Doris succeeded to obtain an EMBO long term fellowship for her postdoctoral work in the lab. Congratulations!
Nico‘s and Thomas‘ paper entitled ‘Control of Transcript Variability in Single Mammalian Cells’ has been accepted for publication in Cell. Congratulations!! Check also www.image-based-transcriptomics.org.
On September 1, Doris Popovic joined our lab as a postdoctoral fellow. Doris did her PhD in the laboratory of Ivan Dikic at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. In her PhD work, she discovered a mechanism by which endocytic carriers are targeted to autophagosomes during autophagy. For more details, check here.
In our lab, Doris will use a combination of systems biology and molecular cell biology approaches to study the poorly understood process of subcellular patterning of RNA molecules.
Gabriele‘s paper entitled ‘Cycler: inferring a trajectory of cell cycle progression from fixed cell populations’ has been accepted for publication in Nature Methods. Congratulations!! Check also www.cellcycler.org.
At the joint FEBS-EMBO advanced lecture course on ‘Biomembranes: Molecular architecture, dynamics, and function’ in Cargèse, Corsica, Mathieu won the poster and talk prize for his discovery of a cell-intrinsic mechanism by which single mammalian cells adapt their lipid composition to local crowding [Journal] [PDF] [Suppl. Info] [PubMed]. Congratulations!!!
The following paper is now online:
Cell-intrinsic adaptation of lipid composition to local crowding drives social behaviour. Frechin M, Stoeger T, Daetwyler S, Gehin C, Battich N, Damm E-M, Stergiou L, Riezman H, Pelkmans L. Nature, doi:10.1038/nature14429, May 25, 2015 [Journal] [PDF] [Suppl. Info] [PubMed].
