Genetic Mechanism Behind Cancer-Causing Mutations
Researchers at Indiana University has identified a genetic mechanism that is likely to drive mutations that can lead to cancer.
How to Unlock Inaccessible Genes
An international team of biologists has discovered how specialized enzymes remodel the extremely condensed genetic material in the nucleus of cells in order to control which genes can be used.
Viral Gene Editing System Corrects Genetic Liver Disease
Penn study has implications for developing safe therapies for an array of rare diseases via new gene cut-and-paste methods.
Mapping Regulatory Elements
Systematically searching DNA for regulatory elements indicates limits of previous thinking
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
'Junk' DNA Plays Role in Preventing Breast Cancer
Supposed "junk" DNA, found in between genes, plays a role in suppressing cancer, according to new research by Universities of Bath and Cambridge.
Genome-Wide Study Yields Markers of Lithium Response
An international consortium of scientists has identified a stretch of chromosome that is associated with responsiveness to the mood-stabilizing medication lithium among patients with bipolar disorder.
A Cancer’s Surprise Origins, Caught in Action
First demonstration of a melanoma arising from a single cell.
Understanding the Mechanisms Blocking Cancer Cell Growth
DNA damage can lead to gene inactivation or deregulation and cause various diseases such as cancer; however, many DNA repair mechanisms allow cells to survive against such damage.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.

Laser Capture Microdissection and Microarray Profiling of Human Prenatal Brain Development

Brainspan

The BrainSpan atlas of the developing human brain is designed as a foundational resource for studying transcriptional mechanisms involved in human brain development. The resource is the outcome of an ARRA-funded grant through the National Institutes of Health to a consortium consisting of the Allen Institute for Brain Science; Yale University; the University of Southern California; Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology, Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging; and the University of California, Los Angeles, with strong collaborative support from the Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program, which is part of the Intramural Research Program of NIMH, NIH.

A major component of BrainSpan is genome-wide transcriptional profiling aimed at the identification of transcriptional programs differentially active at different stages of brain maturation throughout development. One data modality included in this atlas is laser capture microdissection and subsequent microarray profiling of finely dissected tissue samples from subdivisions throughout the prenatal brain (mid-prenatal stage, 19-24 post-conception weeks (pcw)). This white paper describes the methods and processes used to generate this gene expression data.
