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 […]

Swedish FTD Initiative Symposium

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder characterised by a large variety of genetic associations, underlying pathologies and clinical symptoms. As of today, there are no treatments available that have preventative and/or curative effects on the disease. Swedish FTD Initiative is a multidisciplinary consortium created in 2017 by the support of The Schörling Foundation, […]

Long-Read Sequencing Meeting

Long-read technologies (PacBio, 10x Genomics and Oxford Nanopore) become more and more popular in modern genomics due to their ability to resolve structural re-arrangements, copy number variations, repeat expansions, phase genomes, etc. These technologies have revolutionized the field of de novo genome sequencing and lead to the discovery of previously unknown genomic sequences that could not be previously sequenced by the short-read technologies. Other important applications are the whole-length transcript- and direct RNA sequencing that allows unprecedented precision in studies of alternative splicing (PacBio), RNA base modifications (Oxford Nanopore) and single-cell RNA sequencing (10x Genomics).
