Proteome predicts and interprets the metabolome of the cell by means of artificial intelligence

Speaker: Aleksej Zelezniak, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg. A key obstacle in solving the genotype-phenotype problem represent metabolite concentrations, which so far are not predictable even when genome, transcriptome or proteome of a cell are known. By systematically creating precise proteomes of yeast gene-knockouts strains, we noticed that the absence of each protein kinase triggers a highly specific reconfiguration in the global network of enzyme abundance.

Speaker: Jamie Doudna Cate, Department of Molecular & Cell Biology, University of California Berkeley, USA. Abstract: Regulation of protein synthesis is fundamental to all aspects of eukaryotic biology by controlling development, homeostasis, and stress responses. The 13-subunit, 800-kDa eukaryotic initiation factor 3 (eIF3) organizes initiation factor and ribosome interactions required for productive translation. We are probing eIF3 function to help explain genetic evidence connecting eIF3 deregulation with tissue-specific cancers and developmental defects.

SciLifeLab Fellows seminar series: Imaging across space and time

Speaker: Silvio Rizzoli,University of Göttingen, Germany. One important aspect is generally missing from cellular analysis techniques: an imaging-based measurement of the turnover of the cells and tissues. Knowing only the average turnover of specific proteins, from conventional mass spectrometry analyses, cannot reveal any details on the turnover of specific neurons or synapses. For example, it is unclear whether the state of activity of a synapses is related to its turnover, or whether the lack of activity that is caused by synaptic disease translates into local changes in turnover, at the level of the synapses that are affected by the disease.

SciLifeLab Fellows seminar series: Non-coding RNA in cancer – snoRNAs and their host genes

Speaker: Anders Lund, BRIC, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Non-coding RNAs come in many sizes and functional categories. In his talk Anders will present his strategies towards unveiling the functionalities of non-coding RNAs. Specifically, he will focus on lncRNAs that host small functional RNAs, such as microRNAs and snoRNAs, and give examples pointing to important roles for these host lncRNAs in human diseases. Furthermore, he will outline his attempts to understand the dynamics of snoRNA-mediated ribosome modifications and how these dynamics may also be important in human diseases.

Speaker Sharon Wolf from Weizmann Institute of Science will speak about cryoSTEM tomography on bacteria and human cells. CryoSTEM tomography (CSTET) is a method for elucidating structure and elemental composition of vitrified cells, in regions up to around 1 micron in thickness. Because STEM imaging is an incoherent process, useful signal can be obtained from both elastically and inelastically scattered electrons, providing very efficient dose utilization.

The battle front in your gut – bacterial attack and host cell defense in the intestinal mucosa

The intestinal epithelium constitutes a single-layered barrier that separates the microbe-rich gut lumen from the body´s sterile tissues. However, pathogenic bacteria, such as Salmonella Typhimurium, can invade into and breach this barrier. Here, I will talk about bacterial attack, host tissue defense, and an act of cellular self-sacrifice in the protection against enterobacterial gut disease.
