Discovery may lead to personalized medicine for infectious diseases

An infectious disease is a condition in which a microorganism (virus, bacterium, or parasite) manages to penetrate and multiply in the human body, causing direct damage to the body's cells. The damage to the body may also ...

Genetics

Upgraded computational tool gets more out of multi-omics data

Despite the astounding advances made in understanding the biologic underpinnings of cancer, many cancers are missing obvious genetic drivers. When scientists can't pinpoint the factors that drive cancer, treating it can be ...
