Joe joins the lab

Joe Ellaway has joined the lab for his (fully remote) MSc project in bioinformatics. He will be working on the computational prediction of enhancer-promoter contacts capitalising on existing models and Capture Hi-C data. Welcome Joe – sorry we don’t have a chance to meet you offline!

Enhanc3D Genomics and our group contribute to COVID-19 GWAS interpretation

In collaboration with Enhanc3D Genomics Ltd, we have linked non-coding GWAS SNPs associated with COVID-19 susceptibility and severity with their putative target gene based on 3D chromosomal conformation in blood cells.

For this analysis, we have used the COGS approach and Promoter Capture Hi-C data from our earlier study (Javierre et al., Cell 2016). The GWAS data are coming from the COVID-19 Host Genetics Initiative that we have joined for this task.

Our data are currently available at https://osf.io/k2mxe/ and will evolve with the next releases of the GWAS meta-analysis dataset. Our results will also be posted on the www.covid19hg.org website in due course.

Michiel’s preprint is out!

Michiel’s preprint on the effects of cohesin depletion on rewiring of promoter-enhancer interactions and nascent transcription is out!

https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.02.10.941989

A fruitful collaboration with Gordana Wutz and Wen Tang at Jan-Michael Peters’s lab at the IMP, Matthias Muhar at the IMP’s Zuber lab, and Stefan Schoenfelder and Peter Fraser at Babraham.

Now fingers crossed for the story’s smooth sailing to a journal…
