Targeting the Achievement Gap: Strategies Toward Removing Inequities in Undergraduate Immunology Education.

Targeting the Achievement Gap: Strategies Toward Removing Inequities in Undergraduate Immunology Education.

A various pupil physique enriches the classroom with lived experiences, diversified skillsets, neighborhood and cultural information, resiliency, and altruistic pursuits, all crucial attributes that profit each the classroom and the STEM subject at giant. However, a persistent disparity in educational and academic attainment exists between under-represented minority (URM) and non-URM college students in STEM fields. …

Altered Iron Metabolism and Impact in Cancer Biology, Metastasis, and Immunology.

Altered Iron Metabolism and Impact in Cancer Biology, Metastasis, and Immunology.

Iron is a vital nutrient that performs a fancy position in most cancers biology. Iron metabolism should be tightly managed inside cells. Whilst elementary to many mobile processes and required for cell survival, extra labile iron is poisonous to cells. Increased iron metabolism is related to malignant transformation, most cancers development, drug resistance and immune …

Advances in the Immunology and Genetics of Leprosy.

Advances in the Immunology and Genetics of Leprosy.

Leprosy, a illness brought on by the intracellular parasite Mycobacterium leprae or Mycobacterium lepromatosis, has affected people for greater than 4,000 years and is a stigmatized illness even now. Since medical manifestations of leprosy sufferers current as an immune-related spectrum, leprosy is thought to be a perfect mannequin for finding out the interplay between host …

Genome editing. The new frontier of genome engineering with CRISPR-Cas9

Genome editing. The new frontier of genome engineering with CRISPR-Cas9

The creation of facile genome engineering utilizing the bacterial RNA-guided CRISPR-Cas9 system in animals and vegetation is remodeling biology. We evaluate the historical past of CRISPR (clustered often interspaced palindromic repeat) biology from its preliminary discovery by way of the elucidation of the CRISPR-Cas9 enzyme mechanism, which has set the stage for outstanding developments utilizing …

The systems biology markup language (SBML): a medium for representation and exchange of biochemical network models

The systems biology markup language (SBML): a medium for representation and exchange of biochemical network models

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) is a complete, authoritative and well timed knowledgebase of human genes and genetic issues compiled to assist human genetics analysis and training and the follow of medical genetics. Started by Dr Victor A. McKusick because the definitive reference Mendelian Inheritance in Man, OMIM (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/omim/) is now distributed electronically by …

An improved Greengenes taxonomy with explicit ranks for ecological and evolutionary analyses of bacteria and archaea

An improved Greengenes taxonomy with explicit ranks for ecological and evolutionary analyses of bacteria and archaea

Reference phylogenies are crucial for providing a taxonomic framework for interpretation of marker gene and metagenomic surveys, which continue to reveal novel species at a remarkable rate. Greengenes is a dedicated full-length 16S rRNA gene database that provides users with a curated taxonomy based on de novo tree inference. We developed a ‘taxonomy to tree’ …

A greedy algorithm for aligning DNA sequences

A greedy algorithm for aligning DNA sequences

For aligning DNA sequences that differ only by sequencing errors, or by equivalent errors from other sources, a greedy algorithm can be much faster than traditional dynamic programming approaches and yet produce an alignment that is guaranteed to be theoretically optimal. We introduce a new greedy alignment algorithm with particularly good performance and show that …

dbSNP: the NCBI database of genetic variation

dbSNP: the NCBI database of genetic variation

In response to a necessity for a common catalog of genome variation to deal with the large-scale sampling designs required by affiliation research, gene mapping and evolutionary biology, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has established the dbSNP database [S.T.Sherry, M.Ward and K. Sirotkin (1999) Genome Res., 9, 677-679]. Submissions to dbSNP shall be built-in with …
