How do different types of structural variations (SVs) affect biological function at the genetic, transcriptomic, cellular, and organismal levels?


We helped Atilla lab to analyze transcriptomics data to investigate the role of lipid pathways in necroptosis. This paper is recently published in RSC Chemical Biology and they wrote a really nice blog post. Read
