Mentoring
ncRNAs in Aging[login at prompt]
Available: 09/25/18, Expires: 08/31/20

The student will identify ncRNAs mis-expressed in aging animals and perform knock out experiments to identify those ncRNA with functions in aging. The model organism used here will be the nematode C. elegans, which lives about 2 weeks.

Non-coding RNAs in cancer[login at prompt]
Available: 09/24/18, Expires: 08/31/20

The student will examine cancer tissues and identify mis-expressed ncRNAs. The student will perform function assays to determine whether the ncRNAs play a role in cancer cell survival, growth or motility. The student will identify potential pathways associated with the ncRNA and begin studies to investigate mechanism of action.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
