Computational models for cell reprogramming (pdf)
Embryonic stem cells (ESC) have the capacity to self-renew and remain pluripotent, while continuously providing a source of a variety of differentiated cell types. Understanding what governs these properties at the molecular level is crucial for stem cell biology and its application to regenerative medicine. Of particular relevance is to elucidate those molecular interactions, which govern the reprogramming of somatic cells back into stem cells. A few central transcription factors inside embryonic stem cells and reprogrammed stem cells (induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells) are believed to control the cells' pluripotency. Characterizations of pluripotent state were put forward on both transcription factor and epigenetic levels. Whereas core players have been identified, it is desirable to map out gene regulatory networks, which govern the reprogramming of somatic cells as well as the early developmental decisions.
A computational approach can be used as a framework to explore the dynamics of a simplified network of the pluripotent cells with the aim to understand how stem cells differentiate and also how they can be reprogrammed from somatic cells. In this talk, I present computational models for core stem cell gene regulatory network, which shed light on regulatory mechanisms governing pluripotency acquisition through reprogramming.

Astrometric detection of exoplanets with Gaia
Most of the ~2000 exoplanets known today have been discovered by observing radial velocity motions and/or transits. The astrometric shifts of stars due to planetary orbits have been detected so far only in very few cases, despite a long history of interest and claims. The Gaia satellite, launched in December 2013 and currently gathering data, measures stellar astrometry with unprecedented precision. It is estimated that ~20,000 planets will be detected at the end of its 5-year mission.
