A recent paper, published in Translational Psychiatry, uses monocyte gene expression to gain insight into childhood trauma, suicide risk and […]
Researchers at Tongji University, Shanghai, have developed a large-scale curated database that integrates tumour microenvironment (TME) single-cell transcriptomic data, known […]
The promise of single-cell gene expression data Genomic data are an excellent source of novel disease biomarkers and targets. In […]
The genetic information of a cancerous tumour is typically obtained by sequencing the tumour cells together, rather than analysing them […]
Introduction: Single-cell sequencing technology has been advanced by the falling sequencing costs, a boom in microfluidics and combinatorial indexing strategies. […]
A team of researchers have conducted a metatranscriptomic characterisation study of patients with COVID-19 and found specific immune-associated host transcriptional […]
Arianne Shahvisi is a Senior Lecturer in Ethics at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. We managed to have a chat with Arianne ahead of her speaking at the Festival of Genomics, to get her take on the ‘coloniality’ of health and how the much-hyped advent of Whole Genome Sequencing might play a role in exasperating social injustices.
