Important roles of microRNAs (miRNAs) in regulating the host response during viral infection have begun to be defined. However, little is known about the functional roles of miRNAs within an in vivoacute viral encephalitis model. Therefore, researchers from the University of Manitoba identified global changes in miRNA expression during acute herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) encephalitis (HSVE) in mice...

The occurrence of drug resistance limits the efficacy of platinum compounds in the cure of ovarian carcinoma. Since microRNAs (miRNAs) may contribute to this phenomenon by regulating different aspects of tumor cell response, the aim of a recent study by researchers from Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori sought to exploit the analysis of expression of miRNAs in platinum sensitive/resistant cells in an attempt to identify potential regulators of drug response...

(Aug 14, 2013) – LC Sciences announces its new RNA-Seq Bioinformatics Service. Continuing advances in sequencing technologies, increases in the number of installed sequencers, and the decreasing cost of sequencing have all contributed to the generation of vast amounts of raw sequence data.  This has led to perhaps the largest challenge faced by scientist performing […]
