Meet Chuanhe Yu, Ph.D.: searching for the genetic switches linked to disease

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Chuanhe Yu, Ph.D. has always had an interest in genetics – the thousands of genes that make each of us unique. His research focuses on the growing field of epigenetics, which aims to better understand how environmental and lifestyle factors cause chain reactions, flipping the switch on genes and the  instructions they provide to guide […]

Tool of the trade: researcher applies artificial intelligence to uncover causes, risks for disease

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Some diseases, such as certain breast and colon cancers, are linked to genetic mutations passed down in families. But for many other diseases there are no direct genetic links that explain why the disease develops. That’s why Manolis Kellis, Ph.D. and his team are using artificial intelligence to uncover the hidden cause of disease. Dr. […]

Paper Published in Science Explores How a Genetic Mutation Causes Tumor Growth

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Article by Colette Rector, Public Affairs New research is shedding light on how a rare bone tumor develops. Zhiguo Zhang, Ph.D., a researcher at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, studied how a mutation contributes to bone tumor growth by impacting the epigenome — a series of chemical modifications that change how genes are […]

Foreseeing the Future of Vaccines

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Is there a new “omics” coming to health care? Here at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine we have epigenomics and pharmacogenomics. We have clinomics, and faithful readers of this blog know we love discussing genomics. Now, doctors at Mayo Clinic are pioneering a new field of research called vaccinomics. Their hope is to […]

Mayo Clinic Team Shares Comparison of Sequencing, Array Methods for DNA Methylation Profiling

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

What are the biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off? Think of it like this: In identical twins, why does one twin develop cancer or rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes and the other doesn’t? Their DNA is exactly the same. That’s epigenomics at play. While the DNA is the same, the network of chemical switches […]
