Matthew Weirauch, PhD, a computational biologist with Cincinnati Children’s Center for Autoimmune and Genomic Etiology and the Divisions of Biomedical Informatics and Developmental Biology, discusses here the informatics effort behind a new study published in Nature Genetics. In the study,
From making a diagnosis to tailoring treatment to an individual to someday curing disease, precision genomics is having a profound impact on healthcare. Cincinnati Children’s Center for Pediatric Genomics and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine launched Precision Genomics
Alex Jiang is currently a sophomore at Cornell University majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Cognitive Science. In 2017, he participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Cincinnati Children’s under the mentorship of Anil Jegga,
A new video series featuring Cincinnati Children’s researchers explores how three of the world’s top children’s hospitals are working together on genomic research projects to understand the complexity of DNA. Peter S. White, PhD, and Anil Goud Jegga, DVM of the Division of Biomedical
CINCINNATI – Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center have described the first integrative analysis of disparate single-cell datasets applied to a single developmental system. The team used this approach to discover a new cellular source of GDNF, a protein
October 23, 2017—Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center are combining machine learning and systems biology to distinguish disease severity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a lung disease that kills an estimated 40,000 people annually in the United States. Using
Cincinnati Children’s and the University of Cincinnati have joined together to launch the first genomics conference in the Midwest region. Precision Genomics Midwest will be held Friday, May 19 at the Kingsgate Marriott Conference Center. The conference focuses on genomic research, clinical translation, and ethics.
Scientists have harnessed the power of genomic big data and animal models of to identify the underlying causes and potential new treatments for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a lung disease that kills an estimated 40,000 people annually in the United States.
The 2016 Research Annual Report of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation published in January celebrates the outstanding research contributions of its 951 faculty across 52 research divisions or centers. In its 168 pages, the report details facts and figures highlighting Cincinnati Children’s accomplishments as a powerhouse in the world of pediatric research.
A new open source software package called uQIust that enables protein and RNA structure prediction, molecular simulations, and retrieval and analysis of structural data is now available to investigators. It offers a versatile, efficient, and easy-to-use toolkit for macromolecular structure exploration and analysis, supporting ultrafast clustering and model quality assessment.
