Experimental approaches to the human renal transcriptome


Hodgin, J B; Cohen, C D (2010). Experimental approaches to the human renal transcriptome. Seminars in Nephrology, 30(5):455-467.

Abstract

The sum of RNA transcripts of a cell, organ structure, or organism can be referred to as transcriptome. An increasing number of studies report on specific and common alterations in the renal transcriptome in human nephropathies. In this review several challenges in transcriptomic analyses of the human kidney are discussed. This includes ways to approach the heterogeneity of the kidney itself as well as the diversity of renal diseases. Conventional and upcoming techniques for transcriptional profiling of minute tissue samples are presented, including so-called next generation sequencing and microRNA detection. Different tools to integrate transcriptomic data in a systematic context are discussed beside the current challenge to combine such results with data sets from other integrative biology technologies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
