    Biobank research and genomic information are changing the way we look at health and medicine. Genomics challenges our values and has always been controversial and difficult to regulate. In the future lies the promise of tailored medical treatments and pharmacogenomics but the borders between medical research and clinical practice are becoming blurred. We see sequencing platforms for research that can have diagnostic value for patients. Clinical applications and research have been kept separate, but the blurring lines challenges existing regulations and ethical frameworks.Then how do we regulate it? This book contains an overview of the existing regulatory landscape for biobank research in the Western world and some critical chapters to show how regulations and ethical frameworks are developed and work. How should international sharing work? How design an ethical informed consent? An underlying critique: the regulatory systems are becoming increasingly complex and opaque. The international community is building systems that should respond to that. According to the authors in fact, it is time to turn the ship around. Biobank researchers have a moral responsibility to look at and assess their work in relation to the bigger picture: the shared norms and values of current society. Research ethics shouldn?t only be a matter of bioethicists writing guidelines that professionals have to follow. Ethics should be practiced through discourse and regulatory frameworks need to be part of that public discourse. Ethics review should be then not merely application of bureaucracy and a burden for researchers but an arena where researchers discuss their projects, receive advice and practice their ethics skills.

    Population geneticists have used genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) datasets to investigate the demographic history of humans and to identify regions of the human genome subject to selection. While some general statements can be made about genome as a whole, every genomic locus has its own evolutionary history. The work contained in this dissertation is aimed at elucidating this history for two particular SNP subsets. The first two chapters explore the effects of selection on the X chromosome. Chapter 1 presents evidence that the X chromosome is more frequently a target of selection than the autosomes and identifies regions of the chromosome where selection may have acted. Chapter 2 explores the evolutionary history of one of these regions in depth through haplotype analyses. Chapter 3 investigates the role of selection in the evolution of SNPs with phenotypic associations and finds evidence for selection on SNPs associated with pigmentation, blood pressure, autoimmune disease, and infectious disease susceptibility. Overall, this work as a whole reinforces the conclusion that natural selection acts unevenly throughout the genome and presents evidence for selection on two subsets of genome-wide SNP datasets: X-linked SNPs and SNPs with phenotypic associations.

    Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer worldwide. Survival rates for the most common histological subtype, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), have remained 15% over the past several decades. New molecular understandings and treatments are required to advance NSCLC patient care. Here we use several gene expression-based methods to uncover novel dependencies within NSCLC. First, we use cross-species functional genomics to identify TCEB1 (Elongin C) as a novel synthetic lethal partner with mutant KRAS. Secondly, we use gene expression meta-analysis to identify PTK7 as a survival gene in a subset of lung adenocarcinoma, the major type of NSCLC. Our work demonstrates the utility of analyzing gene expression data sets to expose functionally relevant genes within NSCLC, which may lead to effective therapies.

    Emerging evidence indicates that the Gadd45 family of genes play a unique and critical role as sensors of stress, including genotoxic, physiological and oncogenic stress. The stress response Gadd45 family of genes (Gadd45a, Gadd45b & Gadd45g), discovered by Dr. Liebermann and other researchers, encode for small (18 kd) nuclear/cytoplasmic proteins).These genes are rapidly induced by a wide variety of endogenous and exogenous stress stimuli. In spite of marked similarities, Gadd45 genes are regulated differently & exhibit functional diversity. Gadd45 are implicated in cell cycle arrest, DNA demethylation & repair, apoptosis, cell survival, genomic stability, inflammation, & in response to physiological and oncogenic stress. Functions of Gadd45 genes are mediated by protein-protein interactions that modulate structure/function of other cellular proteins implicated in cell cycle regulation and the response of cells to stress; these interactions vary depending upon the biological setting including cell type, developmental stage and stress/stimulus. Protein partners include cdc2/cyclinB1, p21, the p38/JNK stress induced kinase pathways, and PCNA/histones. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive picture of the unique global role Gadd45 genes play as stress sensors & the molecular pathways involved.

    The book Gamete and Embryo-fetal Origins of Adult Diseases introduces various diseases resulting from the abnormal gametogenesis and embryo development, which manifests as growth retardation, birth defects, or increased susceptibility to chronic metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer in childhood and adult life, even fertility disorders and the risk of transgenerational transmission. Six common kinds of these diseases are discussed in separate chapters. The authors explore the connections between these diseases and epigenetic reprogramming, rapid cell differentiation and organ formation and environmental influences, including assisted reproductive technology and adverse intrauterine environments. With a summary of findings on the causes and progression of adult diseases at the phase of gametogenesis and embryo development, this book provides insights into the pathogenesis of disease and aids in the treatment and prevention of disease, meeting the requirement for improving the quality of the newborn population, and effectively preventing and curing major diseases at an early stage. This book offers new perspectives and will be an enlightening resource for obstetricians, paediatricians, epidemiologists, endocrinologists and sanitarians.
  • Siddhartha Mukherjee.
    The Pulitzer Prize-winning author draws on his scientific knowledge and research to describe the magisterial history of a scientific idea, the quest to decipher the master-code of instructions that makes and defines humans; that governs our form, function, and fate; and that determines the future of our children. The story of the gene begins in earnest in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where Gregor Mendel, a monk working with pea plants, stumbles on the idea of a "unit of heredity." It intersects with Darwin's theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms postwar biology. It invades discourses concerning race and identity and provides startling answers to some of the most potent questions coursing through our political and cultural realms. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, gender identity, sexual orientation, temperament, choice, and free will, thus raising the most urgent questions affecting our personal realms. Above all, the story of the gene is driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds--from Mendel and Darwin to Francis Crick, James Watson, and Rosalind Franklin to the thousands of scientists working today to understand the code of codes. Woven through the book is the story of Mukherjee's own family and its recurring pattern of schizophrenia, a haunting reminder that the science of genetics is not confined to the laboratory but is vitally relevant to everyday lives. The moral complexity of genetics reverberates even more urgently today as we learn to "read" and "write" the human genome--unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children and our children's children.--Adapted from dust jacket.

    "Gene expression studies merge three disciplines with different historical backgrounds: molecular biology, bioinformatics, and biostatistics. This book tears down the omnipresent language barriers among researchers of these different backgrounds by explaining the entire process of a gene expression study from conception to interpretation. It covers important technical and statistical pitfalls and problems, helping not only to explain concepts outside the domain of researchers, but to provide additional guidance in their field of expertise. The book also describes technical and statistical methods conceptually with illustrative examples, enabling those inexperienced with gene expression studies to grasp the basic principles"--Provided by publisher.

    In humans, the hormones insulin and glucagon are the principal regulators of blood sugar homeostasis. In the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, the regulation of circulating sugar levels is similarly controlled by insulin-like and glucagon-like factors. Insulin signaling in Drosophila has been studied intensively; by contrast, relatively little is known about the genetic regulation of Drosophila Adipokinetic hormone (Akh), the polypeptide with glucagon-like functions, and the corpora cardiaca (CC) cells that produce Akh. Here I describe the use of an enhancer trap screen that led to the identification of a novel regulator of CC function, the homeodomain transcription factor unplugged (unpg). Knocking down unpg in the CC cells results in decreased Akh transcript levels and reduced circulating glucose and trehalose. I also describe the identification of a number of enhancer traps that are capable of driving GFP expression in the CC cells, suggesting a role for the associated genes in CC cell function. As in human diabetes, insulin deficiency in the fruit fly elevates circulating glucose levels and impairs triglyceride regulation. Reduced insulin signaling in Drosophila also increases expression of the adipokine Akh, a phenotype reminiscent of the excessive glucagon signaling that accompanies human diabetes. Thus, it remains unclear if insulin deficiency or adipokine excess is the primary basis for diabetic phenotypes in flies lacking insulin-producing cells. Here I show that simultaneous targeted ablation of cells producing Drosophila insulin and adipokinetic hormone results in hypoglycemia. Mutation of the gene encoding the Akh receptor (Akhr) reduces circulating glucose levels in adult Drosophila lacking insulin, arguing that excessive Akh signaling is the basis for hyperglycemia in insulin-deficient flies. Simultaneous attenuation of insulin and Akh synthesis also produced hypoglycemic flies. Similar approaches revealed triglyceride imbalance from insulin deficiency requires Akh. Thus adipokines like Akh, not insulin, may be the principal hormonal regulators of glucose and lipid balance in some non-mammalian animal classes and states of insulin deficiency.

    Since 2009, a revolution has been witnessed in Alzheimer's Disease genetics. New genetic links are being discovered at an unprecedented pace and our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration have taken a quantum leap forward. This book provides a thorough description of the genes that have been implicated in the aetiology of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) based on evidence of genetic association. These "AD susceptibility genes" are described both in their genomic and cellular context, as well as with respect to their known or suspected molecular functions. Although these genes are not sufficient to explain all of the genetic contributions to LOAD, they represent the best replicated set of genes to date. Undoubtedly the list will grow as more advanced genomic approaches towards the identification of novel LOAD genes progresses.

    Described as the earliest, simplest life forms, with unlimited metabolic versatility, bacteria are ideally suited to answer some very fundamental questions on life and its processes. They have been employed in almost all fields of biological studies, including Genetics. The whole edifice of science of Genetics centers around three processes: the generation, expression, and transmission of biological variation, and bacteria offer immediate advantages in studying all the three aspects of heredity. Being haploid and structurally simple, it becomes easy to isolate mutations of various kinds and relate them to a function. The availability of such mutants and their detailed genetic and biochemical analyses lead to a gamut of information on gene expression and its regulation. While studying the transmission of biological variation, it is clear that unlike their eukaryotic counterpart, a more genetic approach needs to be employed. Transmission of genetic information in most eukaryotic organisms rests on sexual reproduction that allows the generation of genetically variable offspring through the process of gene recombination. Even though bacteria show an apparent preference for asexual reproduction, they too have evolved mechanisms to trade their genetic material. In fact, bacteria not only could acquire many genes from close relatives, but also from entirely distant members through the process of horizontal gene transfer. Their success story of long evolutionary existence will stand testimony to these mechanisms. While teaching a course on Microbial Genetics to the post-graduate students at Delhi University, it was realized that a book devoted to bacterial genetics may be very handy to the students, researchers, and teachers alike. A strong foundation in genetics also helps in comprehending more modern concepts of molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology, always a favorite with the students and researchers. Planning the format of the book, emphasis has been laid on the generation and transmission of biological variability. The omission of expression part is indeed intentional because lots of information is available on this aspect in any modern biology book. The contents are spread over seven chapters and the text is supported with figures/tables wherever possible. The endeavor has been to induce the readers to appreciate the strength of bacterial genetics and realize the contribution of these tiny organisms to the growth of biological sciences as a whole and genetics in particular.

The book is aimed at all students of bone biology and genetics, and with this in mind, it includes general introductory chapters on genetics and bone biology and more specific disease-orientated chapters, which comprehensively summarize the clinical, genetic, molecular genetic, animal model, functional and molecular pathology, diagnostic, counselling and treatment aspects of each disorder. Saves academic, medical, and pharma researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on a broad range of genetic bone issues, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles. Provides a common language for bone biologists and geneticists to discuss the development of bone cells and genetics and their interactions in the development of disease. Researchers in all areas bone biology and genetics will gain insight into how clinical observations and practices can feed back into the research cycle and will, therefore, be able to develop more targeted genomic and proteomic assays. For those clinical researchers who are also MDs, correct diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of bone diseases depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease.

    In the past four years, many genetic loci have been implicated for BMI from the outcomes of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), primarily in adults. Insulin-induced gene 2 (INSIG2) was the first locus to be reported by this method to have a role in obesity, but replication attempts have yielded inconsistent outcomes. The identification of the second locus, the fat mass- and obesity-associated gene (FTO), has been more robustly observed by others. Studies from both FTO knock out and FTO over expression mouse model support the fact that FTO is directly involved in the regulation of energy intake and metabolism in mice, where the lack of FTO expression leads to leanness while enhanced expression of FTO leads to obesity. Along with numerous other studies, a number of genetic variants have been established robustly in the context of obesity, giving us fresh insights into the pathogenesis of the disease. This book provides a comprehensive overview of efforts aimed at uncovering genetic variants associated with obesity, which have been particularly successful in the past 5 years with the advent of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The Genetics of Obesity covers this state of the art technology and its application to obesity in great detail. Topics include genetics of childhood obesity, genetics of syndromic obesity, copy number variants and extreme obesity, co-morbidities of obesity genetics, and functional follow-up of genetic variants.

    Recent advances in technology have unleashed a breathtaking amount of genome sequence data. My doctoral research builds on the resulting opportunities of whole genome sequence data and analysis in a quest for gaining new insights into molecular evolution, and in particular molecular evolution and adaptation of proteins. Chapter One of my dissertation is focused on methodology, specifically the impact that the choice of multiple sequence alignment procedure has on the inference of positive selection. I find that selection inference is highly dependent on the choice of alignment procedure. Furthermore, in the case of the 12 Drosophila genomes proteins and commonly used alignment programs, most of the inferences are false positives, caused by misaligned codons. These results put into question the reliability of some of the previously reported conclusions on adaptation in these proteins, as well as in similar studies of other species. The second chapter relates these alignment errors to specific regions in the proteins, the so-called intrinsically disordered protein regions. Disordered protein regions do not have a stable fold in native physiological conditions, and therefore do not fit the standard assumptions made in codon-based evolutionary analyses about structure and folding constraints. My findings indicate that in the case of the false-positively inferred positively selected sites, as well as in general throughout the alignments, most alignment errors and ambiguities originate in disordered regions. Indels in the alignments also appear predominantly in those regions. Examination of widely used alignment benchmarks indicates that disordered regions have mostly been excluded from the benchmarks. I discuss implications of these findings for both evolutionary research and development of alignment software. The last chapter of my dissertation characterizes the evolution of disordered regions in Drosophila. I survey protein substitution and polymorphism patterns in D. melanogaster and D. simulans, and find that relative to structured regions, disordered ones have multiple-fold higher rates of replacement polymorphisms and substitutions, as well as fewer rare polymorphisms. Structured regions appear to be significantly more impacted by both positive and purifying selection, contrary to indications from previous reports where within-species data was not incorporated in the analysis.

    RNA plays an important role in regulating cellular gene expression. Its ability to fold into secondary and tertiary structures underlies the RNA's ability to function and be processed in every step of its life cycle, including transcription, splicing, cellular localization, translation and turnover of the RNA. However, structural information for most RNAs in the cells, such as mRNAs, is missing due to the low throughput nature of RNA structure probing and the traditional difficulty of probing long RNAs, making it difficult to assess the full impact of RNA structure in biology. To fulfill the need to understand the roles of RNA structure on a global scale, we developed for the first time a novel strategy termed Parallel Analysis of RNA Structure (PARS), which couples structure-specific probing to high throughput sequencing to simultaneously generate secondary structures for thousands of RNA species at single nucleotide resolution. Applying PARS to the yeast transcriptome identified distinct structural organization of mRNAs, including a three nucleotide periodicity in the coding region and increased accessibility near the start codon for translation. Furthermore, we demonstrated that PARS can be used to study dynamics by probing the yeast transcriptome across a temperature gradient to identify functional structural regions that have differential propensity to melt. PARS can be readily applied to different organisms and conditions, to identify structural determinants that regulate gene expression changes across organisms in different cellular states. This expansion of RNA structural data will likely enhance our understanding of how RNA structure translates into RNA function in cellular systems, as well as open doors to potentially targeting these structural elements to regulate cellular behavior in diseases.

    Genome instability has long been known to be a hallmark of cancerous cells, but the cellular causes and consequences of such instability are still not fully understood. Mutations, translocations, DNA rearrangements, as well as chromosomal loss can all result in the loss of genomic integrity. To prevent the disruption of cellular homeostasis due to DNA damage accumulation, cells contain pathways to sense and respond to DNA damage including cell cycle checkpoints and numerous DNA repair processes, collectively known as the DNA damage response (DDR). Mutations in many of the genes involved in the DDR are linked to several diseases, including premature aging, neurodegeneration and cancer. These signaling pathways are especially critical during DNA replication when the DNA is unwound and vulnerable to processing. Here, the cell relies on the S-phase checkpoint to sense DNA damage at the sites of replication forks and to facilitate a number of downstream pathways to maintain genomic stability. These processes include blocking further origin firing, facilitating DNA repair, preventing cell cycle progression, and stabilizing stalled replication forks. Here, two genome-wide siRNA screens were employed to identify additional genes involved in genome stabilization by monitoring phosphorylation of the histone variant H2AX, an early mark of DNA damage. The first screen looked at H2AX phosphorylation that occurred simply by individual protein depletion, and the second screen used a low level of a replication inhibitor, aphidicolin, to specifically identify genes that were needed to prevent DNA damage during S-phase, potentially due to the loss of replication fork stabilization mechanisms. While the results from the second screen are still undergoing further characterization, we did discover hundreds of genes whose down-regulation led to elevated levels of H2AX phosphorylation in the absence of any external stress. From this gene set, we identified many gene networks that were significantly enriched amongst our screening hits as well as several intriguing individual genes that were chosen for follow up study. These included genes involved in mRNA processing, the pathology of Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome, and the histone methyl transferase protein, Set8.

    Adaptive evolution by natural selection is largely responsible for the variety of forms and functions observable in the natural world. Identifying the genetic changes underlying adaptive evolution of organisms to their environment is of fundamental importance in understanding the history of life, as well as predicting how organisms will evolve to novel environments in the future. Experimental evolution of microbes in the laboratory provides a precisely controlled environment for investigations into the genetic basis of adaptation, while also allowing for large population sizes and experimental replication, benefits that are often not available in natural populations. Recent technologies have enabled the identification of the genetic changes responsible for adaptive evolution genome-wide, giving us a genomic view of adaptation during evolution experiments. Here, I have added to our understanding of the genomic basis of adaptation by investigating how Saccharomyces cerevisiae adapts to limiting glucose environments during experimental evolution. Throughout this work, I utilize next- generation, whole-genome sequencing to identify the mutations responsible for adaptation. In Chapter 1, I investigate how genetic interactions define the fitness landscape, and find that very strong negative epistasis between two beneficial mutations creates a fitness valley, so each mutation effectively determines the evolutionary trajectory of adaptation. In Chapter 2, I take a step back and look more broadly at adaptation while asking the question: is there a general functional theme for the genomic basis of adaptation to limiting glucose? To facilitate answering this question in an unbiased manner, I develop a whole-population, whole-genome sequencing technique, and find that the theme of adaptation in the constant and predictable environment of the glucose-limited chemostat is for the yeast to lose function of signaling networks responsible for sensing environmental stimulus, effectively decoupling environmental sensing from response. In Chapter 3, in a collaborative project, we seek to understand the extent that genotypic convergence underlies phenotypic convergence by evolving genetically distinct yeast under different conditions. We find a single gene is recurrently mutated across most genetic backgrounds, suggesting that genotypic convergence plays a large role in adaptive evolution.

    Although the development of high-throughput techniques to quantify gene expression have enabled us to characterize genes that change in various conditions, identifying the regulators that drive these changes remains a challenging problem. Recent efforts to identify direct transcription factor targets provide a foothold to addressing the identification of regulators, by allowing inference of critical factors based on the expression patterns of their targets. However, success in this approach requires an improved ability to infer factor-responsive targets (those regulated by the transcription factor) from direct targets (those bound by the factor). By identifying factor-specific binding sites (i.e., those regions bound by the factor of interest but not by many additional random transcription factors), we found that the link between direct and functional targets was significantly improved -- e.g., although only 26% of significant HLH-1 binding sites correlated with altered expression when HLH-1 was over-expressed, over 40% of factor-specific significant binding sites did so. In the course of this work, we identified HOT (Highly Occupied Target) regions that were bound by more than 65% of factors assayed. Surprisingly, our analysis indicated that these regions were not artifacts of the target identification methodology. Rather, they instead indicate a potentially novel regulatory mechanism for expression of housekeeping genes, as genes associated with HOT regions were highly and ubiquitously expressed and essential for development. Next, we applied this approach to the study of aging. Although genome-wide microarray experiments in C. elegans have identified over a thousand genes with age-dependent expression, only a handful of transcriptional regulators are known to link altered lifespan with modulation of genes that change during wild-type aging. We describe an approach to infer potential regulators of aging and longevity by interrogating direct transcription factor targets generated by the modENCODE project. We identify nine factors with targets significantly enriched for altered expression with age, including three previously shown to modulate lifespan. We further show that for two additional factors, NHR-28 and NHR-76, strains in which these factors are over-expressed show increased lifespan, suggesting that these factors may represent additional links between age-dependent gene expression changes with longevity. This approach identified HOX co-factor unc-62 (Homothorax) as a developmental regulator that binds age-regulated transcripts and modulates lifespan. In the intestine (in which UNC-62 knockdown increases lifespan) we identify multiple activities: UNC-62 binds to and activates both intestine-expressed yolk protein genes that decline with age as well as neuronal-enriched genes that increase in intestinal expression with age. An alternatively spliced, tissue-specific isoform of unc-62 is expressed exclusively in the intestine and declines with age, providing a potential mechanism for distinct activities of UNC-62 between tissues and stages. Thus, UNC-62 provides a proof of principle for uncovering unexplored transcription factors effecting aging and longevity through integrated analysis of developmental regulatory targets.

    Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US and the third most recently linked to cancer deaths. The national annual incidence rate of colorectal cancer is approximately 148,000+, striking slightly more females than males. The lifetime risk of colorectal cancer is 5-6percent, however patients with a familial risk (with two or more first or second degree relatives) make up 20percent of the patients. Persons who carry genetic mutations linked to hereditary colorectal cancer are the most likely to develop the disease.

    The Saccharomyces cerevisiae deletion collection has revolutionized yeast genetics by allowing genome-wide deletion screens to be performed in pooled cultures. The inclusion of unique, 20-bp DNA sequences known as "tags" or "barcodes" in each strain allows all ~6000 yeast deletion mutants to be analyzed in a single culture by using a microarray to detect changes in tag abundance. Here we discuss improvements and extensions made to the pooled-yeast-deletion assay. This includes a redesign of the barcode array that is used for detecting the tags included in the deletion collection. Our analysis of this barcode array examines whether it is better to use available microarray surface area on a single feature for each probe, or to instead include multiple smaller features. It also covers aspects of data analysis such as the correction of hybridization defects and array saturation, tag-sequence repairs, and estimation of background hybridization. In addition to these microarray changes, we also examine the impact of experimental design on the quality of pooled growth data. Each step in both the experimental protocol and the data-analysis pipeline is examined for possible improvement. Finally, we discuss preliminary experiments testing the application of pooled fitness profiling to the study of epistasis. Data are shown that demonstrate the feasibility of a pooled-double-mutant fitness assay that is compatible with existing barcode array technology. This assay has the potential to become a valuable functional-genomics tool that may provide an improved understanding of pathway relationships in yeast.

    The unique post-transcriptional behavior of each mRNA is thought to be largely determined by features present in its molecular sequence, representing a type of RNA regulatory code. However, the details by which distinct regulatory outcomes are programmed into the sequences of different transcripts are mostly unknown. We set out to identify features of yeast mRNAs that influence their post-transcriptional fates. Using bioinformatic and in vitro selection approaches, we characterized several RNA recognition elements involved in mediating specific interactions with individual yeast RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). Most of the RNA elements we uncovered were associated with significant mRNA expression changes and were phylogenetically conserved in related yeasts, providing insights into the function and evolution of the corresponding interactions. We also analyzed RNA-protein interaction sites for the yeast Puf3 RBP by high-throughput sequencing under different growth conditions. These results provided high-resolution experimental evidence for Puf3 binding at consensus RNA elements in the transcriptome, and enabled detailed comparisons of individual interaction sites. Finally, we developed complementary methods for transcriptome-wide mapping of potential sites of RNA 2'-O-methylation. Application of these methods to the yeast transcriptome successfully recovered known sites of RNA modification and suggested that ribose methylation of functionally-related transcripts may occur and influence the regulation of endogenous yeast mRNAs. Overall, these results contribute to understanding of how RNA sequence features help to specify global differences in gene expression characteristics.

    As imaging technologies and approaches have evolved, the scope of certain imaging techniques has moved far beyond the production of purely illustrative images or appealing time-lapse movies to providing the scientist with a rich range of ways to measure and quantify the biological process and outcome of gene expression. In Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols, expert authors offer up-to-date approaches and protocols that scientists in the field have developed, which would benefit the broader scientific community. Divided in three convenient parts, this detailed book covers the output of a gene, namely the RNA molecules that are transcribed from the gene and the way by which these molecules can be tracked or quantified in fixed or living cells, protocols that focus on the gene, DNA, or chromatin, as well as a variety of ways by which nuclear processes intertwined with gene expression can be followed and quantified in living cells as well as approaches for studying several sub-nuclear structures found in eukaryotic cells. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and up-to-date, Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols will serve researchers working toward imaging in the context of complete organisms.

    MicroRNAs are an important class of short RNA molecules that regulate gene expression in diverse organisms. Despite their short history, extensive research on microRNAs has revealed how microRNAs are made, their regulatory mechanisms and functions in different biological processes. In addition, novel experimental techniques and computational algorithms have been developed to study microRNAs. Our knowledge of microRNAs is constantly evolving as newer studies turn up exceptions to canonical models established by early studies. This highlights how our understanding of microRNAs is far from complete and much work is still needed to investigate unexplored aspects of the microRNA world. The founding microRNAs, C. elegans lin-4 and let-7, have well-characterized heterochronic defects in mutant animals and their target genes have been genetically validated. Combined with powerful experimental tools available in C. elegans, the microRNA function of lin-4 and let-7 in developmental timing of C. elegans is an ideal in vivo model system for testing microRNA-related hypotheses. Using functional assays to evaluate lin-4 and let-7 rescue activities in transgenic animals, we have investigated several poorly understood aspects of microRNAs, from biogenesis to functional mechanism. In this work, we first demonstrated the cell autonomous nature of lin-4 in C. elegans temporal development. Through tissue/cell-specific expression of lin-4 and the use of tissue/cell-specific reporters and microRNA sponges, we have shown that lin-4 rescue activities were limited to sites of lin-4 expression, despite its broad endogenous expression and function in many tissues. Next, we showed that intron-containing microRNAs ("inc-miRs") are functional in C. elegans, raising the possibility that mature microRNAs need not be encoded as contiguous units in the genome. This result also highlights a blindspot in our current novel microRNA discovery methods that assume inc-miRs do not exist. Lastly, we investigated the partnership between microRNA "seed" and "non-seed" sequences in providing microRNA function during C. elegans temporal development. By assessing microRNA function in transgenic mutant animals expressing lin-4 or let-7 mutant microRNA, we found contrasting results between lin-4 and let-7. While the results suggest a functional requirement for lin-4 seed sequence, mutations in either let-7 seed or non-seed sequences provided similar levels of functional activities. Using C. elegans lin-4 and let-7 as an experimental model, this work has furthered our understanding on microRNA autonomy, microRNA biogenesis and functional partnership between microRNA seed and non-seed sequence.

    The pursuit of gene therapy to treat a wide-spectrum of diseases holds great promise, but its application in the clinic is still blocked by several barriers. Gene therapy approaches that rely on a virus to carry genetic material are plagued by problems with a host immune response and difficulty reaching therapeutic doses. Nonviral approaches have the advantage that delivering naked DNA does not illicit the same significant immune response and therapeutic levels are often initially easily attained. But, one prominent barrier to nonviral gene therapy is the lack of in vivo sustained expression from a foreign transgene. In the early stages after delivery, robust expression can be achieved from transgenic DNA, but this expression is very quickly and efficiently silenced, with loss of the desired effect of gene replacement. Our work took a two-step approach to further our understanding of how to create a better expression vector, both for gene therapy purposes as well as basic scientific goals of sustaining expression from delivered transgenic DNA. First, we studied whether we could manipulate and control the chromatin structure that a delivered gene adopts in vivo via nucleosome positioning signals on plasmid DNA in mouse liver. We developed a selective hybridization assay that allowed us to use a high-throughput sequencing approach to more rapidly screen the nucleosome occupancy and positioning of numerous constructs with varied DNA elements. We were able to transiently control the initial chromatin structure, but other forces in the cell soon overcame the thermodynamic preferences of nucleosome formation. We now believe that the use of nucleosome eviction elements may be a more promising approach: it will likely be more feasible to exclude nucleosome formation using rigid DNA sequences instead of permanently positioning a nucleosome using DNA sequence alone. Secondly, we gained a more fundamental understanding of the mechanism(s) responsible for the silencing of episomal (non-integrating) DNA constructs in mouse liver. We studied the differences between plasmid DNA and minicircle DNA, which was derived from a parental plasmid but lacked bacterial backbone sequences. At 6 weeks after delivery, plasmid DNA was effectively silenced but there was still active expression from the minicircle. We used high-throughput sequencing approaches to quantitate the levels of transcription and the enrichment of various histone modifications and RNA polymerase II (Pol II) on plasmid and minicircle. We found that Pol II appeared to stall at the transcription start site on the plasmid but was present at the 5' and 3' ends of the gene on the minicircle. This observation may explain the 28-fold higher level of transcript produced by the minicircle versus the plasmid. Though we saw enrichment of activating and silencing histone modifications on both plasmid and minicircle (likely due to our analysis of a population of cells which at any given point could have a construct that is actively expressed or silenced) we observed a striking abundance of a well-characterized histone modification associated with silencing on the plasmid and not on the minicircle. These results represent a contribution to the fields of gene therapy and chromatin biology that will help us move in the direction of achieving safe, therapeutic, and sustained expression of transgenic DNA.

    Structural Genomics consortia aim to determine the structure of proteins with novel folds. In order to interpret their biological significance, it is critical to annotate the functions of these structures. Most structures are solved by X-ray crystallography experiments and represent static snapshots of the molecules. Structure-based function prediction methods do not perform well when the snapshots fail to display the relevant functional conformations. We show that coupling structure-based function prediction methods to molecular dynamics simulations considerably improves their performance in locating calcium binding sites. Our approach can be easily extended to other functions of interest. In particular, we generated short- to medium- scale molecular simulation trajectories (1ns -- 10ns) using GROMACS, a software suite developed for creating molecular dynamics simulations. Gromos 43a5, Gromos 53a6, AMBER '96, AMBER '99SB, AMBER '03, and OPLS-AA force fields were used to generate trajectories for 11 pairs of PDB structures, HOLO and APO form for the presence of calcium ions in the structures (22 structrures in total). Extracting structures at various time points over the course of the simulations we created structural ensembles which inform about the dynamic nature of each of the simulation systems. Using FEATURE, a machine learning algorithm that evaluates the presence of enriched physico-chemical properties around a site of interest, we analyzed the structural ensembles for the presence of calcium binding sites. We devised a clustering algorithm which allowed for definitive determination of the similarity of the local environments around the points identified by FEATURE as potential calcium binding site centers in different structural ensembles for each of the 22 PDB structures. Our results indicate that short scale simulations with 2 or 3 different force fields generate sufficient structural diversity to allow for improved identification of calcium binding sites. Furthermore, inclusion of calcium ions in the simulation systems does not significantly improve the performance of FEATURE. This result highlights the need for improved force fields, such that the dynamic nature of calcium binding sites can be accurately reproduced.

    It has been proposed that allergic immune responses, like those mediated by type 2 immunity, evolved to protect the host from damage caused by environmental challenges, including toxins, xenobiotics, and helminth infections (1, 2). Despite some support for this hypothesis (3, 4), the underlying mechanisms by which type 2 innate responses orchestrate the regeneration of injured tissues remain largely unknown. Here, we demonstrate a requirement for type 2 innate immunity in regeneration of liver after partial hepatectomy and toxin-mediated injury. Injury to liver results in rapid recruitment of eosinophils, which secrete IL-4 to promote the proliferation of quiescent hepatocytes. Surprisingly, signaling via the IL-4R[alpha] in macrophages, which have been implicated in tissue repair (3-5), is dispensable for hepatocyte proliferation and liver regrowth after injury. Instead, IL-4 exerts its mitogenic actions by directly activating IL-4R[alpha] in hepatocytes. Our findings have thus uncovered an unexpected mechanism by which allergic type 2 innate immunity stimulates hepatocyte proliferation to promote liver regeneration.

    It's in Your DNA: From Discovery to Structure, Function and Role in Evolution, Cancer and Aging describes, in a clear, approachable manner, the progression of the experiments that eventually led to our current understanding of DNA. This fascinating work tells the whole story from the discovery of DNA and its structure, how it replicates, codes for proteins, and our current ability to analyze and manipulate it in genetic engineering to begin to understand the central role of DNA in evolution, cancer, and aging. While telling the scientific story of DNA, this captivating treatise is further enhanced by brief sketches of the colorful lives and personalities of the key scientists and pioneers of DNA research. Major discoveries by Meischer, Darwin, and Mendel and their impacts are discussed, including the merging of the disciplines of genetics, evolutionary biology, and nucleic acid biochemistry, giving rise to molecular genetics. After tracing development of the gene concept, critical experiments are described and a new biological paradigm, the hologenome concept of evolution, is introduced and described. The final two chapters of the work focus on DNA as it relates to cancer and gerontology. This book provides readers with much-needed knowledge to help advance their understanding of the subject and stimulate further research. It will appeal to researchers, students, and others with diverse backgrounds within or beyond the life sciences, including those in biochemistry, genetics/molecular genetics, evolutionary biology, epidemiology, oncology, gerontology, cell biology, microbiology, and anyone interested in these mechanisms in life.
