The CGR paper of the month:

 Localization and function of the Arabidopsis nitrogen transporters
O'Brien JA, Vega A, Bouguyon E, Krouk G, Gojon A, Coruzzi G, Gutiérrez RA. 2016. Nitrate transport, sensing and responses in plants. Mol Plant. doi: 10.1016/j.molp.2016.05.004.

The CGR receives cooperation grants:

The CGR has been awarded two International Cooperation Network grants (CONICYT) to collaborate with researchers in Australia and Colombia. Dr. Allende leads the team that obtained the grant "Gene networks in vertebrate immune cells" with the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute; Dr. Montecino leads the group that won the grant "International Research Network on Lung Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics" with the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá.

New genomes sequenced at the CGR.

The genomes of four species of fish have been recently sequenced at the CGR: three Orestias species (O. gloriae, O. chungaraensis, O. laucaensis) and Cynopoecilus melanotaenia.

Successful CRIPSR Course:

The recent international course in Genome Editing and Synthetic Biology was highly successful. Students attending the practical course were able to carry out CRISPR editing in bacteria, Drosophila and zebrafish. The lectures, open to the wider community, presented the latest advances in this exciting technology.

CGR Director incorporates into Chilean Academy of Science

Dr. Miguel L Allende, CGR Director and Professor at the Universidad de Chile, will give his incorporation speech at the Chilean Academy of Science on June 15th (6 PM at the Academy). He will present a lecture detailing his major contributions to science and training.
