Insights into Genomic Imprinting: Studying Parental-Specific Epigenomes in Plants

This webinar will discuss a project that sought to understand the parent-of-origin epigenetic mechanisms that regulate seed development in plants, with a particular emphasis on differentiating the maternal or paternal origin of epigenetics marks. Parental-specific epigenetic marks are established in the gametes and maintained after fertilization, resulting in parental epigenetic asymmetry. Epigenetic asymmetry causes parent-of-origin-specific gene expression, a phenomenon termed genomic imprinting. Imprinted genes play an important role in animal and plant development. In plants, genomic imprinting occurs in the seed, particularly in the endosperm, an ephemeral tissue that supports embryo growth similarly to the nourishing role of the mammalian placenta.

28th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Human Genetics (GfH)

Join us for the 28th annual meeting of the German Society for Human Genetics. The GfH, founded in 1987, is the primary professional membership organization for human geneticists in Germany. With more than 1000 professional members, the GfH Society brings a diverse group of researchers together including academics, clinicians, laboratory practice professionals, genetic counselors and others involved in or with special interest in human genetics. We will be hosting a Technical Workshop entitled Getting the Most out of RNA-Seq by Douglas Amorese.

Characterization of Gene Fusions in Distinct Subtypes of Melanoma

This webinar describes the characterization of gene fusions across distinct subtypes of melanoma. The majority of common sun exposure-related melanomas have high mutational burden and activating mutations in the BRAF kinase gene. In contrast, less common subtypes of melanoma not related to sun exposure (acral lentiginous and mucosal melanomas) have low mutation burden, generally lack BRAF mutations, and have increased frequency of genomic structural variants. Activating gene fusions in BRAF have been reported in melanomas lacking mutations in BRAF and other common melanoma driver genes, but gene fusions and their therapeutic potential have not been well studied across different subtypes of melanoma. To characterize gene fusions, Kasey Couts and colleagues at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus performed targeted RNA sequencing of 65 melanoma patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models representing different melanoma subtypes (sun-exposed and non-sun-exposed) and genotypes (with or without common driver mutations). They identified several kinase gene fusions in melanomas lacking other driver mutations and tested the therapeutic potential in pre-clinical models using specific small molecule inhibitors. During this webinar, Dr. Couts will describe the gene fusion targeted RNA sequencing screen and discuss the results, which include identification of an ALK fusion (EML4-ALK) occurring in a malignant melanoma. She also discusses the successful response to targeted inhibitors in melanomas with various kinase fusions. This webinar highlights the clinically significant finding of targetable gene fusions in both sun-exposed and non-sun-exposed subtypes of melanoma. Click here to register.
