Understanding the Tumor Immune Microenvironment of Liver Cancer Understanding the Tumor Immune Microenvironment of Liver Cancer

Liver cancer has the third most lethality in the world, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) accounts for approximately 90% of primary liver cancer. Cancer immunotherapy has achieved remarkable results in clinical trials, while the therapeutic effects are uneven and the response rates in liver cancer and liver metastasized CRC are low.

In this webinar on 17 August - 10:00 (ET) Qiming Zhang of MIT and Peking University will join Shuyun Ding from Vazyme to discuss this research in further detail.

 Scientists determine the contribution of DNA recombinations to genomic diversity in health and disease
 
Scientists determine the contribution of DNA recombinations to genomic diversity in health and diseaseResearchers from Japan’s RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences, working with colleagues from all over the world, found that recombinations of particular genomic sequences, which are reproduced millions of times in the genome of each human cell, are common in both normal and disease states.
 
 
 Scientists expand entomological research using genome editing
 
Scientists expand entomological research using genome editingFanflow4Insects is a workflow method developed by researchers that annotates gene functions in insects. Researchers use functional annotation to learn about the biological identity of a gene. The new technique developed by the team makes use of transcribed sequence data as well as genome and protein sequence datasets.
 
 
 Fruit fly genome contains whole genomes of a kind of bacteria, study finds
 
Fruit fly genome contains whole genomes of a kind of bacteria, study findsA fruit fly genome is not a just made up of fruit fly DNA – at least for one fruit fly species. New research from the University of Maryland School of Medicine's (UMSOM) Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) shows that one fruit fly species contains whole genomes of a kind of bacteria, making this finding the largest bacteria-to-animal transfer of genetic material ever discovered.
