Artificial Intelligence in bulk and single-cell RNA-seq: where are we?

Here our review on learning approaches for the analysis of large-scale RNA-sequencing datasets in cancer.
We present the major solutions to disentangle tumor heterogeneity of transcriptome profiles for an effective improvement of patient management, check it out!

The Italian SARS-Cov-2 screening

Together FPO-IRCCS Candiolo units, we are actively monitoring the evolution of SARS-CoV-2 in Piedmont, Italy. The lab is mapping the virus lineages that are circulating in the region. Here some updates!

MC farewell

Mariachiara, a very talented intership student, left the lab to complete her education at the University of Milan. We had lots of fun with Mariachiara and she opened our road to RNA methylation! Good luck MC!

The Pandemic

In the horrible pandemic time the lab did not stop. We were lucky and determined enough to smartly work on our research projects.

'Less is more', our paradigm shift in gene set analysis is out!

We introduced a probabilistic modelling, namely GSECA, to identify altered biological process relevant for complex phenotypes from heterogeneous high-volume RNA-seq data.

Have a look at our pancancer analysis of PTEN loss and its role in modulating immune-related processes across cancer types!

First official C.G.B. poster

Serena presented GSECA at the BITS meeting in Palermo. This was the first offical presentation of our, and her, novel paradim to handle heterogeneity of high-volume RNA-seq data. Less is more!
