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.

SciLifeLab Fellows seminar series: The silent Polycomb revolution – new roles for old faces

Oliver, Bell from the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) of the Austrian Academy of Science, Vienna will present an unexpected division of labour between different PRC1 and PRC2 complexes in epigenetic silencing. Transcriptional silencing by Polycomb group (PcG) proteins is a major paradigm for epigenetic inheritance from fly to human. The Polycomb Repressive Complexes PRC1 and PRC2 catalyse distinct chromatin modifications to enforce gene silencing.
