Post-doc position available – Long noncoding RNA associated with chronic inflammation and cardiometabolic disease

lncRNA

The Moore Laboratory in the Division of Cardiology of the New York University School of Medicine in New York, NY seeks to recruit outstanding applicants for a postdoctoral associate position. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that underpin chronic inflammation and metabolic dysregulation in cardiometabolic diseases. We use a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates basic discovery, preclinical and translational ...

Genome-wide interrogation reveals hundreds of long intergenic noncoding RNAs that associate with cardiometabolic traits

lncRNA

Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) play important roles in disease, but the vast majority of these transcripts remain uncharacterized. A team led by researchers from Duke University defined a set of 54,944 human lincRNAs by drawing on four publicly available lincRNA datasets, and annotated ~2.5 million single-nucleotide polymorphisms from each of 15 cardiometabolic genome-wide association study datasets into these lincRNAs. ...
