Characterizing the admixed African ancestry of African Americans

Genome Biology

Dec 23, 2009

Fouad ZakhariaHua Tang

Abstract

Accurate, high-throughput genotyping allows the fine characterization of genetic ancestry. Here we applied recently developed statistical and computational techniques to the question of African ancestry in African Americans by using data on more than 450,000 single-nucleotide polymorphi...read more

CZI Human Cell Atlas Seed Network

The aim of the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) is to build reference maps of all human cells in order to enhance our understanding of health and disease. The Seed Networks for the HCA project aims to bring together collaborators with different areas of expertise in order to facilitate the development of the HCA.

Non-coding Variants in Cancer

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements, in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. Here is the latest research.

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.

Non-coding Variants in Cancer (Keystone)

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. This feed focuses on the latest research on non-coding variants in cancer.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
