  • Phylogenetic Trees and Targeted Cancer Research: Bioinformatics Summer School

    Cancer is one of the most common diseases of our time, and trailblazing bioinformatics research is looking for answers. This rapidly developing scientific field has already come up with effective methods that not only allow to quickly track down genome changes conducive to cancer development, but also pinpoint the factors that catalyze or inhibit this process. These questions were at the center of this year’s Bioinformatics summer school held at the end of July in the green purlieus of St. Petersburg. Participants of this largest national Bioinformatics event conducted high-profile research breaking down medical data of breast cancer patients, analyzing the differential expression of long non-coding RNA in kidney renal cell carcinoma, and building phylogenetic trees that contribute to better understanding of the disease. ITMO.NEWS met the young scientists to talk about their summer school projects and the latest of cancer-focused bioinformatics research.
