Computational And Experimental Approaches To Identify And Model Biologically Relevant Gene Regulatory Networks (GeneRNet): cellular models of epithelial-mesenchymal transition

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Development and homeostasis in complex organisms requires a tight regulation of gene expression. This is accomplished by a set of interconnected regulatory interactions known as the "regulatory network" . The main goal of our project is to study the interplay between the transcriptional and post-transcriptional layers of regulation in the human genome which has been recently realized to play a very important, and previously unnoticed role in higher eukaryotes. We plan to address this study using both computational and experimental approaches. Specifically, in this part of the project we will evaluate the role of the candidate circuits in different models of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). EMT is crucial for embryonic development and disease progression, such as wound healing, organ fibrosis and tumor metastasis.
