Barcelona, 18th July 2018.- Epigenetics, the study of heritable changes in gene expression that don’t involve changes in the DNA sequence, is an extraordinarily active research field in biology nowadays. Epigenetic modifications integrate environmental and genetic information to give a certain...
Researchers at the Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) participated in a study on Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome (CMS), a heterogeneous disorder causing fatigable muscle weakness. Hanns Lochmüller, visiting scientist at the CNAG-CRG, and former coordinator of the EU funded project...
Barcelona, 6th June 2018.- New research led by Holger Heyn at the CNAG-CRG, presents a sophisticated computational framework to analyze single-cell gene expression levels, scalable to process millions of individual cells. The work, published in the current issue of the scientific journal...
Barcelona, 5th June 2018.- In recent years it has become evident that the spatial organisation of the genome is key for its function. This organisation depends on a number of factors, the cohesin protein complex being one of them. This essential complex is present in the cells in two versions that...
Barcelona, 9th May 2018 - The CNAG-CRG is one of the top European genome analysis centers. Its mission is to carry out projects in DNA sequence analysis for the improvement of quality of life in collaboration with the European and International Research Community. To keep up with this objective,...
Barcelona, 19th April 2018 – The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), DAF, an advised fund of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, today announced new funding for 85 projects to support the Human Cell Atlas (HCA), a global effort to map every type of cell in the healthy human body as a resource for...
