CTD2 scientists at Emory University identify novel role for large tumor suppressor 2, LATS2, as a regulator of the ASK1-mediated stress response pathway which may lead to new strategies to control cellular response to stress in normal cells and diseases.

UCSF scientists developed a bioinformatic approach, MAGNETIC, which integrates multi-omic data from cancer patients with pharmacogenomic data from cell lines into a small set of pathway-enriched gene modules. These modules connect tumor and cell line biomarkers and may inform therapeutic targets.
