New Products: St. Jude's Explore

Premium

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has launched a website for published research results from its Pediatric Cancer Genome sequencing project with Washington University.

Named Explore, the site is designed to allow access to the project's data, enabling researchers to use the data to make discoveries of their own. Users can also track the project's progress. To date, it has sequenced 250 of the planned 600 tumor/normal samples.

The Scan

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
