Researchers of the institute of computational biology lead the data analysis efforts of an international research team to discover a number of new risk factors for dilated cardiomyopathy and other heart conditions. In the largest transcriptome study to date, the researchers analysed the RNA of transplanted hearts. The study was recently published in ‘Genome Biology’.
