scrnaseq – Integrating scRNA-seq data using raw data

I believe when you say alignment, you mean aligning reads to a genome (sometimes to transcriptome) and count these to get count matrices. In the aforementioned paper, however, what is meant is “bringing different data sets to a level where they can be compared/integrated/…”. Basically scRNA-seq data are heavily prone…

The Evolving Treatment Landscape of Cholangiocarcinoma

Recent genomic profiling studies revealed that approximately 40% of patients with biliary tract cancers harbor actionable genomic mutations. The advances in the understanding and characterization of biliary tract cancers (BTCs), particularly intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA), and genomic profiling over the past decade have led to a rapid expansion of available treatment…

Summer Research Assistant/Associate, Center for Computational Biology

Tremendous opportunities for discovery have emerged in the biological sciences, requiring the combined power of theory, data analysis, and simulation. Researchers are being confronted by an explosion of information from genome sequencing, gene expression profiling, proteomics, electron microscopy and tomography, and multiple high-resolution imaging modalities both dynamic and static. The…

Mutational Analysis of Mitochondrial tRNA Genes

Introduction Diabetes is a very complex disease characterized by the presence of chronic hyperglycemia. Clinically, insulin-dependent type 1 and non-insulin-dependent type 2 are the main types of diabetes. Among them, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM, [MIM125853]) is a common endocrine disorder affecting approximately 10% of adult population.1 In most cases,…

Gene mutation analysis in papillary thyroid carcinoma

Introduction Thyroid tumors are the most common malignant tumors of the endocrine system, and their incidence has been increasing in the recent decades. Currently, there are some target drugs that can effectively treat PTC, and next-generation sequencing (NGS) can be used for targeted therapy. In order to make better informed…

New frog on the block!

The worldwide scientific community is too often bombarded with bad news — from first time ever rains at the Greenland ice summit to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) doomsday forecast, there is hardly ever a reason to celebrate. Yet for Bangladesh’s nature enthusiasts, there is cause to celebrate….
