PGC1-alpha was shown to be responsible for the regulation of glutamine metabolism in HER2+ breast cancer cells, providing important information about altered metabolism in this disease.
A comparison of statistical methods for expression analysis in a personalized medicine context reveals that in small studies outlying degree methods may be a useful alternative to Zscore or Rscore.
Hayden and Teplow review molecular and cell biology insights from in vivo, in vitro and in silico studies of amyloid β-protein (Aβ) oligomers, and limitations to be considered in these results.
In a simulation model, accidental laboratory escape of a genetically engineered influenza virus may not be detected, and containment of disease is not guaranteed, suggesting that adequate preparedness plans for virus escape are needed.

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.
