Translocations and epigenetic changes are frequently found in cancer. However, how the epigenetic landscape evolves during early tumor formation and how translocations play a role in this process remain largely unexplored. Neither is it know if oncogenic epigenetic events occur in healthy individuals, which could provide seeds for positive selection and tumor formation. In this talk, I will present (i) a new single-cell DNA methylation method that we have developed in the lab to characterise the DNA methylation landscape in healthy B cells as well as (ii) a study of the global effects of translocations on 3D chromatin organization, using mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) as a model.

Junior talk

Roberto Rossini, PhD candidate at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, will present his work on "MoDLE: High-performance stochastic modeling of DNA loop extrusion interactions."
