Where People Meet: Nodes for Interaction between Biologists and
Computer Scientists in the Analysis of Microarray Expression Data and
Cis-Regulatory Elements
Abstract:
Cellular signaling events affect the regulation of transcription factor (TF)
activation. TFs in turn regulate the expression of specific downstream
target genes by specific binding to their cognate DNA-motif. The effect on
gene expression mediated by the TF-binding to cis-regulatory elements (CREs)
in regulatory non-coding DNA sequences can result in an increase or decrease
of the target gene?s transcript abundance. Microarrays provide an insight
into this dynamic information on the responses induced by this underlying
regulatory network. To date&s_comma; most experiments are conducted by biologists
and the bulk analysis of the data produced is performed by information
scientists. We found that the integration of computer scientists and
biologists during all phases of the experiments has been extremely
profitable. Especially for large or multidimensional datasets&s_comma; the
experience of information scientists becomes indispensable. An iterative
search for regulatory gene modules or TF regulatory networks and their
functional analysis in the laboratory constitutes only one of the meeting
points for both of these scientists. I will present examples of our present
work&s_comma; where the interaction of computer scientists and biologists has been
beneficial for our understanding in the regulation of gene expression via
CREs in plants.

講演者: Dr. Dierk Wanke (University of Tubingen&s_comma; Germany) The Promoter Code:
What we learned about gene regulation by drawing pictures
Abstract:
The discovery of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) still remains a challenging
task. Phylogenetic footprinting approaches and phylogenetic shadowing has
been successfully used to identify regulatory sequences in promoters of
orthologous genes. Still&s_comma; surprisingly little is known about the nature of
CRE distribution in promoters. With the help of promoter motif distribution
curves&s_comma; positional information has been added to DNA motifs. A cross-species
approach&s_comma; exploiting the genome sequences of the model species Arabidopsis
thaliana&s_comma; Caenorhabditis elegans&s_comma; Drosophila melanogaster and Saccharomyces
cerevisiae&s_comma; shows the importance of the position and orientation for motif
discovery. Analysis with known CREs and random hexanucleotides revealed that
some common basic eukaryotic core-promoter structure has been conserved
throughout evolutionary time. I will present examples of our past and
present work&s_comma; where the integration of positional information of motifs has
been useful for the examination of gene expression in plants.
