transcriptome

I had the good fortune on Thursday to hear a fascinating talk on deep transcriptome analysis by Chris Mason, Assistant Professor, at the Institute for Computational Biomedicine at Cornell University. 

Several intriguing observations were presented during the talk.  I'll present the key points first and then discuss the data.

These data concern the human transcriptome, and at least some of the results are supported by  follow on studies with data from the pigmy tailed macaque.

Some of the most interesting points from Mason's talk were:

  1. A large

For the past few months, the shake-up that began with Next Generation DNA Sequencing has been forcing me to adjust to a whole new view of things going on inside of a cell. We've been learning things these past two years that are completely changing our understanding of the genome and how it works and it's clear we're never going back to the simple view we had before. What's changed? The two most striking changes, to me at least, are the new views of the way the genome is put together and what the cell does with the information. They just don't assemble chromosomes like ... Read more
