We are recruiting a postdoc to study core promoters in vertebrate development, working with collaborators who use zebrafish as a model organism. The position is supported by the Wellcome Trust. For Continue Reading →
The group’s first preprint is now available on bioRxiv: Topologically associated domains are ancient features that coincide with Metazoan clusters of extreme noncoding conservation. This project is what Nathan was Continue Reading →
It’s that time of the year again when group members help organise and teach on the Computational Biology Week at the CSC. This year the main role was taken over Continue Reading →
TFBSTools (an R/bioconductor package for transcription factor binding site analysis) has been published in Bioinformatics. As a successor of our famous TFBS perl module, TFBSTools highly expands the functionality to provide efficient Continue Reading →
The paper associated with our GenomicInteractions R package is now out! You can read it here on the BMC Genomics website. The GenomicInteractions package came about because several members of Continue Reading →
All forms of life undergo a process known as transcription, which sees genetic information transferred from DNA to RNA, marking the beginning of gene expression. The ‘on-switch’ or core promoter Continue Reading →
Members from the group have been involved in teaching on the Computational Biology Week at the CSC, teaching researchers with little or no programming skills the basics of R and Continue Reading →
Supat Thongjuea successfully defends his thesis at the University of Bergen.
A perspective written by members of the group on the evolutionary dynamics and features of Conserved Noncoding Elements (CNEs) and the current hypotheses regarding the reason for their high levels Continue Reading →
A review on the epigenetic features and organisation of elements involved in long range gene regulation has just been published in Nucleic Acids Research.
