Abstract

Gene-regulatory enhancers have been identified using various approaches, including evolutionary conservation, regulatory protein binding, chromatin modifications, and DNA sequence motifs. To integrate these different approaches, we developed EnhancerFinder, a two-step method for disting...read more

Chromatin Regulators: Differentiation

Chromatin regulators affect gene expression by influencing the access of proteins such as transcription factors to DNA. Here is the latest research on the role of chromatin regulating proteins on cellular differentiation.

Cardiac Regeneration

Cardiac regeneration enables the repair of irreversibly damaged heart tissue using cutting-edge science, including stem cell and cell-free therapy. Discover the latest research on cardiac regeneration here.

Adult Stem Cells

Adult stem cells reside in unique niches that provide vital cues for their survival, self-renewal, and differentiation. They hold great promise for use in tissue repair and regeneration as a novel therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.

Histone Modifications

Histone modifications, including acetylation, phosphorylation, and methylation, play important roles in regulating chromatin structure and nuclear processes. They can also be passed to daughter cells as epigenetic marks. Here is the latest research on histone modification.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.

Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers

Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers caused by ebola, marburg and lassa viruses often manifest as multiple organ dysfunction and hemorrhagic shock with high mortality. Discover the latest research on Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers here.

Embryonic Neural Stem Cells

Embryonic neural stem cells can be used to investigate the effect of different toxins and molecules on the proliferation and differentiation of these cells. Discover the latest research of embryonic neural stem cells here.

CpG Sites

CpG sites are genomic loci where cytosine is followed by a guanine along its 5’ to 3’ direction. CpG sites are common in CpG islands and its methylation has been implicated in cancer, aging, and gene silencing. Here is the latest research.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

Molecular Drivers of Cardiomyocyte Maturation

Establishing cardiomyocytes derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells has great potential as a cell source for therapeutic applications, such as regenerative medicine. Discover the latest research on Molecular Drivers of Cardiomyocyte Maturation here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

BioHub - Researcher Network

The Chan-Zuckerberg Biohub aims to support the fundamental research and develop the technologies that will enable physicians to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases in our childrens' lifetimes. The CZ Biohub brings together researchers from UC Berkeley, Stanford, and UCSF. Find the latest research from the CZ Biohub researcher network here.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Neurogenetic Disorders

Neurogenetic disorders are caused by a defect in one or more genes affecting the differentiation and function of the neuroectoderm and its derivatives. Here is the latest research on neurogenetic disorders
