Chromatin structure, regulation and plasticity dictate many of the nuclear processes, e.g. replication, transcription, cell cycle, protein dynamics, chromatin modifications, and more - all of which ultimately facilitate or repress changes in transcription, either locally or globally. Chromatin is the basic regulatory unit of life and the main scaffold for epigenetic regulation. As such, it controls developmental and functional states of all cells, including pluripotency and pluripotent stem cells. Differentiation of embryonic stem cells into specialized cells involves dramatic changes in gene expression patterns, tightly correlated with alterations in DNA and histone modification states and subsequent global changes in chromatin plasticity. In recent years, methods to study chromatin have dramatically improved and expanded to both single cells and genome-wide global approaches, allowing a systems-level understanding of epigenetic regulation. Here we bring together leading researchers to discuss recent topics on chromatin and epigenetic regulation in the context of stem cells and pluripotency, lineage choice, and more.

The Labchip GXII is based on a single sipper micro-capilary elctrophoresis system to rapidly characterize protein samples.
Protein samples (up to 384 in one run) are automatically stained, destained, electrophoretically separated and analyzed in just few seconds per sample!!!
Analysed data provides a full proteins profile: individuals protein concentration, molecular weight sizing, % purity, Glycans content and and Charge Variant analysis.
Only 2 µL sample is required.  Limit of detection – 0.4ng (ProteinExact kit)
DNA&RNA samples can be run as well using different chips & reagents. Labchip GXII is Replacing Agarose gels for PCR products separation, NGS libraries analysis, RNA purity and more…

EMBO Workshop on Genome Dynamics in Neurosceince and Aging Sunday, April 7, 2019 - 18:00 to Thursday, April 11, 2019 - 15:00

Herzliya

Genome stability, which is essential for cellular homeostasis, relies primarily on the DNA damage response network. Genome stability is also essential to the proper functioning of the nervous system, evidenced by the prominence of neurodegeneration in many genome instability syndromes. Recent evidence suggests a broader role of genome stability in human health, one that affects aging and common chronic morbidities. Genome Dynamics in Neuroscience and Aging (GDNA) is an interdisciplinary EMBO workshop bringing together researchers of the DNA damage response, neuroscience, aging, cell senescence, mitochondrial function, and metabolism to discuss the links between genome stability and these aspects of human physiology, and the impact of genome instability on them and on longevity.
