Finding links and missing genes

Missing a gene may be less problematic than you’d think. This is one of the conclusions that emerge from the most extensive catalogue of structural variations – changes in large sections of a person’s DNA sequence – to date.

New method to study biological signalling networks

Clearing a path for cancer research

EMBL-EBI researchers develop a new computational method to study biological signalling networks in healthy and cancer cells
