NIH Roadmap Funds Proteomics, Bioinformatics Projects with $3.85M

NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (GenomeWeb News) - The NIH has awarded two grants totaling $3.85 million to multi-institutional proteomics and bioinformatics initiatives under its Roadmap program, Rutgers University said on Monday.


A $2 million, five-year training grant goes to the BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology at Rutgers and the Universityof Medicineand Dentistry of New Jersey, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the Northeast Structural Genomics Consortium, and the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics/Protein Data Bank. It will be used to train graduate students and postdocs in proteomics.


The ComputationalCenterfor Biomolecular Complexes, a virtual research initiative involving scientists at Rutgers, Baylor College of Medicine, the Scripps Research Institute, and the Universityof Texasat Austin, has won $1.85 million to develop workshops, undertake pilot studies, and develop new computational systems to study large molecular complexes.

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.
