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 Microenvironment in Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma".
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.
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!
