Correcting for Inflammation Changes Estimates of Iron Deficiency among Rural Kenyan Preschool Children

submitted by: ebogrant5
The assessment of iron status where infections are common is complicated by the effects of inflammation on iron indicators and in this study we compared approaches that adjust for this influence. Blood was collected in 680 children (aged 6–35 mo) and indicators of iron status [(hemoglobin (Hb), zinc protoporphyrin (ZP), ferritin, transferrin receptor (TfR), and TfR/ferritin index)] and subclinical inflammation [(the acute phase proteins (APP) C-reactive protein (CRP), and a-1-acid...

CHALK TALK: MITOCHONDRIA

submitted by: nsf

This episode of Chalk Talk gives viewers a look inside the "power plant" of most complex cells. Mitochondria provide energy for cells to move, divide, and do all the things they need to do to function properly. Mitochondria are found within almost all living organisms with complex cell structures.

Demo: Old genome coordinates to new

submitted by: gspudich
Genome sequences are updated with time. Your data might be on an older version of the genome, for example the human genome assembly NCBI36 (also known as hg18 by UCSC). In 2009, this assembly was updated to GRCh37 (named hg19 by UCSC). You can use the Ensembl archive site to view the older genome: http://may2009.archive.ensembl.org . To convert your coordinates to the newest genome sequence, use the Ensembl assembly converter (demonstrated in this video.)

Demo: Structural variation for a region

submitted by: gspudich

Large structural variations like CNVs (copy number variation) are explored for a region of the human genome. We use the Ensembl genome browser at www.ensembl.org
