mRNA degradation controls differentiation state-dependent differences in transcript and splice variant abundance

Expression profiling experiments usually provide a static snapshot of messenger RNA (mRNA) levels. Improved understanding of the dynamics of mRNA synthesis and degradation will aid the development of sound bioinformatic models for control of gene expression. We studied mRNA stability in proliferating and differentiated myogenic cells using whole-genome exon arrays and reported...

Biobanking for Europe

Biobanks are well-organized resources comprising biological samples and associated information that are accessible to scientific investigation. Across Europe, millions of samples with related data are held in different types of collections. While individual collections can be well organized and accessible, the resources are subject to fragmentation, insecurity of funding and...

Calling on a million minds for community annotation in WikiProteins

WikiProteins enables community annotation in a Wiki-based system. Extracts of major data sources have been fused into an editable environment that links out to the original sources. Data from community edits create automatic copies of the original data. Semantic technology captures concepts co-occurring in one sentence and thus potential factual statements. In addition, indirect...

Mouse models for the Wolf–Hirschhorn deletion syndrome

Wolf–Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) is a deletion syndrome caused by segmental haploidy of chromosome 4p16.3. Its hallmark features include a ‘Greek warrior helmet’ facial appearance, mental retardation, various midline defects and seizures. The WHS critical region (WHSCR) lies between the Huntington’s disease gene, HD, and FGFR3. In mice, the homologs of these genes map to chromosome...
