Our lab Ph.D. candidate Yuhao has published a paper entitled "Evaluation of efficiency prediction algorithms and development of ensemble model for CRISPR/Cas9 gRNA selection". Congratulation!
We published two papers online this month! One paper, led by Gongyu, was published in Nucleic Acids Research entitled "OncoDB: an interactive online database for analysis of gene expression and viral infection in cancer". The other paper, led by Xinyi, was published in International Journal of Cancer entitled "Impact of Human Papillomavirus on the Tumor [...]
We have received an NIH R35 grant (2021-2026) to support our ongoing project: "Combined Computational and Experimental Analyses of Gene Regulation by MicroRNAs". This project has been continuously funded by the NIH since 2010, and results from this impactful work have been cited by thousands of publications.
We received an NIH RADx pilot grant on COVID-19 screening using our newly developed RT-LAMP assays. This project is in collaboration with Dr. Nahed Ismail from Department of Pathology.
We received the UIC Chancellor’s Translational Research Initiative (CTRI) Award to develop a saliva-based diagnostic assay for COVID-19 screening. Xin is the PI of this grant.
Xinyi`s papers “A MicroRNA Expression Signature as Prognostic Marker for Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma” and “A prognostic gene expression signature for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma” have been published!
We received an NIH R56 grant "Regulation of blood coagulation by the ZPI/PZ anticoagulant system". Xin is the PI of this grant.
Our lab has moved to UIC, after staying at Washington University in St. Louis for 13 years.
