Thursday, 12 November 2020, 16:00Add to calendarHow cell fate decisions are established and maintained by facultative heterochromatinOliver Bell, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, USAHost: Arnaud KrebsVirtual seminar, EMBL Heidelberg
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, 11 December 2020, 11:00Add to calendarLivestock, the Global Environment, and COVID-19: a reflection on Livestock Systems before and after the PandemicAlessandra Falcucci, Lead Geographic Information Systems analyst, Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model (GLEAM), Food & Agricultural Organisation of the UN, NOT SPECIFIEDHost: Lucia von BredowVirtual seminar, EMBL Heidelberg
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.
