Canada plays a major role in the international effort to catalogue and share the DNA sequences of cattle, says a researcher.
Genomic research has come a long way in recent years. Once the legal and regulatory issues are figured out, the research may provide the basis for a new data-driven care delivery model that could revolutionize health care.
Dartmouth researchers explored the type and number of connections in transcription factor networks to evaluate the role assortativity plays on robustness in a study published in PLOS Computational Biology in August.
A Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich team has shown that defects in the JAGN1 gene inhibit the function of a specific type of white blood cells, and account for a rare congenital immune deficiency that increases vulnerability to life-threatening infections.
