  1. Research

    In silico comparative characterization of pharmacogenomic missense variants

    Missense pharmacogenomic (PGx) variants refer to amino acid substitutions that potentially affect the pharmacokinetic (PK) or pharmacodynamic (PD) response to drug therapies. The PGx variants, as compared to d...

  2. Research

    GWAS and drug targets

    Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have revealed a large number of links between genome variation and complex disease. Among other benefits, it is expected that these insights will lead to new therapeutic ...

  3. Research

    Visualization of nucleotide substitutions in the (micro)transcriptome

    RNA-related applications of the next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies require context-specific interpretations: e.g., sequence mismatches may indicate sites of RNA editing, or uneven read coverage ofte...

    Reference-free SNP detection: dealing with the data deluge

    Reference-free SNP detection, that is identifying SNPs between samples directly from comparison of primary sequencing data with other primary sequencing data and not to a pre-assembled reference genome is an e...

    The structural network of Interleukin-10 and its implications in inflammation and cancer

    Inflammation has significant roles in all phases of tumor development, including initiation, progression and metastasis. Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a well-known immuno-modulatory cytokine with an anti-inflammat...
