- 2013 SpringerUri Gophna, editor."Although the phenomenon of lateral gene transfer has been known since the 1940s, it was the genomics era that has really revealed the extent and many facets of this evolutionary/genetic phenomenon. Even in the early 2000s with but a handful of genomes available, it became clear that the nature of microorganisms is full of genetic exchange between lineages that are sometimes far apart. The years following this saw an explosion of genomic data, which shook the "tree of life" and also raised doubts about the most appropriate species concepts for prokaryotes. This book represents the manyfold contributions of LGT to the evolution of micro and, to an extent, macroorganisms by focusing on the areas where it has the largest impact: metabolic innovations and adaptations and speciation."

- 2014 SpringerCharles C. Tseng, Xiaoli Yang.Learning Basic Genetics with Interactive Computer Programs is a comprehensive and interactive learning program that focuses on chromosome simulation and model building. It is intended to assist students in learning more about genetics with ease. The 11 modules of this program form an integrated system for learning the basic concepts of genetics. The program innovation lies in its unique content design that incorporates cognitive feedback and experiential learning through the novel use of interactive applications. Each of the modules is designed to enhance learning by simultaneously employing "eyes-on," "minds-on," and "hands-on" activities. Topics are motivated by questions, information is presented in simple terms, and concepts are clarified by interactive prompts. Used as a supplement to traditional lectures and textbook assignments, the program not only serves as a foundation upon which to build more complex and detailed topics, but as a tutor to clarify and guide when there is confusion. The software that accompanies this book has been shown to be an ideal tool for learning about genetics, which requires a combination of understanding, conceptualization, and practical experience.

- 2015 SpringerGil Atzmon, PhD editor.The release of the complete version of the human genome sequence in 2003 has paved the way for defining gene function and genetic background for phenotypic variation in humans and allowed us to study the aging process in a new light. This new volume results from that research and focuses on the genetic and epigenetic process of aging. While the interpretation of the genome data is still in its initial stages, this new volume looks at the evolving understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in cellular processes, gene function associated with complex traits, epigenetic components involve in gene control and the creation of hypothesis-free genome-wide approaches. Longevity Genes: A Blueprint for Aging explores the genetic and genomic elements that can maintain a long life such as DNA damage mechanisms, epigenetics and the way we can use this knowledge to generate customized treatments. It touches on some of the multidisciplinary approaches as well as genomic-wide association technology used to analyze complex traits. This book describes the hunt for genes affecting complex traits using a high throughput technology, with adequate consideration for the selection of an appropriate population, applications of statistical genetics and computational biology, and most importantly, considering phenotype-genotype association studies. Longevity Genes provides coverage of not only established aspects of genetics and aging, but also new approaches and perceptions in this important area of research.

- 2013Konrad J. Karczewski.Most human variation lies outside of coding regions, where molecular functions are more difficult to determine than for variants in coding regions. As most disease-associated variants lie in non-coding regions, characterizing the role of regulatory variation is crucial to understanding the molecular mechanisms of these diseases and methods to do so are currently limited. Recently, a number of research efforts, including the ENCODE project, have produced a wealth of data on transcription factor binding sites and other regulatory information, in addition to increasingly available whole genome sequence and transcriptomics data. These data will crucial to understanding the molecular basis of many diseases, but their scale and disparate nature, as well as high levels of noise, require clever informatics methods to integrate and properly apply this information. In this thesis, I describe methods to address some of the major informatics challenges to characterize the role of regulatory variants in phenotypes and disease. In particular, I have shown that I can (1) detect cooperativity among transcription factors using human variation data, (2) associate transcription factors to functional modules and thus discover new TF interactions and disease associations, (3) provide molecular mechanisms for disease-associated non-coding variants, and (4) explore regulatory functional mechanisms using long-range interactions in the human genome.

- 2012Xuyang Sun.Mammalian neurogenesis - an elagant process of producing extraodinarily diversified neuronal propulations - has been largely studied in the context of evoluationarily conserved signalling pathways and neurogenic transcription factors. Yet little is known about the roles of chromatin remodellers and regulatory RNAs, such as microRNAs, in the formation of neurons. We recently discovered that miR-9* and miR-124 instruct compositional changes of SWI/SNF-like BAF chromatin-remodelling complexes during murine nervous development, a process important for neuronal differentiation and function. Here I set out to directly test the neurogenic activity of these microRNAs in human non-neuronal cells. Together with Andrew Yoo, I showed that ectopic expression of miR-9/9* and miR-124 (miR-9/9*-124) in human dermal fibroblasts induces their conversion into neurons (chapter 2). Addition of neurogenic transcription factors such as NEUROD2, ASCL1 and MYT1L enhances the rate of conversion and the maturation of the converted neurons, whereas expression of these transcription factors alone without miR-9/9*-124 appeared ineffective. As a step closer to cell replacement therapy, I next showed that these microRNAs could directly convert human astrocytes into neurons, of which the subtype identity can be further biased by specfic neurogenic factors (chapeter 3). Collectively, these studies indicate that the genetic circuitry involving miR-9/9*-124 and BAF chromatin remodelling complex can have an instructive role in neuronal fate determination, and may form a neuronal ground state that can be further specified by different transciption factors and/or signalling pathways.

- 2013 SpringerAmit Singh, Madhuri Kango-Singh, editors.Undoubtedly, Drosophila melanogaster, fruit fly, has proven to be one of the most popular invertebrate model organisms, and the work horse for modern day biologists. Drosophila, a highly versatile model with a genetic legacy of more than a century, provides powerful genetic, cellular, biochemical and molecular biology tools to address many questions extending from basic biology to human diseases. One of the most important questions in biology focuses on: how does a multi-cellular organism develop from a single-celled embryo? The discovery of the genes responsible for pattern formation has helped refine this question. Drosophila eye model has been extensively used to study molecular genetic mechanisms involved in patterning and growth. Since the genetic machinery involved in the Drosophila eye is similar to humans, it has been used to model human diseases and homology to eyes in other taxa. This book will discuss molecular genetic mechanisms of pattern formation, axial patterning, growth regulation in Drosophila eye, and more.

Pfaff, Yves Christen, editors.In theoretical terms, sex differences in brain and behavior offer the possibility of fascinating scientific studies on a range of molecular phenomena such as DNA methylation, chromatin protein modification, non-coding DNA, resulting in important neuroanatomical and neurochemical effects. However, this general subject has been treated with much hyperbole. Historically, sex differences were assumed to be present where they did not really exist, e.g. with respect to mathematics, executive leadership, etc. etc. Under what circumstances do we really care about sex differences in brain and behavior? These circumstances concern human maladies whose diagnoses are much different between boys and girls, or between women and men. Prominent examples to be discussed today will include autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. The meeting will end with a consideration of effects of estrogenic hormones on the injured brain, and their roles as protective agents.

- 2011Jared William Wenger.The processes by which the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolizes carbon sources by both fermentation and respiration have been studied for more than a century. Yeast metabolism has been used both industrially, for the production of important molecules such as ethanol, and as a model for basic scientific research. Applied scientists have studied yeast metabolism to create and optimize novel metabolic phenotypes not naturally found in Saccharomyces yeasts. In parallel, basic scientists have used yeast as a model to understand fundamental processes such as evolutionary adaptation, as well as the pathways of carbon metabolism themselves. There are many unanswered questions in both of these fields, some of which I have addressed in this work. With respect to the industrial importance of yeast, I asked whether there are naturally existing Saccharomyces yeasts that can metabolize the five-carbon sugars important for lignocellulosic ethanol production (such as xylose), and, if so, what is the genetic basis for their phenotypes? Having characterized natural genetic variation in xylose metabolism, I also wanted to understand something more fundamental about how carbon metabolism can adapt, including the molecular nature of adaptations to selection on a limiting carbon source. Specifically, I asked what is the niche breadth of, and are there genetic trade-offs in, yeast that have been evolved under glucose-limitation? I have used a combination of classical genetics, physiology, and high-throughput genomics to answer these two questions. I have discovered novel xylose-utilizing Saccharomyces yeasts and have shed considerable light on the genetic basis for their phenotypes. In addition, I have discovered at least one trade-off for adaptation to limiting glucose, namely that amplification of the hexose-transporter genes HXT6 and HXT7 causes reduced fitness in carbon-rich environments. These two projects highlight two major spheres of Saccharomyces research, and they provide key answers to outstanding questions in both fields.

- Non-coding genome : lncRNA and enhancer function in epidermal homeostasis and melanoma drug resistance2013Dan E. Webster.Information encoded within the ~3 billion base pairs of the human genome is processed to coordinate diverse biological functions. While ~2% of the human genome is well characterized as coding for canonical proteins, the function of the vast majority of non-coding DNA is unknown (discussed further in Chapter 1). The central aim of this thesis has been to identify functional non-coding regions of the genome and determine their role in human epidermal biology. The epidermis, or skin, maintains a tight balance between its regenerative capacity and its function as a protective tissue barrier. Progenitor cells located in the basal layer of the epidermis continually self-renew, while epidermal cells that divide and migrate outwards engage a terminal differentiation program to form a barrier. Transcriptome profiling of this differentiation process led to the identification of the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) ANCR, which was then shown to regulate progenitor function of the epidermis (Chapter 2). A novel technology was developed to investigate the protein-binding partners of RNAs (Chapter 3), and this technique was used to uncover the functional significance of a second discovered lncRNA, TINCR, that regulates terminal differentiation of the epidermis in part by binding the protein STAU1 (Chapter 4). The most deadly cancer derived from the epidermis is malignant melanoma. While treatments targeting the mutated BRAF oncogene are initially effective against a subset of melanomas, drug resistance rapidly develops. A region of non-coding DNA was discovered that acts as a lineage-specific enhancer for the drug resistance gene, MET, and disruption of this enhancer by genome editing of < 7bp of DNA within an MITF motif can selectively block drug-induced MET expression and innate resistance to BRAF inhibition (Chapter 5). Taken together, this work demonstrates a framework for identifying functional non-coding RNA and DNA that regulate a diverse set of biological processes.

- 2011Mohammed Nazar AlQuraishi.The foundation of molecular analyses of chemical and biological phenomena is the energy potential, a mathematical description of the energy of every possible interaction in a molecular system. The accuracy of computational and laboratory studies of phenomena ranging from pharmaceutical drug interactions and protein folding to material phase transitions and thin film growth is often limited by the accuracy of these energy potentials. Currently, energy potentials are inferred using a mixture of theoretical modeling and experimental data. So-called "physical potentials" rely on theoretical models to specify the potential's mathematical form and use experimental data to fit few model parameters. In contrast, "statistical potentials", also known as knowledge-based potentials, fit many parameters to experimental data and use theoretical models for the expected statistics of interactions under randomness to infer a potential. In both approaches, theoretical models shape and constrain the inferred potential, resulting in a so-called parametric model. There are several drawbacks to this: (i) The a priori assumptions underlying the inferred potentials may be inaccurate. (ii) Substantial domain knowledge is required (often exceeding what is known). (iii) Potential modeling is lengthy and technically difficult. The theoretical development of some potentials has taken decades. To overcome these problems, potentials could in principle be determined strictly from experimental data without recourse to theoretical modeling by experimentally measuring the energies of all distinct interactions, resulting in a "de novo" energy potential. In practice, direct measurement of interatomic potentials has only been possible for the simplest systems, due to a combinatorial explosion in the number of possible interactions that renders experiment-based inference intractable. In this thesis, we develop a tractable methodology for the inference of de novo potentials that circumvents the experimental intractability barrier. Our methodology overcomes this barrier by synthesizing concepts from structural biology, statistical mechanics, and recent discoveries in information theory known as compressed sensing. The result is a non-parametric potential that does not require an a priori assumption of a theoretical model, overcoming a fundamental limitation of both physical and statistical potentials. To explore the utility and role that this new methodology can play in molecular analysis, we focus on an important and long-standing problem in biology: the sequence specificity of DNA-binding proteins to their DNA targets. We develop a method that uses energy potentials to predict the DNA binding sites of proteins. In the first part of the thesis, we use existing statistical potentials. We develop three novel enhancements of statistical potentials tailored specifically for the protein-DNA binding application. These enhancements exploit certain molecular features of protein-DNA binding, as well as the unique experimental data sets available in this domain, to improve the performance of statistical potentials in predicting protein-DNA binding. In the second part of the thesis, we introduce the notion of a de novo potential, i.e. an energy potential derived exclusively from experimental data, without relying on any theoretical modeling. We discuss previous challenges that have prevented the development of such non-parametric potentials, and then introduce our methodology for inferring de novo potentials. We first present a general methodology that is applicable to any domain of molecular interactions, then specialize our general methodology to the specific application of protein-DNA interactions. Using this specialized version, we infer a number of different protein-DNA energy potentials, and apply them to the problem of predicting the DNA binding sites of proteins. We show that our new method achieves near experimental accuracy for over half of the tests performed, significantly outperforming the state of the art in this field.
- 2011Eduardo Abeliuk.In the last decade remarkable technologies, such as high-density tiling arrays and high-throughput DNA sequencing have enabled whole-genome studies at an unprecedented scale and resolution. In this work I describe how we used these technologies to map novel genetic elements as well as regulatory features of the bacterium Caulobacter crescentus, a model species used for understanding the prokaryotic cell-cycle. I describe a dynamic programming algorithm I used to determine the location of 27 novel small RNA transcripts (sRNAs), several novel antisense RNA transcripts, as well as the accurate mapping of mRNA transcripts. Many of these predictions were validated biochemically. In addition, I describe how we coupled high-throughput transposon mutagenesis with statistical analysis to map all the essential genetic elements in the Caulobacter crescentus genome to 8 base-pair accuracy. We found that 480 out of the 3960 genes contained in Caulobacter's genome are essential for cell viability, as well as 3 out of the 27 novel sRNA that we had identified. Interestingly, there are 90 essential small intergenic DNA segments of unknown function. Finally, I describe the operon organization of Caulobacter's genome.
- 2012Badreddin Edris.Cancer is a disease that is characterized by uncontrolled cell proliferation and is the second leading cause of death in the industrialized world. Cancers can be broadly classified based on their cell type of origin: carcinomas arise from cells of the epithelium, leukemias and lymphomas arise from the cells of the hematopoietic system, and sarcomas arise from cells of the mesenchyme. Recent advances in the understanding of the biological mechanisms of cancer initiation, growth, and metastasis have led to a number of new therapeutic modalities with cancer-specific modes of action; these new biotherapeutic drugs have led to significant improvements in the clinical management of many tumor types. However, these advances have predominantly been directed towards the treatments of carcinomas, leukemias, and lymphomas. For sarcomas, there exist very few available targeted therapies, and the treatment of these tumors remains a significant unmet medical need. This dissertation concerns the identification and inhibition of novel therapeutic targets in sarcomas. In Chapter One, a brief introduction to the epidemiology, biology, and available treatments for cancer is presented. In Chapter Two, a relatively understudied receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK), ROR2, is shown to be a prognostic biomarker of patient outcome and to play a pro-tumorigenic role in two soft-tissue sarcomas, leiomyosarcoma (LMS) and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). In Chapter Three, a cell surface protein, CD47, is shown to prevent immune-mediated clearance of LMS tumors by macrophages, and anti-CD47 monoclonal antibody (mAb) drugs are demonstrated to have therapeutic efficacy against LMS tumors in vitro and in vivo. In Chapter Four, a mAb directed towards KIT, an RTK over-expressed and mutated in GIST, is shown to slow tumor growth in vitro and in vivo in GIST tumors that are both sensitive and resistant to treatment with the current standard of care drug, imatinib. In Chapter Five, a computational approach is taken to identify novel drugs for LMS by comparing gene expression profiles of these tumors to those of benign lesions arising from the same cell type; drugs identified by this analysis were then tested in vitro on LMS cells. Chapters Six and Seven contain discussions and concluding remarks on the results presented in earlier chapters. In sum, these results help further the identification and experimental validation of novel therapeutic targets in soft-tissue sarcomas. It is hoped that these studies will add to the scientific understanding of soft-tissue sarcoma biology and will help to enable further scientific and clinical advances to improve the lives of patients suffering from these cancers.

- 2013Elena F. Koslover.The packaging and expression of the genome requires a cell to overcome elastic and entropic forces to form a highly compact structure that remains dynamically accessible to transcription machinery. The eukaryotic genome is packaged into a hierarchical structure collectively termed chromatin and the prokaryotic genome is also condensed and structured by the binding of architectural proteins along the DNA. We use a combination of analytic theory and computational techniques to study how the mechanical properties of DNA and associated proteins impact genome structure and dynamics across a wide range of length and time scales. We demonstrate that the elasticity of the DNA molecule can give rise to tension-mediated cooperative binding between DNA-bending proteins, allowing them to sense each other across a tunable length scale. At the lowest level of eukaryotic chromatin packing, DNA is wound around protein cores to form nucleosomes, which then condense into regular helical fibers under physiologic conditions. Using energy landscape optimization methods, we investigate the role of DNA mechanics in determining the structure of these compact chromatin fibers. We then proceed to examine how he statistical properties of DNA at long length scales are modulated by its interactions with proteins that modify its geometry. To this end, we develop a generalized approach for coarse-grained modeling of polymer systems by mapping to continuous and discrete elastic models. Moving into the realm of dynamics, we uncover an important role for force fluctuations in biomolecular kinetics, demonstrating how microsecond fluctuations can qualitatively alter nucleosomal transcription by RNA polymerase, an essential process for eukaryotic gene expression. Finally, we use a combination of analytic reaction-diffusion models and simulations to study the target site search process of DNA-binding proteins under a variety of conditions relevant to in vitro and in vivo systems, elucidating a key role for confinement and a surprising robustness to DNA configuration. These multi-scale studies further our fundamental understanding of how the complex hierarchy of genome packing and processing arises from the basic physical properties of DNA and interacting proteins.

- 2012 SpringerMarie-Angèle Grandbastien, Josep M. Casacuberta, editors.Transposable elements are DNA sequences with the capacity to move within a genome. Although their presence and impact has long been known, the recent genome-wide analysis of many eukaryotic genomes has uncovered their major role in genome dynamics and function. The present book explains how to recognize and study transposable elements, e.g. by using state-of-the-art strategies based on new-generation sequencing. Moreover, the impact of transposable elements on plant genome structure and function is reviewed in detail and illustrated in examples and case studies. The book is intended both for readers familiar with the field and for newcomers. With large-scale sequencing becoming increasingly available, more and more people will come across transposable element sequences in their data, and this volume will hopefully help to convince them that transposable elements are not just "junk" DNA, and may actually be the most interesting and fun part of their data!

- 2014 SpringerJaroslava Halper, editor.This volume is a reference handbook focusing on diseases like Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome and other heritable soft connective tissue diseases. The book presents detailed information for both basic scientists and for clinicians seeing patients. It is also a stepping stone for new investigations and studies that goes beyond the facts about the composition and biochemistry of the connective tissue and extracellular matrix, as the authors connect individual components to specific aspects of various soft tissue disorders and to the actual or potential treatment of them. Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases features very prominent physicians and scientists as contributors who bring their most recent discoveries to the benefit of readers. Their expertise will help clinicians with proper diagnosis of sometimes elusive and uncommon heritable diseases of soft connective tissues. This book also offers an update on the pathophysiology of these diseases, including an emphasis on unifying aspects such as connections between embryonic development of the different types of connective tissues and systems, and the role of TGF-beta in development and physiology of soft tissues. This new set of data explains, at least in part, why many of these disorders are interconnected, though the primary pathophysiological events, such as gene mutations, may be different for each disorder.Also available: Print – 2014

- 2014 SpringerAndré L.S. Santos, Marta H. Branquinha, Claudia M. d'Avila-Levy, Lucimar F. Kneipp, Cátia L. Sodré, editors.This book contains a collection of critical reviews on the expression of biologically functional proteins in Leishmania and Trypanosoma, which was written by renowned researchers on this field. Species belonging to these trypanosomatids genera are etiological agents of leishmaniasis, Chagas' disease and sleeping sickness that are extremely debilitating human infection diseases, which remain a major health problem especially in countries from Latin America, Africa and Middle East. Substantiating the problem, the currently accepted drugs for these diseases are quite unsatisfying due to their low efficacy and high toxicity. In order to solve these real problems, several research groups around the world have become involved in the study and identification of novel potential targets in the trypanosomatid cell. Since proteins are key macromolecules involved in crucial metabolic processes of all living cells, studies have focused on the expression of specific proteins produced by Leishmania and Trypanosoma by means of different biochemical, molecular and proteomic approaches in order to explore them as targets for understanding the parasite life cycle and developing new strategies against trypanosomiasis. With these proposals in mind, the book "Proteins and Proteome of Leishmania and Trypanosoma" encompasses (i) an integrated view about the biochemistry of parasites belonging to the Leishmania and Trypanosoma genera; (ii) an updated review on the expression of biologically relevant proteins by human pathogenic trypanosomatids and their possible role in the interaction with host cells/molecules as well as a target for development of both alternative chemotherapies and vaccine; and (iii) several pictures, diagrams and tables that can be used to illustrate both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching as well as scientific lectures, being a useful resource for students and researchers.
