CRG The Genomic Regulation Centre
Annual Report 2013 and 2014
Since 2013 we have worked on the CRG's Annual Report.
For major centres of this kind the Annual Report is a key aspect of their communication.
In fact, it reflects their activity, values and work over the whole year. It is a tool which, if well put together, can have a very positive impact on their brand.
The challenge is to make the Annual Report unique, include new ideas and concepts each year and above all summarise the large volume of work.
The secret code ruling body formation
CRG researchers demonstrate that the mathematical theory proposed by Alan Turing in 1952 to explain embryogenesis can, in fact, account for the formation of fingers (James Sharpe’s lab).
The Regulation of Protein Synthesis in Eukaryotes group, led by Fátima Gebauer, looks at how the protein UNR works in Drosophila according to sex.
Why sport is good for your heart
Researchers from the CRG demonstrate, for the first time at a molecular level, how regular exercise improves cardiac cell function (Proteomics Unit, Eduard Sabidó and Guadalupe Espadas).
Safeguarding the cell nucleus
Researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona have uncovered a new quality control system in our cells, specific to the inner nuclear membrane, a specialised part of the endoplasmic reticulum (Pedro Carvalho’s lab)
Mice and men: so different but yet, so similar
Scientists from the CRG, coordinated by Roderic Guigó, are taking part in an international consortium which has found out that the mouse is a good model for certain diseases, but not others.
Mysteries of the nerve cells
The Epigenetic Events in Cancer group, led by Luciano Di Croce, is demonstrating the importance of the ZRF1 gene for establishing and maintaining the identity of the nerve progenitor cells.
