Using a microfluidics-based single-cell isoform RNA-seq approach, researchers clustered cerebellar cells and saw isoforms with cell type-specific expression.

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.

In adults and children with Crohn's, miR-31 was found at higher levels in gut tissue, and the cases marked by lower expression tended to have poorer outcomes.

Researchers compared findings from genome-wide association studies for 62 traits or conditions with genes implicated in 20 Mendelian disorder types, uncovering new ties.

With RNA sequence, expression quantitative trait locus, genome-wide association, and other data, researchers identified disease-related genes in the kidney glomerulus and tubule compartments.

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

Researchers found relevant non-coding mutations in colorectal cancer cell lines by systematically profiling chromosome interactions at promoter fragments.

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.

Using proteomic and genetic approaches, researchers identified a histone mark called lysine benzoylation that appears to be enhanced by exposure to sodium benzoate.

Researchers used array-based DNA methylation data to quantify methylation levels in almost 1,500 identical or non-identical twins.
