Nanopore sequencing is a third generation pproach used in the sequencing of biopolymers- specifically, polynucleotides in the form of DNA or RNA. Discover the latest research on nanopore sequencing.
Alignment-free sequence analyses have been applied to problems ranging from whole-genome phylogeny to the classification of protein families, identification of horizontally transferred genes, and detection of recombined sequences. Here is the latest research.
RNA sequencing studies have shed light on the genetic and molecular mechanisms related to the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). This feed follows papers using RNA sequencing technologies in Alzheimer's research.
The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
This feed focuses on biomimetrics, synthetic biology and bio- and tissue-engineering approaches used for modeling human diseases.
Artificial chromosomes are genetically engineered chromosomes derived from the DNA of a species. Discover the latest research on artificial chromosomes here.
Total artificial hearts (TAH) and ventricular assist devices (VADs) provide cardiac support for patients with end-stage heart disease and have significantly improved the survival of these patients. Discover the latest research on Artificial Heart and Ventricular Assist Devices here.
Biodiversity refers to the variety and variability of life on Earth. Biodiversity is typically a measure of variation at the genetic, species, and ecosystem level.Discover the latest research on biodiversity data here.
Bioinformatics in biomedicine incorporates computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics. Discover the latest research on bioinformatics in biomedicine here.
Advances in biomaterial engineering have permitted the development of sophisticated drug-releasing materials with a biomimetic 3D support that allow a better control of the microenvironment of transplanted cells. Here is the latest research.
Brain organoids are three-dimensional cell culture models derived from human pluripotent stem cells. Since they resemble the embryonic brain, they can be used to help study brain biology, early brain development, and brain diseases. Discover the latest research on brain organoids in disease modeling here.
