Through a genome-wide association study, meta-analysis, and systems analysis, researchers saw enhanced common variant distribution in mutation-intolerant genes.

Using pathway and network analyses, researchers identified overlapping genes and biological processes behind smoking and schizophrenia, including new candidate genes.

Participants tried to classify samples based on the epigenomic impact of cigarette smoke cessation and aerosol from modified- or reduced-risk products.

Nigel Mouncey joined the JGI in March from Dow AgroSciences and is interested in broadening the user base and scope of JGI's research. 

The agency has committed $11 million for the creation of a network of research centers that will use systems biology approaches to build predictive models for infectious diseases.

Called CanPathPro, the research consortium aims to combine omics data and systems biology tools into a single commercial platform for testing cancer hypotheses.

The consortium was launched last year as a network of research centers focused on building predictive models of cancer initiation, progression, and metastasis.

The new challenge focuses on computational methods for identifying blood gene expression signatures that can be used as markers of smoking exposure.

Up to five new grants will take a systems biology and omics approach to research the molecular interactions between pathogens and hosts.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Swiss contract research firm Intomics said today that it has inked an agreement to collaborate with Actelion Pharmaceuticals on research into neurodegenerative diseases.
