  1. 1. Network and gene expression analyses for understanding protein function

    Author : Oliver Frings; Erik Sonnhammer; Rune Linding; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biological networks; network inference; network analysis; clustering; network module; network crosstalk; expression analysis; gene signature; biomarker; biokemi; inriktning teoretisk kemi; Biochemistry with Emphasis on Theoretical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Biological function is the result of a complex network of functional associations between genes or their products. Modeling the dynamics underlying biological networks is one of the big challenges in bioinformatics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microarray Based Gene Expression Analysis in Cancer Research

    Author : Cecilia Laurell; Joakim Lundberg; Peter Nilsson; Karin Dahlman-Wright; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adrenocortical tumour; apoptosis; cancer; classification; gene expression; microarray; p53; RNA amplification; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Biotechnological inventions during the 20th century have resulted in a wide range of approaches for explorations in the functional genomics field. Microarray technology is one of the recent advances which have provided us with snapshots of which genes are expressed in cells of various tissues and diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tumour evolution and novel biomarkers in breast cancer

    Author : Jana Biermann; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; breast cancer; gene signature; molecular biomarkers; tumour clonality; genomic instability; Swedish haemangioma cohort;

    Abstract : Several gene signatures have been proposed in the past two decades to improve outcome prediction for breast cancer patients and to guide treatment decisions. Current treatment guidelines, however, primarily focus on established clinicopathological features. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular morbidity and metabolic signature in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

    Author : Mitra Nadali; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular mortality; Rheumatoid arthritis; metabolic signature;

    Abstract : Background and objectives: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease with excess risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The treatment of RA by anti-inflammatory drugs has dramatically been improved over the resent decades. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transcriptome and Proteome Analysis using Signature Tags

    Author : Charlotta Agaton; KTH; []
    Keywords : functional genomics; 3´-end signature tags; pyrosequencing; amplification; PrEST; chromosome 21; polyclonal antibodies; dual expression; affinity purification;

    Abstract : With the full sequence of the human genome now available, anexciting era in biomedical research has started. The sequenceprovides information about all our genes and greatly increasesthe scope to compare genetic activities in different cells, toanalyze genetic variation between individuals and betweendifferent species and, most importantly, to investigatesystematically the whole genome in a gene-by-gene manner, andthus increase our understanding of gene function.
