Accurate regulation of gene expression is fundamental for the correct development of tissues in all living organisms. In mammals, control of gene expression relies critically on DNA sequences named enhancers, which are often located at very large genomic distances from the gene that they control. How such distant regulatory sequences act specifically on one or ... Read more about "Structure vs. Function: Chromosome architecture and the regulation of gene expression"

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Understanding how biological functions emerge from all molecular interactions is the aim of systems biology. However, the complexity of 25,000 (or even 300,000) genes and their expression products is mind-boggling. Is this complexity prohibitive? Yes, and No! I will first show how considerations of biological function, as well as newly recognized non-equilibrium ... Read more about "Is it the Genome that Throws Dice Then?

15th NCCR MARVEL Distinguished Lecture Several physical observables of materials have their theoretical root in geometrical properties of the electronic ground state. To start with, I will outline the modern theory of the insulating state, which addresses all kinds of insulators (band, Mott, Anderson...), discriminating them from metals by means of a very simple geometrical ...

10:15-11:00 ME C2 405
Abstract: Ordinary differential equations, and in general a dynamical system viewpoint, have seen a resurgence of interest in developing fast optimization methods, mainly thanks to the availability of well-established analysis tools. In this talk, I will provide an overview of fast algorithms and recent results from a dynamical systems perspective. I will then describe a ...

Bio-inspired metal-coordination crosslinking: easy access to broad dynamics when engineering polymer gel mechanics
Efforts to engineer polymer material mechanics is increasingly coupled to the design of transient crosslink dynamics. We have sought to gain a deeper understanding of how polymer gel mechanical properties can be controlled over multiple hierarchical time-scales via design of bioinspired metal-coordinate crosslink structure on multiple length-scales. By utilizing metal ioncoordination complexes and metal nanoparticle-coordination ...

Stimulating the human brain to enhance brain function and behaviour, and especially to treat patients suffering from neuropsychiatric diseases is a dream and goal in clinical and behavioural neuroscience since more than 2000 years. First reports applying non-invasive electrical stimulation delivered by discharges of electro-fish to the brain are dating back to 50 AC (Scribonius ...
