CRG Centre for Genomic Regulation

Annual Report 2015

This is our third consecutive year working on the CRG's annual report. Once again we take up this exciting challenge to offer our client a unique, different and innovative web.

In our opinion an annual report should not be a conventional web. Instead it is an opportunity for reflection and suggesting new ways of contributing added value to the brand.

The project includes videos of highlights and a simplified version of the same in printed form.

Spotting the molecular
fingerprint of multiple

Going to hospital with neurological
problems is worrying enough. But what
if it’s an early sign of a more serious
illness? (in this video: Eduard Sabidó,
head of the CRG/UPF Proteomics Unit,
Eva Borràs and Cristina Chiva, technicians
at the same Unit).

Zipping up

Imagine you’re going on holiday
and your suitcase is packed full.
So full, in fact, that it won’t close.
You could apply more force, kneeling on
the case and tugging harder on the zipper
until it shuts. But what if the things
in the suitcase actually got smaller?

Biomechanics of Morphogenesis research group, Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Barcelona, Spain)

Have a heart

Building a complex machine is a tricky job, taking expert skill and teamwork. And by studying the molecular ‘workers’ in our cells, researchers are starting to understand how a complex biological machine – the heart – is built as a fetus develops in the womb.

From brain to behaviour: the science of smelling

Fruit fly larvae need to sniff out and
consume enough food to increase their body
weight by a factor of 1,000 in just six days.
But how do they do it?

Get set, go!

Understanding the molecular triggers
that enable genes to be ‘read’ is opening the
door to a potential world of new approaches
for improving life for people living with
Down Syndrome.

Tracing yeast's family tree

Families can be complicated. As more
people get interested in tracing their family
trees – particularly with the advent of
genetic ancestry testing – there can be unexpected surprises lurking in the branches.
