Researchers have determined a unique fraction of the genome that scientists should focus on. Their report, which provides a “treasure map” to accelerate research in epigenetics and human disease, was published today in Genome Biology.
A grant will fund Baylor research to study mucosal infection (bacteria, viruses and parasites) through the use of genomics and organoid model systems – cell-derived, in vitro 3D organ models that enable the study of biological processes.
In a new study published in Science Advances, an international multi-institutional research team, led by the Human Genome Sequencing Center, reports novel results describing the genome sequences and evolutionary history of six Papio baboon species.
As genomic sequencing becomes increasingly popular and accessible, an effort called the BabySeq Project aims to explore the medical, behavioral, economic and ethical impacts of adding genomic sequencing to the roster of screenings for newborns.
As part of a larger effort of the National Institutes of Health’s Somatic Cell Genome Editing program, researchers received a U42 grant to create mouse model resources for testing the therapeutic potential of novel genome editing approaches.
