Gene Expression Research

The latest news about RNA-seq, gene expression profiling, and transcriptome sequencing.

The researchers were able to measure the fitness effects of thousands of natural genetic variants in yeast at single-base resolution.

Researchers developed a k-mer-based classification scheme to assay lncRNA function, identifying cis-repressive lncRNAs with k-mer features resembling Xist.

The RNA-seq data, for nearly 40,000 cells from the developing mouse brain, can be explored through an interactive online interface called Cell Seek.

The predictor, based on 15 pairwise relations between immune checkpoint genes, identified almost all true responders and misclassified fewer than half of non-responders.

A study found that cis-regulatory variation modifies the penetrance of coding variants, and that variants' regulatory haplotype configuration affects disease risk.

The New York Times and ProPublica look into the close relationship between a startup and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Yahoo News reports millions of dollars are being transferred from NIH, CDC, and other programs to pay for the housing of detained undocumented immigrant children.

In Science this week: in vitro generation of human reproductive cells, and more.

Researchers gave a handful of octopuses MDMA to find that they too act more social on the drug, Gizmodo reports.
