How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Poised enhancers (PEs) represent a genetically distinct set of distal regulatory elements that control the expression of major developmental genes. Before becoming activated in differentiating cells, PEs are already bookmarked in pluripotent cells with unique chromatin and topological features that could contribute to their privileged regulatory pr...

Full-text available
CpG islands (CGIs) represent a widespread feature of vertebrate genomes, being associated with ~70% of all gene promoters. CGIs control transcription initiation by conferring nearby promoters with unique chromatin properties. In addition, there are thousands of distal or orphan CGIs (oCGIs) whose functional relevance is barely known. Here we show t...

The epidermis consists of different compartments such as the hair follicle (HF), sebaceous gland (SG) and interfollicular epidermis (IFE), each containing distinct stem cell (SC) populations. However, with the exception of the SCs residing within the HF bulge, other epidermal SC populations remain less well understood. Here we used an epigenomic st...

Poised enhancers (PEs) represent a limited and genetically distinct set of distal regulatory elements that control the induction of developmental genes in a hierarchical and non-redundant manner. Before becoming activated in differentiating cells, PEs are already bookmarked in pluripotent cells with unique chromatin and topological features that co...

Germline specification in mammals occurs through an inductive process whereby competent cells in the post-implantation epiblast reactivate a naïve pluripotency expression program and differentiate into primordial germ cells (PGC). The intrinsic factors that endow epiblast cells with the competence to respond to germline inductive signals remain lar...
Article
The pathological consequences of structural variants disrupting 3D genome organization can be difficult to elucidate in vivo due to differences in gene dosage sensitivity between mice and humans. This is illustrated by branchiooculofacial syndrome (BOFS), a rare congenital disorder caused by heterozygous mutations within TFAP2A, a neural crest regu...
Article
Full-text available
Background: While CRISPR-Cas systems hold tremendous potential for engineering the human genome, it is unclear how well each system performs against one another in both non-homologous end joining (NHEJ)-mediated and homology-directed repair (HDR)-mediated genome editing. Results: We systematically compare five different CRISPR-Cas systems in hum...
Article
Full-text available
BOFS is a rare congenital syndrome that arises due to defects during neural crest (NC) development. All reported BOFS cases are caused by heterozygous mutations within TFAP2A. Here we describe a unique BOFS patient carrying a de novo heterozygous inversion in which one of the breakpoints is located 40 kb downstream of TFAP2A. Using in vitro and in...
Article
Full-text available
Ecological power management is currently facing three major challenges: the storage of electrical power, the development of renewable energy resources and the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide due to the use of fossil fuels. Especially, when considering the decreasing fossil fuel reserves and the increasing consumption, new solutions are urgen...

Ecological power management is currently facing three challenges: the storage of electrical power, the development of renewable energy resources, which are not timely and locally synced with demand, and the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide due to the use of fossil fuels. We address these challenges by implementing a proof of concept productio...
