    2018 Gairdner Awards: The discovery and importance of genomic imprinting

    Anne C Ferguson-Smith, Deborah Bourc'his
    Research into genomic imprinting has provided a foundation for the study of epigenetic mechanisms, especially during development, and has also shed light on a range of rare genetic disorders and common diseases.

    Translational control of auditory imprinting and structural plasticity by eIF2α

    Gervasio Batista et al.
    Behavioral pharmacology and molecular biology reveal a translational control mechanism underlying auditory imprinting and structural plasticity that can be pharmacologically manipulated to reopen the critical period.

    Dormancy-specific imprinting underlies maternal inheritance of seed dormancy in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Urszula Piskurewicz et al.
    A genomic imprinting program in the endosperm of Arabidopsis mature seeds is dynamically adjusted according to seed dormancy levels and regulates germination.

    Natural epigenetic polymorphisms lead to intraspecific variation in Arabidopsis gene imprinting

    Daniela Pignatta et al.
    Individual scientists, scientific communities and scientific journals can do more to assess the publication of irreproducible results, to promote good science, and to increase the efficiency with which the scientific community self-corrects.

    Mapping the mouse Allelome reveals tissue-specific regulation of allelic expression

    Daniel Andergassen et al.
    Allele-specific expression due to genetic differences, X-chromosome inactivation or genomic imprinting, varies dynamically throughout development, and may be explained by allele-specific differences in stability or the actions of tissue-specific enhancers.

    DNA methylation and gene expression changes derived from assisted reproductive technologies can be decreased by reproductive fluids

    Sebastian Canovas et al.
    Reproductive fluids help the correct establishment of some epigenetic marks and gene expression in preimplantation pig embryos.

    Maternally provided LSD1/KDM1A enables the maternal-to-zygotic transition and prevents defects that manifest postnatally

    Jadiel A Wasson et al.
    Epigenetic reprogramming by LSD1/KDM1A acts at fertilization in mice to enable embryogenesis and prevent behavioural abnormalities.

    Conversion of random X-inactivation to imprinted X-inactivation by maternal PRC2

    Clair Harris et al.
    The PRC2 Polycomb complex made in the mouse oocyte prevents transcriptional inactivation of the maternal X-chromosome in the early embryo.
    1. Neuroscience

    Quantitative and functional interrogation of parent-of-origin allelic expression biases in the brain

    Julio D Perez et al.
    A subset of genes in the mouse brain show dynamically regulated and unequal expression of maternally and paternally derived variants, with implications for brain development and function.
