RNA: Converting imaging-based cell biology to high-throughput biology

19 February 2014 | By Juha K. Rantala, Department of Biomedical Engineering and Knight Cancer Institute, Oregon Health and Science University

The last 10 years in biomedical research marks the period of deepening our understanding of the human genome. In the context of cancer research, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and related international genomics efforts have now revealed the full complexity of genomic aberrations in human cancers that are postulated to…

microRNA: Small RNA molecules of great utility as diagnostic biomarkers in lung cancer

18 April 2013 | By Michela A. Denti and Margherita Grasso, Laboratory of RNA Biology and Biotechnology, Centre for Integrative Biology, University of Trento, Mattia Barbareschi and Chiara Cantaloni, Unit of Surgical Pathology, Santa Chiara Hospital

In 1993, the laboratories of Victor Ambros and Gary Ruvkun, studying the larval development of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, found a small RNA molecule (22 nucleotides) which regulated the translation of the lin-14 gene in an unusual way1,2. They observed that the sequence of the tiny lin-4 RNA was complementary…
