News Articles Featuring Ross Hardison

New statistical method improves genomic analyses

A new statistical method provides a more efficient way to uncover biologically meaningful changes in genomic data that span multiple conditions — such as cell types or tissues.

New tool reveals DNA structures that influence disease

Disruption of certain DNA structures — called topologically associating domains, or TADs — is linked with the development of disease, including some cancers. With its newly created algorithm that quickly locates and helps elucidate the complex functions of TADs, an international team of researchers is making it easier to study these important structures and help prevent disease.

Icefish Study Adds Another Color to the Story of Blood

The rainbow of pigments that animals use for blood illustrates a central truth about evolution

Icefish Study Adds Another Color to the Story of Blood

The Antarctic blackfin icefish is the only known vertebrate animal that lacks red blood cells containing hemoglobin. But the use of hemoglobin to transport oxygen through the body is actually a rarity among invertebrates, which rely on a variety of other pigments in their versions of blood.

CBIOS Trainee Hillary Koch Awarded NIH Fellowship

Koch's dissertation proposal, "Statistical Methods for Differential Peak Detection in Hi-C Data," was funded upon its first submission to the National Human Genome Research Institute.
