Eastern Michigan University Plans to Offer MS in Bioinformatics

NEW YORK, March 29 (GenomeWeb News) - Eastern Michigan University is preparing to offer a new masters of science program in bioinformatics beginning in 2005, news website reported last week.


According to, the first students in the program were admitted last fall through EMU's individualized studies program, while the masters program was under review. The bioinformatics program received the approval of the Board of Regents two weeks ago, said.


The Scan

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
