Abstract: Advances in biology rely on the development of novel advanced molecular probes, able to report on the dynamics of biomolecules in complex systems. In this talk, I will present our group’s current efforts on building innovative hybrid probes utilizing small-molecule fluorophores in combination with genetically encoded tags. Our approach, at the interface of synthetic chemistry and protein engineering, has the promise to overcome many limitations of currently available reporters.

Abstract: Elucidating mechanisms of human brain development is crucial for understanding human-specific cognitive abilities and neurodevelopmental disorders. Here, we used single-cell genomic technologies to characterize the cell type heterogeneity and developmental dynamics of cerebral organoids to understand early human brain development. We compared the differentiation trajectories of cerebral organoids over the entire course from iPSCs in humans with chimpanzees and macaques, and found that human neuronal development occurred more slowly. Human-specific gene expression changes could be linked with changes in chromatin accessibility. In addition, we developed a barcoded CRISPR-inducible lineage recording system coupled with single-cell transcriptomics, and applied it to cerebral organoids. We observed increased fate restriction over time, and found that iPSC clones accumulate in distinct brain regions. Our understanding of human brain development is far from complete, but the combination of cerebral organoid and single-cell genomic technologies has shown its potential to shed new light on these complex processes.

Tuesday, 3 November 2020, 15:45Add to calendarEngineering T cell circuits that can sense antigen density with an ultrasensitive threshold Rogelio Hernandez-Lopez, UCSF, USAHost: James Sharpe and Nicola GrittiVirtual Seminar, EMBL Barcelona
Abstract: T cells can be redirected to kill tumor cells via synthetic T cell receptors (known as chimeric antigen receptors or CARs). However, CAR T cells, while efficient at tumor killing, still lack the ability to discriminate cancer cells from normal tissue that share common surface proteins, known as antigens. This prevents widespread use of CAR T cells against several cancer types due to toxicity and potentially lethal side effects. I have approached this problem of antigen density discrimination by engineering T cell circuits that can sense antigen density with an ultrasensitive response. I will discuss the design of a two-step recognition-activation circuit that allows T cells to selectively kill cancer cells where the tumor associated antigen is overexpressed ~100 fold relative to normal cells, both in vitro and in vivo. Such a scenario is found in breast, ovarian and lung cancers, for example.

Abstract: Inactivation of tissue non-specific genes is required for establishment of cell fate identity. Selective targeting of heterochromatin modifications by pathways involving Polycomb goup proteins or Heterochromatin Protein 1 (HP1) enforces transcriptional silencing. In addition, readers and writers of heterochromatin modifications promote epigenetic feedback loops that propagate the silent state through replication and cell division and ensure integrity of tissues and organs. The precise mechanisms underlying initiation and maintenance of repressive heterochromatin domains are poorly understood. To gain insight, we have developed a synthetic approach to recapitulate facultative heterochromatin in mouse embryonic stem cells providing an entry point to discriminate between initiation and maintenance of gene transcriptional gene silencing.

Friday, 27 November 2020, 11:00Add to calendarTowards data-driven strategies to study context-specific cell signallingEvangelia Petsalaki , EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, UK, United KingdomHost: Jamie HackettVirtual seminar, EMBL Rome
Abstract: Our group aims to understand and describe the organisation principles of cell signalling that allow the diverse and context-specific cell responses and phenotypes. It is well established that signalling responses happen through complex networks. However, most signalling research still uses linear pathways as the ground truth. Moreover, signalling responses are highly dependent on context, such as tissue type, genetic background etc and therefore these static pathways are not always suitable. There is also a high bias in the literature towards kinases and pathways for which reagents and prior knowledge is readily available. This leaves a huge dark space in our understanding of cell signalling and significantly hinders studies of its general principles. Data-driven methods to study cell signalling using phosphoproteomics have typically been developed on transcriptomics data. Due to fundamental differences of these data types, including the sparsity of phosphoproteomics, these methods perform poorly on signalling network inference. Finally, large-scale essentiality datasets that can shed light on the context in which different signalling-related genes and pathways are crucial have thus far been severely underused in largescale omics data integrative efforts, likely due to their inaccessibility to non-expert users. In this talk I will present two projects where we try to mitigate some of the above issues. For the first one I will present a method for data-driven machine-learning-based approach that takes advantage of global phosphoproteomics datasets to predict kinase regulatory networks, including their direction and sign of regulation. Our predicted kinase regulatory network is able to recapitulate known signalling pathways and agrees with orthogonal validation datasets. We were able to provide predictions for a large fraction of the understudied kinase space and found that kinase regulatory networks are denser than previously suspected. For the second one I will present CEN-tools, an integrative webserver and python package, that allows users to navigate the contexts of different gene essentialities. I will demonstrate examples of its use in discovering new gene-gene relationships and important putative signalling targets for different cancers

Abstract: This talk will explore livestock, the global environment, and COVID-19, and will reflect on livestock systems before and after the pandemic. The sustainability of the livestock systems is the focus of growing public debate, extensively discussed in the media and increasingly on the agenda of high-level political meetings. Over the last 30 years, consumption of meat, milk and eggs in lower middle-income countries has more than tripled. Population growth, urbanisation, income gains and globalisation continue to fuel the “livestock revolution”. According to FAO projections, under a business-as-usual scenario, demand for meat will increase by a further 60% by 2030, compared to 2006, and by over 200% by 2050. This represents a big source of challenges and opportunities on how to reduce environmental impacts, while continuing to meet society’s needs.

Abstract: There is much concern about the public regard for standards and norms of evidence and anxiety that carefully assembled facts and data are becoming seemingly dispensable. In 2016, ‘post-truth’ officially entered the dictionary; in the years since, commentators have worried that societies are no longer interested in the carefully assembled data and conclusions of scientific inquiry. Across Europe, conferences have sprung up among research and regulatory bodies asking how to operate in a world of Facebook filter bubbles and alternative facts. Amid this anxiety, we are in danger of seeing only memes that reinforce it, of believing that people just hear what they are already disposed to hear, that there is no scope for persuasion and factual credibility is pointless. Sense about Science’s experience of working with the public tells a different story - in fact, many different stories, of the public interest in sound science and evidence. That interest in science and evidence is borne out in surveys: scientists are still trusted to tell the truth and are the only group to enjoy consistently strong public trust since the 1970s. In the UK, an Ipsos MORI 2016 poll found that 86% of people want the government to consult experts on complex subjects. Working with the public reminds us that monitoring and analysing are key to public empowerment and democratic accountability; and it expands our imagination about how researchers can collaborate with the public more effectively. Sense about Science's public-led, expert-fed approach has served up some interesting lessons for discussion. The question before the research world therefore is how to equip people to make sense of their natural and social systems: how can we truly embark on those journeys together, with the public and in the public interest?
