See Nature’s website for more details on our approach to quantify the stability of DNA methylation and the implication of accumulated errors in propagating methylation from mother to daughter cells.

Single cell RNA-seq published Comments Off on Single cell RNA-seq published

Following an earlier work on single cell chromosomal maps (together with Peter Fraser’s group, Yaniv was leading it on our side – paper is here), we have now published Effi’s work on single cell RNA-seq (with Ido Amit’s people, paper is here). The crux of the Hi-C paper is the ability to look at several […]

The book of life? Comments Off on The book of life?

Since the release of the first human reference genome it becomes clearer that the analogy of the genome as the “book of life” (see wikipedia of “genome”) was misleading. While its chapters, paragraphs and footnotes are still elusive, the evidences suggest that genomes of multi-cellular eukaryotes encode information in much more complex ways. The book […]
