2nd Tissue Models & Phenotypic Screening Conf...

The 2nd Tissue Models & Phenotypic Screening Conference will take place on May 5 – 7, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. Over the years, three-dimensional (3D) models have become more favored over two-dimensional models (2D) because they better mimic the in vivo environment. Though 3D models have the potential to reduce failure in early stage drug discovery, there are still many questions to be answered: What are the gaps...

The Human Protein Atlas

SciLifeLab have announced that The Human Protein Atlas project has reached a major milestone by releasing protein data for more than 80% of the human protein-coding genes and RNA expression data for more than 90% of the genes. The Protein Atlas has also been restructured into 4 sub-atlases, of which the largest, The Normal Tissue Atlas, now provides the first comprehensive distribution map of both protein and gene expression...

The NCI is offering $20M to projects that move can...

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) faces a growing data problem. As the scale of its projects grows–one initiative is expected to generate 2.5 petabytes of data–downloading results for analysis on local systems becomes impractical. Recognizing this, the NCI has allocated $20 million for cloud-based genomics pilot projects. Having spent last year gathering feedback on what users want from cloud-based cancer...

NIH publishes first Alzheimer’s genomics dat...

The National Institutes of Health said it has made available for researchers the first batch of genome sequence data from the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP). Established in February 2012 by a Presidential Initiative, the ADSP is a national research project with the aim of finding ways to prevent or effectively treat the memory-stealing disease. Using large-scale genome sequencing, the National Human...

New Genome-Editing Method

A new startup, backed with $43 million in venture investments, aims to develop treatments that could cure inherited diseases with a one-time fix based on a new method of genome editing. The method offers great precision in changing the DNA sequence of a genome and can potentially treat diseases that other forms of gene therapy cannot. The new method, to be commercialized by Editas Medicine, is based on a genome-editing system...
