Duncan Holbrook-Smith won a prestigious HFSP scholarship for his postdoc project at the Sauer lab, on exploiting non-targeted metabolomics for parallelized discovery of chemical probes for receptor-like proteins, and using those chemical probes to better understand the specific roles of receptor-like proteins in that system. Now he has the problem of deciding which fellowship to accept………
Eirini's paper accepted in Nature Communications
Sensitive detection of rare disease-associated cell subsets via representation learning. Using CellCnn, we identify paracrine signaling-, AIDS onset- and rare CMV infection-associated cell subsets in peripheral blood, and extremely rare leukemic blast populations in minimal residual disease-like situations with frequencies as low as 0.01%.

Genome-wide landscape of gene-metabolite interactions charted for bacterium
How do gene (knock-outs) affect metabolite levels? We tested this systematically for > 3'800 genes in E. coli
and found several suprises.
