Programmed DNA elimination in the ciliate Paramecium: from molecular mechanism to evolution

With its nuclear dimorphism, the ciliate Paramecium provides a powerful unicellular model to study how eukaryotic genomes cope with transposable elements (TEs). During evolution, the Paramecium germline genome, hosted in two transcriptionally silent micronuclei, has been continuously colonized by TEs, including in essential coding regions. Functional gene expression relies on the programmed elimination of parasitic sequences, which takes place at each sexual cycle in the transcription-prone somatic macronucleus. While most TEs are eliminated in a heterogeneous manner, excision of ~45,000 Tc1/mariner-related Internal Eliminated Sequences (IESs) is precise. It is carried out by a core machinery composed of domesticated PiggyBac transposases associated with double-strand break repair proteins. Except for a subset of IESs, which will be discussed during my talk, programmed DNA elimination is guided by non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) and repressive chromatin marks.

Workshop days: CLC Genomics Workbench from QIAGEN

For  those who need to do analyses of DNA-seq (including de novo assembly), RNA-seq, ChIP seq (these are just examples), and who would be interested in a software to help you in these kinds of analyses (with intuitive tools, guides and tutorials), there will be a presentation of CLC Genomics Workbench from QIAGEN. The presentation of this software will be given by Elodie Dubus, a Qiagen software specialist, and for those who have already started to work with this software and want to go deeper in the comprehension of this tool and their databases there will be a workshop dedicated to what you want to do.

Specific analyses, the workshop session will be from 9:00 to 10:30, at Genopolys, room « Open ».

Introduction of the CLC Genomics Workbench tools will take place from 10:30 to 12:15, at Genopolys, room « Open » (2nd floor).

Decision-making during developmental progression

Jonathan Chubb (UCL Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, London, UK) did his post-doc with R. Singer ~15 years ago, where he discovered gene bursting using the MS2 system. Since then, he has done a lot of live cell transcription imaging and published many interesting stories.
