Scientists have created a new tool that targets not DNA, but RNA, and used it to correct a protein imbalance in cells from a dementia patient, restoring them to healthy levels.
The transcriptome gives a fuller picture of how genes are expressed. RNA sequencing allows for more detailed information on cellular pathways and expression levels in cancer studies.
For previously healthy children, brain infections are rare. But about one out of every 10,000 people who are exposed to common viruses like herpes simplex or influenza will develop a potentially deadly disease, encephalitis.
Skyhawk Therapeutics, focused on the discovery and development of small molecule therapeutics that correct RNA expression, has announced the close of $8 million in seed funding led by major family and biotech investors.
Researchers have released a software called Scikit-Ribo that can help biologists more accurately determine how much protein a given cell is making.
“The Disconnect Between the ‘Promise’ and the ‘Actual Impact’ is the Biggest Challenge in -Omics Based Technologies” – Zisis Kozlakidis
We’ve sat down with Dr Zisis Kozlakidis before his talk ‘Tracking Viruses in Space and Time’ at the Festival of Genomics in London 2018, were we talk virus.
