    Fungal infections, such as candidiasis caused by Candida, pose a problem of growing medical concern. In developed countries, the incidence of Candida infections is increasing due to the higher survival of susceptible ...
  • Delli Ponti, Riccardo, 1987-; Armaos, Alexandros; Marti, Stefanie; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano (Frontiers, 2018)
    To compare the secondary structure profiles of RNA molecules we developed the CROSSalign method. CROSSalign is based on the combination of the Computational Recognition Of Secondary Structure (CROSS) algorithm to predict ...
  • González-Torres, Pedro; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973- (Frontiers, 2018)
    The halophilic bacterium Salinibacter ruber is an abundant and ecologically important member of halophilic communities worldwide. Given its broad distribution and high intraspecific genetic diversity, S. ruber is considered ...

    As a part of the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE efforts in capacity building, we present here 10 steps to facilitate researchers getting started in genome assembly and genome annotation. The guidelines given are broadly applicable, ...
  • Dyke, Stephanie O. M.; De Argila, Jordi Rambla; Flicek, Paul (Nature Research, 2018)
    The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) proposes a data access policy model-"registered access"-to increase and improve access to data requiring an agreement to basic terms and conditions, such as the use of ...
  • Lochmüller, Hanns; Badowska, Dorota M.; Thompson, Rachel; Knoers, Nine V.; Aartsma-Rus, Annemieke; Gut, Ivo Glynne; Wood, Libby; Harmuth, Tina; Durudas, Andre; Graessner, Holm; Schaefer, Franz; Riess, Olaf; RD-Connect consortium; NeurOmics consortium; EURenOmics consortium (Nature Research, 2018)
    Although individually uncommon, rare diseases (RDs) collectively affect 6-8% of the population. The unmet need of the rare disease community was recognized by the European Commission which in 2012 funded three flagship ...
  • Diss, Guillaume; Lehner, Ben, 1978- (eLife, 2018)
    A key question in human genetics and evolutionary biology is how mutations in different genes combine to alter phenotypes. Efforts to systematically map genetic interactions have mostly made use of gene deletions. However, ...
  • Martínez Abadías, Neus; Mateu-Estivill, Roger; Sastre-Tomas, Jaume; Motch Perrine, Susan; Yoon, Melissa; Robert Moreno, Alexandre; Swoger, Jim; Russo, Lucia; Kawasaki, Kazuhiko (eLife, 2018)
    The earliest developmental origins of dysmorphologies are poorly understood in many congenital diseases. They often remain elusive because the first signs of genetic misregulation may initiate as subtle changes in gene ...
  • Lethin, Connie; Rahm Hallberg, Ingalill; Renom-Guiteras, Anna; Verbeek, Hilde; Saks, Kai; Stolt, Minna; Zabalegui, Adelaida; Soto-Martin, Maria; Nilsson, Christer (BioMed Central, 2019)
    BACKGROUND: Dementia is a syndrome, with a wide range of symptoms. It is important to have a timely diagnosis during the disease course to reduce the risk of medication errors, enable future care planning for the patient ...
