Researcher to Develop Algorithm to Identify Genetic Mutations

Researcher to Develop Algorithm to Identify Genetic Mutations

By Ed Moorhouse A Rutgers University–Camden professor has been awarded a grant that will fund the development of an algorithm that could better identify large-scale genomic changes, such as those related to evolution or disease-causing mutations. The three-year, $604,475 award from the National Science Foundation allows Andrey Grigoriev, a professor of biology at Rutgers–Camden, along […]

New Perspectives on Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

New Perspectives on Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Two Rutgers University–Camden nursing scholars are performing research to better understand access to care and treatment choices made by women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. “In general, women have a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer over their lifetime,” says Patricia Suplee, an assistant professor at the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden. […]

Rutgers–Camden Researchers Analyze Cancer Mutations for International Science Competition

Research being done at Rutgers University–Camden could help improve the way genomic cancer data is analyzed for research and clinical practice. Andrey Grigoriev, a professor of biology at Rutgers–Camden, and two research assistants, including a Rutgers–Camden graduate, are participating in an international competition of algorithms that seeks ways to better identify cancer-causing mutations in genes. […]

Doctoral Research on Fruit Flies Seeks Answers to Cell Signaling Problems

In a research lab on the Rutgers–Camden campus, Matt Niepielko reaches for a vial containing about 50 fruit flies and begins to observe them. The tiny species may seem insignificant — or annoying, if they’re floating around your kitchen — but in this room, each fly plays an important role in our understanding of genetics. […]
