Single-cell technologies are used to help scientists profile gene and protein expression levels in a variety of diseases including cancer. Here is the latest research on single-cell tumor analysis.
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 is used to reveal the presence and quantity of RNA in a given sample. In this feed, RNA sequencing investigates the genetic and molecular mechanisms related to the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to RNA sequencing and this disease.

Biosensors are devices that are designed to detect a specific biological analyte by essentially converting a biological entity (ie, protein, DNA, RNA) into an electrical signal that can be detected and analyzed. The use of biosensors in cancer detection and monitoring holds vast potential. Biosensors can be designed to detect emerging cancer biomarkers and to determine drug effectiveness at various target sites. Biosensor technology has the potential to provide fast and accurate detection, reliable imaging of cancer cells, and monitoring of angiogenesis and cancer metastasis, and the ability to determine the effectiveness of anticancer chemotherapy agents.
Some cancers are difficult to treat and aggressive including the "triple-negative" breast cancer. This type of cancer is chemoresistant even before chemotherapy begins. Here are the latest discoveries chemo-resistance in breast cancer.
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells are cells that are genetically engineered to recognize and target specific proteins. The ability of these cells to recognize cancer antigens and eliminate tumor cells have transformed cancer immunotherapy approaches. Here is the latest research on CAR-T cells.
CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on CRISPR-Cas applications relevant to single cell analyses. Here is the latest research.
