New Baliga Lab Publication in Cell Systems
The Baliga Lab’s Dr. Christopher Plaisier was the lead author of the study “Causal Mechanistic Regulatory Network for Glioblastoma Deciphered Using Systems Genetics Network Analysis” which published online in Cell Systems on July 14. Dr. Plaisier wrote a summary of the research:
- Using data from TCGA and ENCODE, ISB researchers developed integrative database and analysis platforms that provide insight about the underpinnings of glioblastoma multiforme.
- Researchers developed a way to intelligently discover combinations of small RNA molecules and drugs that can lead to synergistic effects.
- They also Identified a never before seen association between increased levels of immune molecules, tumor immune cell infiltration, and decreased patient survival.
