How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

KDM6A is the disease causative gene of type 2 Kabuki Syndrome, a rare multisystem disease; it is also a known cancer driver gene, with multiple somatic mutations found in a few cancer types. In this study, we looked at eleven missense variants in lung squamous cell carcinoma, one of the most common lung cancer subtypes, to see how they affect the K...
The recent identification of non‐coding variants with pathogenic effects suggests that these variations could underlie a significant number of undiagnosed cases. Several computational methods have been developed to predict the functional impact of non‐coding variants, but they exhibit only partial concordance and are not integrated with functional...

COVID-19 is a viral infection, caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and characterized by a complex inflammatory process and clinical immunophenotypes. Nowadays, several alterations of immune response within the respiratory tracts as well as at the level of the peripheral blood have been well documented. Nonethe...
Hundreds of human proteins were found to establish transient interactions with rather degenerated consensus DNA sequences or motifs. Identifying these motifs and the genomic sites where interactions occur represent one of the most challenging research goals in modern molecular biology and bioinformatics. The last twenty years witnessed an explosion...
