Mouse Genetics Course
This five-week intensive laboratory and lecture course covers the analysis of gene function at all levels: the gene and its product, the cell and its interactions, the embryonic tissues and the entire animal. This […]
ERC-2017-COG_BinD – Mitotic Bookmarking, Stem Cells and early Development
The goal of this project is to deliver a new theoretical framework to understand how transcription factors (TFs) sustain cell identity during developmental processes. Recognised as key drivers of cell fate acquisition, TFs are […]
Follicular growth and ovarian endocrine function
In mammals, ovaries contain a definite number of follicles, each containing a germ cell, the oocyte. The production of fertilizable ovocytes involves complex molecular, cellular, paracrine and endocrine mechanisms and requires a growth phase […]
Epiblast/Primitive Endoderm specification and differentiation during early mouse development
The mammalian preimplantation embryo is a model of choice to study these processes and derivation of stem cells from early embryos has generated a lot of interest for this period of development. Mammalian development […]
Inheritance of the pluripotency network’s activity
The preservation of pluripotency throughout cell division – self-renewal -, is strictly dependent on the highly efficient action of the pluripotency gene regulatory network. However, how TFs cope with replication and mitosis, two major […]
The epigenetic foundation of gene expression heterogeneity
Self-renewing ES cells display dramatic cell-to-cell variability in the expression level of key transcription factors such as Nanog. Whereas Nanog-positive cells self-renew efficiently, Nanog-negative cells are prone to differentiate. Although these two populations can dynamically inter-convert, very […]
Notch Activity Sensor (NAS) transgenic mouse line
Because of the various levels of regulation of the Notch pathway, its activity cannot be easily deduced from the expression profiles of its components. In order to visualize Notch activity in situ at the cellular level, […]
