  • Trouble with Cyclin D3 in the Golub dataset

    Dear ALL,

    Many of you will be aware of the Golub et al data, one of the first
    high-throughput gene expression datasets ever, used for teaching
    in many places. I recently noticed that for one of the genes,
    the expression pattern in their famous figure does not seem
    to match the underlying data (as they are available via the
    R package, and described in Wim Krijnen's wonderful book
    "Applied Statistics for Bioinformatics using R".) But maybe
    I'm just missing or misunderstanding something.

    From the Figure of the original publication, it is clear that
    expression values of Cyclin D3 for AML are mostly below 0, cf. the forth row in


    However, inspecting the data, and concordant with e.g. Figure 2.4 of the book,
    "Boxplot of ALL and AML expression values of gene CCND3 Cyclin D3",
    it is clear that for AML, expression values of Cyclin D3 are above 0.

    I checked that there is only one Cyclin D3 in the dataset; I'm not sure
    about the possibility that the data were normalized differently; I checked
    some other genes, and I found no such problem for any other gene, so
    I'm not sure that it's a normalization issue.

    Can anyone help and shed some light on this issue?
    Thanks!!

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
