New insights in genomics of the human nucleolus

WASHINGTON: Saturday, March 27, 2010 Spanish and German scientists have offered insights into the 3-D genomics of the human nucleolus.

The research, conducted by researchers from the University of Regensburg and the Ludwig Maximilians University in Germany and the Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe in Spain, sheds new light on the functional organization of human genetic material.

Purpose. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) encourages grant applications under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to develop and implement a Knowledge Base (KB) and Coordinating Center for the Consortium of Cross Organ Mechanism-Associated Phenotypes for Genetic Analyses of Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Diseases (MAPGen for HLBS). This is one of two FOAs for the MAPGen program. The other FOA is for the Research Centers (RCs) of MAPGen and described separately in RFA-HL-11-005. The MAPGenKB will provide logistical and informatics support for the research across all RCs in the MAPGen consortium and synthesize the knowledge from the datasets of the RCs and other sources that are relevant to the goals of the MAPGen consortium. The data and tools generated from this consortium will be made available to the broad scientific community.

XGen Congress

Cambridge Healthtech Institute
Hilton San Diego Resort

March 15-16-17, 2010

Welcome to the Decade of the Genomics Revolution! Technological advances are now enabling faster and cheaper mapping of DNA/RNA allowing genomic comparisons and accelerating genomic discoveries. Cambridge Healthtech Institute is proud to launch The XGEN Congress to enable this genomic revolution. This week-long event features five conferences and demonstrates the unique cross fertilization of established genomic technologies with Now-Generation Sequencing and Quantitative PCR along with exciting applications of Copy Number Variation and Epigenetics. In addition, you will learn why data is the driving force that enables discovery at Sequencing Data Storage and Analysis.
