Abstract

Many genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified signals located in non-coding regions, and an increasing number of functional genomics annotations of regulatory elements and assays of regulatory activity have been used to investigate mechanisms. Genome-wide datasets that cha...read more

CRISPR Screens in Drug Resistance

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that may confer drug resistance.

Gene Regulatory Networks

Gene regulatory networks are comprised of molecular regulators that interact with each other and other factors in a cell to regulate and modulate gene expression. Here is the latest research.

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.

Lipidomics

Lipidomics is a branch of metabolomics that comprehensively analyses lipids in biological systems to determine the molecules with which they interact and their function within the cell. Here is the latest research.

CRISPR Ribonucleases Deactivation

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie deactivation of CRISPR ribonucleases. Here is the latest research.

CRISPR (general)

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Discover the latest research on CRISPR here.

Perturb-seq

Perturb-seq has combined CRISPR gene inactivation and single-cell rna-sequencing (scRNA-seq) and is the newest addition to the geneticist's arsenal, providing scientists with study methods for functional genomics. Discover the latest research here.

CRISPR Genome Editing & Therapy

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of this system for gene editing and therapy in human diseases.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

CRISPR for Genome Editing

Genome editing technologies enable the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). Here is the latest research on the use of CRISPR-Cas system in gene editing.

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci (eQTL) analysis is the identification of specific or groups of genetic variants that affect gene expression levels within the cell. Discover the latest research on Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis here.

Genome Annotation

Genome annotation is the process of identifying genes and assigning function to each gene in a genome sequence. It provides the means to elucidate biological function from sequence. Here is the latest research.
