A Stanford University-led research team used short-, long-, and paired-end RNA sequencing to study transcriptome dynamics during the transition from human embryonic stem cells to differentiated neural cells.
Stanford University researcher Uta Francke took attendees through a host of issues related to the concept of the human genome as personal property at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting this weekend.
In a proof-of-concept study published last week in PLoS One, the method, called 3'-end sequencing for expression quantification, or 3SEQ, performed much better than microarrays in profiling gene expression in FFPE tumor samples.
By doing a meta-analysis of autoimmune disease-associated variants, a team of researchers from Stanford University and elsewhere detected SNPs that seem to increase the risk of some autoimmune conditions but protect against others.
