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 ...

ICBR Proteomics & Mass Spectrometry (PM) aims to bring single-cell proteomics and metabolomics technologies to customers
The cell is the basic unit of life. For multicellular organisms like animals and plants, each cell is different. Due to limited sensitivity, conventional ‘omic analyses require the input of tissues, organs or a mixture of thousands of cells, where information at the single-cell level has been diluted and averaged. This problem has severely limited our understanding of the intricate signaling and metabolic pathways and networks in different cells. In recent years, single-cell biology has become...

A New Method to Examine Human Dopamine Transporter in Peripheral Blood 
A team of UF neuroscientists led by Habibeh Khoshbouei, Ph.D., Pharm.D., Professor of Neuroscience and Psychiatry in the UF College of Medicine, has recently discovered a novel method using blood-borne immune cells to study the role of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the human brain.  This finding was reported in a publication titled ”A novel approach to study markers of dopamine signaling in peripheral immune cells” appearing in the Journal of Immunological Methods. While immunohistochemi...
