3D optical clearing, staining and imaging (CUBIC)

Organ or organism-level systems biology aims to identify and analyze cellular circuits in 3D. Tissue opacity however often prevents optical imaging of thick tissue samples (>>100’s of micrometers). A solutions to this problem is development of whole-organ or whole-organism tissue-clearing. In this talk I will review our advancements of our optical clearing approach CUBIC and its applications. Etsuo […]

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Ludovic Orlando, Tracking six millenia of horse selection

Prof. Ludovic Orlando defended his PhD in molecular genetics in 2003, twenty years after the first ancient DNA molecule was ever sequenced. Ten years later, his group sequenced the oldest genome, leveraging ultrashort DNA molecules preserved in a permafrost specimen for more than half-a-million years. Full professor at the Centre for GeoGenetics, Univ. of Copenhagen, Denmark, and CNRS research director at the University of Toulouse, his work is mainly focused on reconstructing the history of genomic and epigenomic changes underlying the domestication of the ‘noblest conquest of Mankind’: the horse. He will talk about: Tracking six millenia of horse selection

SciLifeLab seminar series-Campus Solna, Marcel Tijsterman, Mutational signatures and scars by DNA Repair

Prof. Marcel Tijsterman studied Chemistry at the Leiden University, specializing in Molecular Genetics. He received his PhD in 1999 studying “Repair analysis of UV-induced DNA damage at nucleotide resolution”. For his postdoctoral work, he joined the lab of Ronald Plasterk at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam, which moved to the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht in 2001. There he started his independent research on genomic instability and DNA damage responses. In 2009, he moved his research group to the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), where he was appointed professor in 2014. In 2017, he was also appointed professor of Genome Engineering at the Institute of Biology Leiden (IBL). He will talk about the origin of mutations in animals, plants and cancer patients and how error-prone DNA repair cause genomic scars in our DNA.
