Featured article: Defining human RFX transcription factors

RFX transcription factors are evolutionary conserved proteins involved in a plethora of biological processes in development and disease. Extensive analysis of large-scale experimental datasets allowed a detailed characterization of the whole human RFX gene family, including functional domain composition, differential tissue expression, target genes and upstream regulators.

Featured software: A new resource for metagenomic analyses

A-GAME is a novel powerful and versatile system that incorporates selected bioinformatics tools and workflows for the assembly and annotation of environmental DNA sequence data for functional metagenomics experiments, aiming to identify candidate genes with potential biotechnological application.
