Effects of Drought on Gene Expression in Maize Revealed by RNA-Seq

Drought stress affects cereals especially during the reproductive stage. Researchers at Virginia Tech University studied the maize (Zea mays) drought transcriptome using RNA-Seq analysis to compare drought treated and well-watered fertilized ovary and basal leaf meristem tissue. More drought responsive ...

New approaches toward discovery of novel translocations

Chromosome rearrangements that result in gene fusions have important roles in the initial steps of tumorigenesis, especially in leukemias and lymphomas, but the biological and clinical impact of gene fusions in common solid tumors are less understood. Researchers at the ...
