"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.
