Cellular differentiation programs are controlled, to a large extent, by the combinatorial functioning of specific transcription factors. Cortical projection neurons constitute the major excitatory neuron population within the cortex and mediate long distance communication between the cortex and other brain regions. Our understanding of effector transcription factors and their downstream transcriptional programs that direct the differentiation process of cortical projection neurons is far from co ...[more]
Project description:We use comprehensive and unsupervised transcriptome analyses to provide molecular classifications of sensory neurons in the mouse geniculate ganglion. 96 neurons were isolated on a C1 Fluodigm chip, underwent RNA-Seq, and iteratively clustered into sub-classes. Overall design: RNA-Seq analysis of 96 geniculate ganglion neurons collected on two 96-well C1 Fluodigm chips.
Project description:We explored the relationship between the evolutionary dynamics of CTCF binding and the functional stability of higher order genome structures, by performing ChIP-seq experiments in closely related Mus species or strains and intersecting with Hi-C-derived topologically associating domains (TADs) and expression data. Experiments were performed in adult male liver samples, using input control sets.
Project description:NeuroD2 targets were identified from embryonic day 14.5 cerebral cortex tissue. The cerebral cortex (dorsal telencelphalon) from E14.5 mouse embryos was dissected and ChIP-SEQ was performed using three separate antibodies against NeuroD2.
