The recognition of many types of DNA lesions activates the cellular DNA damage response (DDR). The DDR orchestrates the appropriate cellular programs to maintain genome integrity after genotoxic stress.

Gene regulation, evolution and the exploitation of new habitats

Changes in the regulation of two genes explain how the Drosophila respiratory system evolved from a primitive to a more developed state

Microscopy moves towards “nanoscopy” and transforms the life sciences

The new microscopes allow the tracking of cell movement within an organism, observation of neuronal synapses, visualization of the spread of cancer, and in vivo monitoring of embryo development.

The development of the 3D microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, and light sheet microscopy (a kind of microscope that illuminates the sample with a sheet of light) pushes biology towards new horizons.

IRB Barcelona and the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) gather 420 experts in the 15th ELMI Meeting, an annual European microscopy congress held this year in Sitges from 19 till 22 May.

A study using Drosophila flies reveals new regulatory mechanisms of cell migration

The study by Sofia J. Araújo sheds light on the fields of development, wound healing, angiogenesis, and tumour invasion, processes in which cell migration is crucial.

And in the beginning was histone 1

A team at IRB Barcelona identifies an essential protein for embryonic viability during the first cell divisions in the fly Drosophila.

This protein, called dBigH1, which is a variant of histone 1, could also be associated with fertility issues.

IRB Barcelona researchers discover mechanism that regulates steroid hormone production in Drosophila

• The study, published in Current Biology, links growth to sexual maturity.

• Scientists at IRB Barcelona identify a micro-RNA key to insulin’s regulation of steroid hormones in flies.
