Dr. Sascha Sauer has been at the helm of the scientific Genomics platform at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB) since August 2016. Among other initiatives, Sauer plans to further develop methods for single-cell analysis and make them available for collaborative projects, as well as overseeing various independent research projects, including in the […]
MDC researcher Michael Sieweke joined forces with two research teams from the Weizmann Institute to publish a new study, which is pointing to the central role of transcription factor MafB on the final maturation steps of microglia.
The same regulatory mechanisms are active in the stem cells of flatworms and humans: The RNA is processed in a similar manner in the cells of both organisms. These mechanisms seem to be at work throughout the whole animal kingdom. Scientists from the MDC showed this in a genome-wide study on flatworms.
