CELL VIEWER

In March 2016 I was honored to receive the “Ciutat de Barcelona” award 2015 in Life Science for our work carried out in collaboration with Melike Lakadamyali group. The ceremony took place at the “Saló de Cent de l’Ajuntament de Barcelona”. The event can be seen at : BTV: http://www.btv.cat/alacarta/btv-directe/43673/

Our work published in Cell last year ( Ricci MA, Manzo C, García-Parajo M, *Lakadamyali M, and *Cosma MP (2015). Chromatin fibers are formed by heterogeneous groups of nucleosomes in vivo. Cell, *co-last authors. Nominated F1000Prime 2015) has been selected to be among the best 8 research in Spain. In collaboration with the group of Melike Lakadamyali using super resolution microscopy we dissected out the nanoscale organisation of the nucleosome assembly in a variety of somatic and stem/ reprogrammed cells. We discovered that nucleosomes are arranged into discrete groups, which we called ‘nucleosome clutches’ (in analogy with egg clutches) and not in a regular hierarchical structure, as it was believed for a long time and is reported in textbooks. Nucleosome median number and clutch compaction correlate closely with cellular state.
