The LifeTime Initiative, which includes EMBL, published a perspective piece that explains their suggested approach to turn to molecular and cellular biology for personalised medicine.
EMBL-EBIA group of European scientists advocate for the integration of the newest computational tools, #AI, and molecular & cell biology into #personalisedmedicine. An ambitious new road map for @LifeTimeIni, backed by our very own @DrP_stuff and John Marioni.
EMBL-EBIThe Transforming Genomic Medicine Initiative aims to improve information content of clinical reporting from genomic sequence information. This collaborative effort from EMBL-EBI, @EdinburghUni and others will help improve #genomicmedicine in the clinic.
Scientists have investigated a complex mesh of muscle fibres inside the human heart. The study sheds light on questions asked centuries ago.
EMBL-EBINew research brings a breakthrough to a 500-year old enigma posed by Leonardo da Vinci: what is the function of the complex network of fibres lining the heart?🫀
The team included collaborators at EMBL-EBI @ewanbirney, @MRC_LMS & @CSHL. #HeartResearch
SARS-CoV-2 sequence data should be submitted to open access databases to enable the international scientific community to understand and fight COVID-19
EMBL-EBIThe #COVID19 pandemic has brought an urgent need for rapid international sharing of #SARSCoV2 data. Choose #openaccess and submit your data to the INSDC databases supported by @emblebi, @DDBJapan and @NCBI
Where do genes get their names from? The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee published updated rules to name human genes
EMBL-EBIWondering how to name novel #HumanGenes? To get some fresh ideas, check out the updated guidelines published by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee @genenames 🧬
More than 200 000 bacterial genomes and from the human gut ecosystem collated into a single large microbiome database
EMBL-EBIResearchers compiled over 200 000 bacterial genomes & 170 million protein sequences from the human gut #microbiome into the most comprehensive catalogue to date 🦠. The international team was led our @alexmsalmeida & @robdfinn
Researchers join forces to predict the risk of infectious disease outbreaks as part of the Versatile Emerging infectious disease Observatory
EMBL-EBIThe Versatile Emerging infectious disease Observatory is an international consortium that will use laboratory research, field studies and #bigdata to develop a system to predict the risk and impact of future #infectiousdisease outbreaks
Futuris travels to Marseille and Cambridge to look at two European projects pooling and sharing data to help the scientific community beat COVID-19. #Futuris
EMBL-EBIMore than 50 000 people from 170 countries accessed our #COVID19 Data Portal in the last two months. Take a look behind the scenes to see how the project is evolving. @euronews #COVID19data #COVID19research
Ellie McDonagh is Open Targets' new Informatics Science Director. Open Targets is an innovative partnership between academia and the private sector that provides a platform for identifying potential drug targets linked with certain diseases
EMBL-EBIA warm #welcome to @EllieMcDonagh, @targetvalidate’s new Informatics Scientific Director, who is looking to help fill in the knowledge gaps in #drugdiscovery and disease biology. #drugtargets
