lncRNA Spain's ICN2 Awarded €161K to Develop Point-of-Care Test for Breast Cancer Diagnosis Premium The EU-backed project, called Serena, envisions the deployment of a multisensor platform that can detect microRNAs and long noncoding RNAs associated with the disease. COVID-19 Severity Linked to mRNA, lncRNA Signature in Blood The researchers said that more research into these biomarkers could help with patient stratification and therapy selection. Gene, Long Non-Coding RNA Expression Shift During Organ Development A Heidelberg University-led team analyzed bulk transcriptome data from half a dozen organs and species to examine developmental dynamics. Long Non-Coding RNA Could Serve as Treatment Target for Prostate Cancer 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. New TCGA Papers Shed Light on Cancer Development Researchers associated with the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network will publish more than 25 papers this week to discuss findings from the initiative.
