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 team has developed a new bioinformatics tool that analyzes CRISPR pooled screen data and identifies candidates for potentially relevant genes with greater sensitivity and accuracy than other existing methods.
A study led by the section of immunology, allergy and rheumatology in the Department of Pediatrics researches an uncommon food allergy known as ‘food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome’ (FPIES) that occurs mostly in infants.
