May 03, 2018

CTD2 scientists at UTSW employed a chemistry-first approach to map the associations between chemicals and genetic lesions in lung cancer. These chemical vulnerabilities may reveal novel druggable targets for lung cancer.

Cancer Discovery

Scientists proposed a framework to investigate the genomic alterations in neuroblastoma subtypes and identified TEAD4, a transcription factor, as a novel target for therapy.

Cell Systems

Researchers at the UCSD CTD2 Center created a parsimonious composite network (PCNet), which has high efficiency and performance over any single network.

April 24, 2018

Broad Institute CTD2 scientists developed a bioinformatic approach, RWEN, that predicts the responses of human cancer cell lines to a panel of compounds using the gene-expression profiles.

Cell Reports

CTD2 researchers at UCSF-1 present a quantitative map linking the influence of chemotherapeutic agents to tumor genetics. This chemical-genetic interaction map can aid in identifying new factors that dictate responses to chemotherapy and prioritize drug combinations.

Nature Communications

Scientists developed metaVIPER to assess protein activity in orphan tissues and single cells by integrative analysis of multiple, non-tissue-matched regulatory models. This approach could help to identify critical dependencies within molecularly heterogeneous sub-populations of cancer tissues.

April 14, 2018

Researchers developed MethylMix 2.0, an algorithm implemented in R that facilitates automated downloading and preprocessing of DNA methylation and gene expression datasets from pan-cancer studies. The tool can be used to identify disease specific hyper and hypomethylated genes and cancer subtyping.

Developmental Cell

Researchers at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine CTD2 Center use multidisciplinary studies to define a set of mechanical properties and cell behaviors to study how cells collaborate to elongate epithelial tubes. These studies will enable the understanding of cell migration through tissues.
