When it Comes to the Rat Genome, Bigger is Better

submitted by: dabraham
The rat genome comes to life through the use of the Gviewer tool. This video will show you how to use this helpful tool within the RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ . Genes, QTLs, and species syntenies of interest can all be visualized with ease as the Gviewer zooms in and navigates through the rat genome with a few clicks. See our website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ for more tools for rat researchers.

A new shape for an old function: lasting effect of a physiologic surgical restoration of the left ventricle

submitted by: makyr
Background Long-term morphofunctional outcome may vary widely in surgical anterior left ventricular wall restoration, suggesting variability in post-surgical remodeling similar to that observed following acute myocardial infarction. The aim of this pilot study was to demonstrate that surgical restoration obtained with a particular shape of endoventricular patch leads to steady morphofunctional ventricular improvement when geometry, volume and residual akinesia can be restored as...
