Jose Onuchic: The three-dimensional architecture of the human genome: understanding the physical mechanisms controlling gene expression

Mon, Mar 11, 2019, 12:00 pm

In vivo, the human genome folds into a characteristic ensemble of 3D structures. The mechanism driving the folding process remains unknown. A theoretical model for chromatin (minimal chromatin model) that explains the folding of interphase chromosomes and generates chromosome conformations consistent with experimental data will be presented.

Massimo Vergassola: Waves and flows in the early embryogenesis of Drosophila melanogaster

Mon, Apr 8, 2019, 12:00 pm

Early embryogenesis of most metazoans is characterized by rapid and synchronous cleavage divisions. After fertilization, Drosophila embryos undergo 13 swift rounds of DNA replication and mitosis without cytokinesis, resulting in a multinucleated syncytium containing about 6,000 nuclei.
