Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Create 3D Map of Mouse Genome to Study How Genes Respond to Disease

The scientist also employed machine learning “to gauge how easily accessible genes are for transcription” in research that could lead to new clinical laboratory diagnostic tests Anatomic pathologists and clinical laboratories are of course familiar with the biological science of genomics, which, among other things, has been used to map the human genome. But did you know that a three-dimensional (3D) map of a genome has been created and that it is helping scientists understand how DNA regulates...

Pathologists Will Benefit from Cancer Research to Describe 50 Tumor Types

Goal is to map genetic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic changes in various cancer types Surgical pathologists are likely to gain great benefit from a worldwide research collaboration that has $500 million in funding, and whose participants plan to identify and publish data about the genetic complexities involved in at least 50 different types of tumors. It is a research project that will directly contribute to the development of new and more precise clinical laboratory tests. This research is...
