Movers & Shakers: Apr 30, 2010


Ruedi Aebersold was awarded the Herbert A. Sober Lectureship award by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology this past week.

The award was presented to Aebersold at the Experimental Biology 2010 meeting in Anaheim, Calif. Aebersold received $3,000, transportation and expenses to attend the meeting, and a plaque.

The award recognizes outstanding research in biochemistry and molecular biology and places particular emphasis on developments of methods and techniques to aid in research.

Currently a professor of molecular systems biology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University of Zürich, Aebersold has developed numerous methods and technologies — including isotope-coded affinity tag, or ICAT, reagents — that are widely used in proteomics.

The Scan

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.

Rett Syndrome Mouse Model Study Points to RNA Editing Possibilities

Investigators targeted MECP2 in mutant mouse models of Rett syndrome, showing in PNAS that they could restore its expression and dial down symptoms.

Investigators Find Shared, Distinct Genetic Contributors to Childhood Hodgkin Lymphoma

An association study in JAMA Network Open uncovers risk variants within and beyond the human leukocyte antigen locus.

Transcriptomic, Epigenetic Study Appears to Explain Anti-Viral Effects of TB Vaccine

Researchers report in Science Advances on an interferon signature and long-term shifts in monocyte cell DNA methylation in Bacille Calmette-Guérin-vaccinated infant samples.
