Research Highlights

"Infants Time Their Smiles to Make Their Moms Smile

The results of our analysis show that by the time infants reach 4 months of age both mothers and infants time their smiles in a purposeful, goal-oriented manner. In our study, mothers consistently attempted to maximize the time spent in mutual smiling, while infants tried to maximize mother-only smile time.

"Non-coding RNAs profiling in head and neck cancers

Cancer: The role of 'non-coding' genes Transcriptomic profiling of head and neck tumors suggests a prominent role for non-protein-coding genes in carcinogenesis.

"Launch of Data-Driven Music-Streaming Site: Musikipedia.org

CCS Postdoctoral Researcher Mohamed Sordo has launched Musikipedia.org, a powerful web application for analyzing and streaming music. Musikipedia stands at the forefront of music analysis . . .

"Identification of BRAF 3’UTR Isoforms in Melanoma

BRAF protein kinase is a crucial player in melanoma, as it belongs to the highly oncogenic RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK signaling pathway . . .

"UM Launches ‘MAP’ Digital Tool for Affordable Housing Needs

This project focuses on improving housing opportunities for residents of low- to moderate-income Miami neighborhoods . . .

"A Rule-Based Approach to Extracting Relations from Music Tidbits

Extracted relations are evaluated intrinsically by assessing their linguistic quality, as well as extrinsically by assessing the extent to which they map an existing music knowledge base.

"Mining library and university data to understand library use patterns

Library data are often hard to analyze because these data come from unconnected sources, and the data sets can be very large.

"Essentiality and centrality in protein interaction networks revisited

e-MDSets may provide a new method of evaluating the core proteins of an organism.

"3D Imaging of Axons in Transparent Spinal Cords from Rodents & Primates

The histological assessment of spinal cord tissue in three dimensions has previously been very time consuming and prone to errors of interpretation. Advances in tissue clearing have significantly improved visualization of fluorescently labelled axons.

"Distinct Transcriptomic Features and B-Cell Populations in the Mouse Spleen

Splenic transitional B-cells (T1 and T2) are selected to avoid self-reactivity and to safeguard against autoimmunity . . .

"Prognostic models in coronary artery disease: Cox and network approaches

There may be characteristic factors involved in prognostic stratification whose complexity suggests an exploration beyond the analysis provided by the still fundamental Cox approach.

"Integrative analysis of cancer imaging readouts by networks

Illustrating how networks can integrate imaging data to explain cancer complexity, and assess potential pre-clinical and clinical impact.

"Comorbidity networks: beyond disease correlations

A new paradigm of data-intensive biomedicine is naturally leading to novel inference tools, dealing in particular with complex diseases and comorbidities.

"Regions of homozygosity identified by oligonucleotide SNP arrays

This study demonstrates that ROHs are much more frequent than previously recognized and often reflect parental relatedness, ascertain autosomal recessive diseases or unravel UPD in many cases.
