Welcome to the BioMed Central Bioinformatics and Genomics gateway, highlighting the latest news and information from BioMed Central and from across the web, on Bioinformatics and Genomics.
A replication study and meta-analysis suggests that rs12081765, rs1532269, rs17301249 and rs7305646 genetic variants do not have a role as genetic predictors of tumor necrosis factor inhibitor treatment outcome in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
A study of 17,826 HIV positive people in Nigeria found an increased risk of Kaposi Sarcoma, but not Cervical Cancer or Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, when compared to the general population.
Traveling slow waves comparable to those previously seen to spread two-dimensionally through the laminar neocortex in sleeping or anaesthetised mammals, are now observed to propagate as 3-d plumes through the nuclear neuronal cytoarchitecture of avian brains.
Mariele Gatto and colleagues discuss the development of new therapies for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and comment on how the off-label use of biologics in the treatment of some aspects of SLE has led to promising results.
A machine-learning paradigm reveals a connection between autistic behavioral profiles and genetic disorders carrying an increased risk for autism spectrum disorder.

Previously published by Henry Stewart Publications, Human Genomics has now launched and is accepting submissions under BioMed Central's open access platform. Edited by Prof. Vasilis Vasiliou, the journal aims to facilitate rapid publication and stimulate discussion within the human genomic field. The journal welcomes manuscripts relating to the application of genomic analysis in the understanding, treatment and diagnosis of complex and Mendelian diseases, as well as reports of the genomic analysis of adverse drug reactions, drug efficacy and safety.
