Pipelines & Data Integration

By Jeremy Davis-Turak on Feb 15, 2017 10:36:00 AM

Challenges and opportunities in the research setting. 

The emergence and mass utilization of high-throughput (HT) technologies, including sequencing technologies (genomics) and mass spectrometry (proteomics, metabolomics, lipids), has allowed geneticists, biologists, and biostatisticians to bridge the gap between genotype and phenotype on a massive scale. These new technologies have brought rapid advances in our understanding of cell biology, evolutionary history, microbial environments, and are increasingly providing new insights and applications towards clinical care and personalized medicine.

Prostate cancer, racial disparities and Vitamin D3

By Gary Hardiman on Nov 16, 2016 10:18:00 AM

Transcriptome differences in prostate cancer highlight racial disparities. 

African-American and European-American men with prostate cancer exhibit significantly different expression of genes associated with immune response and inflammation.

Systems-level, RNA analyses support the concept that inflammatory processes may contribute to racial disparities in disease progression and that vitamin D3 supplementation can modulate pro-inflammatory transcripts.

The threat to fish embryos and larvae development.

MIAMI-A research team led by scientists at the University of California, Riverside and the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have found that ultraviolet light is changing the structure of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil components into something more toxic, further threatening numerous commercially and ecologically important fishes.
