This is advance notice of this seminar. Dr Califano’s lab have been leaders in the development of biochemically validated genome-wide maps of transcriptional and post-transcriptional interaction in several human cell contexts, including different cancer types and normal and tumour-related stem cells. The Califano lab integrates the development of analytical methodologies with high-throughput experimental assays for data generation and biological/biochemical validation. In particular, the lab have developed the “master regulator” concept in human tumours and the “bottleneck” hypothesis of master regulator function in glioma. Recent publications include:
