Biology for the post-genomic era

Genome Biology publishes research articles, new methods and software tools, in addition to reviews and opinions, from the full spectrum of biology, including molecular, cellular, organism or population biology studied from a genomic perspective, as well as sequence analysis, bioinformatics, proteomics, comparative biology and evolution.

  • Maize gametophytic transcriptomes

    An RNA-seq analysis of maize embryo sacs, mature pollen and seedlings identifies novel transcripts that regulate gametophyte development

    Genome Biology 2014, 15:414
  • Predicting gene expression

    Analyzing FANTOM5 and Encode data reveals that breadth of expression of a gene can be predicted from transcription factor binding

    Genome Biology 2014, 15:413
  • Gene body methylation

    Gene body methylation is as important as promoter methylation in identifying silenced genes, with histone modifications also contributing to regulation

    Genome Biology 2014, 15:408
  • ChIP-seq zinger motifs

    An analysis of the novel common TF binding site motif – zinger motif – reveals the need for careful analysis of ChIP-seq data

    Genome Biology 2014, 15:412
  • Circular RNAs

    An analysis of ENCODE data reveals circular mRNAs and casts doubt on the theory that they might act as miRNA sponges
