    Pan-cancer analysis reveals technical artifacts in TCGA germline variant calls

    Cancer research to date has largely focused on somatically acquired genetic aberrations. In contrast, the degree to which germline, or inherited, variation contributes to tumorigenesis remains unclear, possibl...

    Application of nonsense-mediated primer exclusion (NOPE) for preparation of unique molecular barcoded libraries

    Recently we proposed efficient method to exclude undesirable primers at any stage of amplification reaction, here termed NOPE (NOnsense-mediated Primer Exclusion). According to this method, added oligonucleoti...

    Uncovering the transcriptomic and epigenomic landscape of nicotinic receptor genes in non-neuronal tissues

    Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) play an important role in cellular physiology and human nicotine dependence, and are closely associated with many human diseases including cancer. For example, previo...

    High-throughput validation of ceRNA regulatory networks

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play multiple roles in tumor biology. Interestingly, reports from multiple groups suggest that miRNA targets may be coupled through competitive stoichiometric sequestration. Specifically, co...

    Genome-wide network-based pathway analysis of CSF t-tau/Aβ1-42 ratio in the ADNI cohort

    The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of total tau (t-tau) and Aβ1–42 are potential early diagnostic markers for probable Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The influence of genetic variation on these CSF biomarkers has be...

    Transversions have larger regulatory effects than transitions

    Transversions (Tv’s) are more likely to alter the amino acid sequence of proteins than transitions (Ts’s), and local deviations in the Ts:Tv ratio are indicative of evolutionary selection on genes. Whether the...
