate genome sequences are obtained, evolutionary developmental biologists are becoming increasingly able to identify putative gene regulatory elements across the bread...read more

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.

Embryonic Development: Enhancer/Promoter(Keystone)

During development and differentiation of an organism, accurate gene regulation is central for cells to maintain and balance their differentiation processes. Transcriptional interactions between cis-acting DNA elements such as promoters and enhancers are the basis for precise and balanced transcriptional regulation.This feed follows research on enhancer promoter communication in embryonic development.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Conserved Gene Regulation and CTCFL (Keystone)

Conserved gene regulation refers to regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. CTCFL is a specific element that plays a part in X-chromosome inactivation. It is thought to be incorrectly activated in some cancers. Find the latest research on conserved gene regulation and CTCFL here.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Enhancers & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Enhancers are short regions of the DNA which can be bound by activator or repressor proteins to affect transcription of a particular gene. This feed focuses on the role of enhancers in regulation of cell-type specific gene expression during development.

Gastrulation

Gastrulation is a phase early in the embryonic development of most animals, during which the single-layered blastula is reorganized into a multilayered structure known as the gastrula. Before gastrulation, the embryo is a continuous epithelial sheet of cells; by the end of gastrulation, the embryo has begun differentiation to establish distinct cell lineages, set up the basic axes of the body, and internalized one or more cell types including the prospective gut

Conserved Gene Regulation

Conserved gene regulation refers to regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. These elements include topologically associating domains (TADs) and cis-regulatory elements (CREs). Find the latest research on conserved gene regulation here.

CZI Human Cell Atlas Seed Network

The aim of the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) is to build reference maps of all human cells in order to enhance our understanding of health and disease. The Seed Networks for the HCA project aims to bring together collaborators with different areas of expertise in order to facilitate the development of the HCA. Find the latest research from members of the HCA Seed Networks here.

Enhancer Decommissioning (Keystone)

Enhancers are regions of DNA that can be bound by proteins to increase the likelihood of transcription. Follow this feed to discover research relate to enhancer decommissioning.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

Conserved Gene Regulation (Keystone)

Conserved gene regulation are specific regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. These elements include topologically associating domains (TADs) and cis-regulatory elements (CREs) and have specific roles in the genomic coding function. Find the latest research on FGF8 Locus Split-Hand/Foot Malformation Type 3here.

Enhancers in Development & Diseases (Keystone)

Enhancers are short regions of the DNA which can be bound by activator or repressor proteins to affect transcription of a particular gene. This feed covers the latest research on enhancer function in development and disease.
