Project description

Because of their function as regulators of gene expression, miRNAs and lncRNAs are likely to act as a grid that connects different genes within and between relevant cancer pathways. Insights in the connectivity between protein-coding genes, miRNAs and lncRNAs could provide novel insights in the complexity of the cancer phenotype and present new ways to normalize the circuitry.
