Single-Nucleus Chromatin Accessibility Profiling in Coronary Artery Disease Points to Mechanisms
The researchers analyzed more than 28,000 cells using single-nucleus ATAC-seq to develop an atlas of genome accessibility.
Polygenic Transcriptome Risk Scores for COPD Show Improved Cross-Ancestry Portability
Researchers found that polygenic transcriptome risk scores worked better across ethnicities than polygenic risk scores to predict chronic obstructive pulmonary disease risk.
Ceres plans to develop its Nanotrap technology to isolate undetectable levels of circulating tumor DNA in blood samples from non-small cell lung cancer patients.
New $22M Study to Use Sequencing, Proteomics to Investigate Pulmonary Fibrosis
Among the study's goals is to identify molecular signatures that can distinguish idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis from interstitial lung disease.
UVA Teams Wins $2.7M NIH Grant to Study Genetic Variation in Atherosclerosis
