Single Gene Mutation Linked to Follicular Lymphoma

July 20, 2009
ICSI bioinformatics researchers made significant contributions to a recently published study in Nature Genetics which links a single gene mutation to follicular lymphoma. The disease, a type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, affects approximately 66,000 Americans per year, resulting in 20,000 deaths. Professor Eran Halperin and Dr. Lucia Conde of ICSI's Algorithms Group performed the statistical analysis of the genetic data used in the study, which was led by Dr. Christine Skibola of UC Berkeley and Dr. Kevin M. Brown of the Translational Genomics Research Institute. More >>
