Omixer: multivariate and reproducible sample randomization to proactively counter batch effects in omics studies

Omixer: multivariate and reproducible sample randomization to proactively counter batch effects in omics studies | March 2021 | Bioinformatics Lucy Sinke, Davy Cats, Bastiaan T Heijmans Abstract Motivation: Batch effects heavily impact results in omics studies, causing bias and false positive results, but software to control them preemptively is lacking. Sample randomization prior to measurement is vital [...]

Genetics and epigenetics of repeat derepression in human disease

Peter Thijssen| 01-09-2016 | Genetics and epigenetics of repeat derepression in human disease A large part of the human genome consists of repetitive DNA. In this thesis two human diseases have been studied in which deregulation of repetitive DNA is a central feature: facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) and immunodeficiency, centromere instability and facial anomalies [...]

Persistent epigenetic differences associated with prenatal exposure to famine in humans

Proc Natl Acad Sci USA | November 2009 Abstract Extensive epidemiologic studies have suggested that adult disease risk is associated with adverse environmental conditions early in development. Although the mechanisms behind these relationships are unclear, an involvement of epigenetic dysregulation has been hypothesized. Here we show that individuals who were prenatally exposed to [...]
