Comparisons of computational methods for differential alternative splicing detection using RNA-seq in plant systems

December 16, 2014

Comparisons of computational methods for differential alternative splicing detection using RNA-seq in plantsystems. BMC Bioinformatics. 2014 Dec 16, Liu R, Loraine AE, Dickerson JA. UNC Charlotte Abstract BackgroundAlternative Splicing (AS) as a post-transcription regulation mechanism is an important application of RNA-seq studies in eukaryotes. A number of software and computational methods have been developed for detecting AS. Most of the methods, however, are designed and tested on animal data, […]

Whole Grains: More Productive Rice, Oat Genome Mapping

June 21, 2013

Cytokinin Signaling and More Productive Rice Like Hsieh, Ann Loraine, PhD, with the UNC Charlotte Departments of Genetics and Bioinformatics has conducted extensive research in Arabidopsis. As part of a $3.5 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant with co-investigators Joseph Kieber, PhD, professor and associate chair of biology at UNC Chapel Hill, and Eric Schaller, […]

Whole Grains: Maximizing the Potential

June 13, 2013

UNC Charlotte’s Ann Loraine, PhD, and Research Technician Ivory Clabaugh have achieved something uncommon. They have found a way to grow rice indoors in an NCRC growth room. Their rice research is just one of four programs on campus where scientists are working to improve the nutritional value of grains and maximize their potential to prevent diseases like diabetes […]
