Analytic Technique for Assessment of RNAi by Similarity (ATARiS) takes advantage of patterns in RNAi data across multiple samples in order to enrich for RNAi reagents whose phenotypic effects relate to suppression of their intended targets.
Researchers show that basal- and luminal-derived prostate tumors have distinct molecular signatures.
TARGET investigators used whole-exome, genome and transcriptome sequencing to determine the spectrum of somatic mutation in high-risk neuroblastoma.
Researchers introduce how CRISPR interference (CRISPRi) can efficiently repress expression of targeted genes in Escherichia coli, with no detectable off-target effects, and can be used to repress multiple target genes simultaneously.
Researchers describe a novel method to discern molecular interactions specific to certain molecular contexts.
The authors use ultracomplex pooled shRNA libraries (25 shRNAs/gene) to identify high-confidence hit genes for a given phenotype and effective shRNAs and construct double-shRNA libraries from these to systematically measure genetic interactions between hits.
Sequencing the tyrosine kinome and downstream signaling genes in high-risk pediatric ALL cases showed no somatic mutations aside from JAK mutations and 1 FLT3 mutation.
Wnt/β-catenin signaling plays a key role in the pathogenesis of colon and other cancers; emerging evidence indicates that oncogenic β-catenin regulates several biological processes essential for cancer initiation and progression.
The study reported that alterations of the lymphoid transcription factor gene IKZF1 (IKAROS) are associated with a high risk of treatment failure in B-ALL and approximately 20% of B-ALL cases have genetic alterations that activate kinase signaling.
