By screening more than 1,500 drugs against patient-derived glioblastoma cells, researchers tracked down tumor alterations with apparent ties to proteasome inhibitor response.

Researchers analyzed evolutionarily constrained non-coding mutations in genome sequences from dozens of glioblastoma patients, identifying regulation-related changes.

Investigators analyzed the expression of protein-coding genes in 18 blood immune cell populations, comparing the expression profiles with those in other cell and tissue types.
