Shaping Genes, Genomes, Populations and Species

Image Shaping Genes, Genomes, Populations and Species Plants have evolved an incredible diversity of strategies to optimize their sexual reproduction. The physical distance between plant male and female organs varies from hermaphroditism to biparental reproduction. The investment of resources in different sexes is also extremely diverse. For example, male gamete dispersal can be wholly aspecific, relying on the mass production of pollen to saturate the environment and maximize the chances to encounter the maximum of receptive females through wind dispersal. On the contr... Read More

3D Modelling of Mammalian Embryos and Organs

Image   During the past few years, mammalian development has been extended in vitro beyond the pre-implantation and post-implantation period. The exploitation of three dimensional (3D) culture systems has allowed to recapitulate gastrulation and, with the creation of organoids that summarize the process of organogenesis, to mimic the cellular organization and function of specific tissues and organs. The most recent advancements in computing science coupled with molecular technologies allowed a tremendous leap forward in our capacity to characterize the molecular networks ... Read More

Epigenetics & Mammalian Tissues

Image In Eva Jablonka and Lamb’s words, epigenetics is one of the four dimensions of evolution. After decades thinking and acting as if the genome determined the absolute fate of any life form in Earth, the relevance of epigenetics for mammalian life, disease and death is now recognized. In fact, assuming similar genomes, lifespan, life style, and risk of diseases, etc. results from a balance between genes and epigenetic traits. The Research Topic aims to show the differences of epigenetic traits between tissues, their physiological relevance and potential to target epigenetic mechanisms in... Read More

Advances in Genomics of Crossbred Farm Animals

Image Crossbreeding is a common strategy to enhance animal production because it can capitalize on breed complementary and heterosis. To date, crossbreeding has been a significant form of producing commercial animals in pigs and chickens. There are also composite animals, such as Brangus cattle, which combined “superior” characters of Angus and Brahman and retain some heterosis (hybrid vigor) in future generations without crossbreeding and maintained like purebred animals. In the past decades, advances in animal genomics have fundamentally revolutionized all the aspects of a... Read More
