Lin Q., Weidner C. I., Costa I. G., Marioni, R., Ferreira M. R. P. , Deary I. J., Wagner W., DNA methylation levels at individual age-associated CpG sites can be indicative for life expectancy?, Aging, accepted.
Andre Camara, who was jointly co-supervised by Prof. Ricardo Prudencio and our group, has successfully completed his Ph.D. degree at the Federal University of Pernambuco. His dissertation proposed a new methodology for prediction of drug-protein interactions by combining multiple information…
Together with the cell biology department, we have investigated changes in histone modifications and binding of the master regulator Pu.1 during dendritic cell differentiation. We have derived a computational approach to detect further co-binding partners of PU.1 uncovering an regulatory…
Fabio Ticconi has just joined the group as a Ph.D. candidate. Welcome!
Marcelo Freitas will give a talk on the International Federation of Classification Societies. He will discuss about this lattest work on prediction of signatures from highly dimensional DNA methylation data for prediction of patient age.
In Hanzellman et al., we show how senescence-associated DNA hypermethylation occurs at specific sites in the genome and reflects functional changes in the course of replicative senescence.
Eduardo Gusmao will give a talk on the latest developments of the DNase-Seq footprinting method HINT on the Regulatory Genomics Special Interest Group at ISMB.
