Presentation Title Genetic variation influences pluripotent ground state stability in mouse embryonic stem cells through a hierarchy of molecular phenotypes
Status This meeting is currently scheduled

Meeting Agenda/Notes

  •  Mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) exhibit interstrain differences in derivation efficiency and differential activation of the core signaling pathways that maintain pluripotency in vitro.
  • While these phenotypic differences are well known, the underlying genetics remains a mystery. And this problem is not limited to mouse embryonic stem cells. Genetics also influences molecular phenotypes and differentiation capacity in hESCs and hiPSCs where genetic background is a dominant source of inter-line variability.
  • Taking advantage of the Diversity Outbred mouse genetic reference population, we have applied a forward genetic approach to identify the genetic variants that drive these phenotypic differences, with the goal of building predictive models of the response of mESCs to the cell culture environment.
