10 Simple Rules for Sharing Human Genomic Data

The Repositive team together with Springer Nature has recently formulated ten simple rules for sharing human genomic data. “These 10 Simple Rules have been developed from our combined experiences of working with human genomic data, data repositories and data users. We do not claim that these rules will eliminate every possible risk of data misuse. Rather, we hope that these… Continue reading

STW-Breed4Food Partnership programme

Together with Breed4Food, the Technology foundation STW launches the ambitious Breed4Food Partnership programme: ‘Predicting phenotypes of livestock’. The Breed4Food Partnership focusses on the development of novel genetic and genomic tools through innovative science, beneficial to the breeding, production and consumption of animal proteins with a strong commitment to responsible stewardship of animal resources. For this program a budget of €… Continue reading

Systematic integrative genomics, transcriptomics and ultra-deep proteomics analysis reveals novel insight in disease biology

Experts in proteomics from Utrecht University and next-generation DNA sequencing from the Hubrecht Institute/UMC Utrecht collaborated in a study to systematically determine the consequences of genetic variation on the transcriptome and proteome. The researchers applied ultra-deep quantitative proteomics, whole genome sequencing and RNA-seq to liver tissues from different inbred rat strains. One of these inbred rats, the spontaneously hypertensive rat… Continue reading
