ICBR Contributes to First Genomic Sequence of COVID-19 in New Orleans, LA
While clinicians are working on the front lines to treat patients with COVID-19, researchers are working behind the scenes, investigating the viral life cycle and advancing new developments in therapeutics and vaccines. Critical to this research effort is determining the genetic code the virus uses for infection and propagation. UF | ICBR is doing its part to provide essential services to drive this research further; delivering support not only locally, but on a national scale. In a recent colla...

UF Research Community Joins Hands to Donate Gloves, Masks and Other PPE
The same personal protective equipment (PPE) that is used in research labs is also used in clinical settings. Currently, this equipment is incredibly valuable as health workers are on the front lines treating COVID-19. In keeping with the UF spirit of collaboration and innovation, researchers from across the University of Florida donated thousands of PPE to support local medical workers.The solicitation of the donation drive was orchestrated by UF|Research. The donated supplies, including gloves...

ICBR Cyberinfrastructure: Zoom into Security
Recent information has shown that Zoom is not able to encrypt ALL methods of entry into a meeting, i.e. by calling in on a phone. Although Zoom is doing its best to encrypt and secure our video meetings and chats, we should ensure all university data is securely handled and that we are acting exactly as we would in an office, (i.e. attire, language, etc.) in these meetings. There have been countless recent reports, both at UF and outside of the university, of “Zoombombing”  (when an uninvi...

BI associate scientist contributes to two publications
Bioinformatics associate scientist Fahong Yu, Ph.D. provided research assistance in two recent publications (2019). Oral epithelial cells (OEC) that line the oral cavity are the first line of defense against pathogenic organisms including viruses that infect the body through the oral route. The role of the OEC in triggering the immune response to viral infection is poorly understood. ICBR Bioinformatics expert Dr. Fahong Yu performed data analysis and was a key collaborator in a study performed ...

BI assistant scientist develops a tool for stratifying cancer patients
Bioinformatics assistant scientist Tongjun Gu Ph.D. has developed an advanced deep learning method to stratify cancer patients into clinically relevant subgroups and further identify the potential biomarkers between the subgroups. This will help with the development of personalized treatments and prognosis. The method can integrate multi-platform datasets like gene expression, miRNA expression, methylation, copy number alteration, and protein expression. It can also do transfer learning between ...
