December was a busy month for our scientists.
After the publication of his latest work on Sciences Advances, Giuseppe Testa - Head of the Center for Neurogenomics - flew to the United States. Here he attended the Cold Spring Harbor Lab meeting on "the Development & 3D Modeling of the Human Brain" - the most important event on cerebral organs - and presented the research that will carry out in Human Technopole in this field.
The latest work led by Francesco Iorio - Group Leader of the Centre for Computational Biology - has been published in Nature Communications. The study demonstrates the consistency between large functional genomics datasets generated at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the Broad Institute with CRISPR-Cas9 technology, paves the way for their possible integration and lays the basis for the creation of a map of all genetic dependencies of cancer.
