In a set of new studies, members of an international team mapped gene variation, expression, and regulatory interactions in developing and adult human brains.

The team's Pro-Code system enabled simultaneous high-dimensional protein-level phenotyping of hundreds of genes with single-cell resolution.

An analysis of post-mortem brain transcripts led to Alzheimer's-related alternative gene splicing and expression events, including those influenced by known risk alleles.

The platform integrates whole exome and RNA sequencing for downstream RNA-based drug repurposing to treat patients with relapsed multiple myeloma.

Researchers used brain expression data from mice with well-documented sleep traits to identify gene networks that overlap with those in human depression.

Using omics and other data, researchers performed  network analyses that pointed to interactions between human herpesviruses and other Alzheimer's disease risk factors.
