long non-coding RNAs

The grant will fund an investigation into long noncoding RNA and the role it plays in differing prognoses between Black and white breast cancer patients.

A new sequencing-based method developed by Duke University's Kate Meyer is one of several that can detect RNA methylation without the use of antibodies.

In Nucleic Acids Research this week: the hidden human proteome, single-cell-based expression signatures, and more.

In PNAS this week: intronic STAT3 splice site linked to autosomal dominant primary immunodeficiency condition, human B lymphocyte changes following Epstein-Barr virus exposure, and more.

APEX-seq builds on a proteomic labelling technique and offers a new spatial genomics tool for looking at the life of transcripts within the cell.

The new technique, enabled by enzymatic library preparation and a tight bioinformatics pipeline, could have applications in liquid biopsy.

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

UMich's Arul Chinnaiyan plans to use the funding to develop new tools and technologies to identify biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and treatment.

A deep RNA sequencing analysis of adipose tissue from lean and obese individuals highlighted new and previously annotated human long intergenic noncoding RNAs.

A University of Michigan-led team found that the lncRNA ARLNC1 forms a feedback loop with the androgen receptor to promote progression in prostate cancer.
