On October 17 and 18, the annual meeting of the GenRisk strategic action was held in Pamplona, ​​in which researchers from 14 groups of the CIBERESP institution participated. Initially, the first year follow-up of the GenRisk-Cancer project, funded by the Scientific Foundation of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), has been presented. The GenRisk-Cancer project, […]

Communication is a corner stone of population-based breast cancer screening programs that need to invite all the women from their target population and provide them with balanced information on screening to guaranty informed participation. Invited women also need to be able to contact screening programs to get further information on screening procedures and/or cancel and […]

eQTL analysis is an approach to study functional SNPs identified in GWAS. The web tool that we provide at https://www.colonomics.org/eQTL-browser allows easy analysis of expression and eQTL specific for colon tissue and will help researchers in the area to identify which SNPs deserve further functional research. The tool calculates Pearson or Spearman correlation, and allows to select […]

Commensal and pathogenic bacteria and viruses, the human microbiota, have coexisted with humans since the dawn of our species with ongoing variable clinical manifestations, including cancer. By exploring deep-sequenced pathogen genomes from clinical and ancient samples has a potential to yield much more accurate estimates of the within-host and between-host pathogen evolutionary rates and uniquely […]

During the progression of colon cancer various genetic aberrations accumulate in the DNA. One of the most common genetic alterations are anomalies in the length of the telomeres. Telomeres are repetitive DNA sequences (TTAGGG nucleotides) located at the end of chromosomes that protect the end of the chromosome from deterioration or fusion with neighboring chromosomes. […]
