Alternative splicing detection workflow needs a careful combination of sample prep and bioinformatics analysis
RNA-Seq provides remarkable power in the area of biomarkers discovery and disease characterization. Two crucial steps that affect RNA-Seq experiment results are Library Sample Preparation (LSP) and Bioinformat...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S2
Tumour markers are standard tools for the differential diagnosis of cancer. However, the occurrence of nonspecific symptoms and different malignancies involving the same cancer site may lead to a high proporti...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S3
The high throughput of modern NGS sequencers coupled with the huge sizes of genomes currently analysed, poses always higher algorithmic challenges to align short reads quickly and accurately against a referenc...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S4
adLIMS: a customized open source software that allows bridging clinical and basic molecular research studies
Many biological laboratories that deal with genomic samples are facing the problem of sample tracking, both for pure laboratory management and for efficiency. Our laboratory exploits PCR techniques and Next Ge...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S5
Riboswitches are cis-acting regulatory RNA elements prevalently located in the leader sequences of bacterial mRNA. An adenine sensing riboswitch cis-regulates adeninosine deaminase gene (add) in Vibrio vulnificusCitation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S6
The understanding of mechanisms and functions of microRNAs (miRNAs) is fundamental for the study of many biological processes and for the elucidation of the pathogenesis of many human diseases. Technological a...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 9):S7
