Shandra Trantham came to @UF to work alongside the researchers racing to cure her rare genetic disease. But when a family reached out in need of a miracle, she shifted her focus to developing gene therapies for their son's incurable disease. #CureFA explore.research.ufl.edu/no-time-to-be-… Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Happy #DNADay2022 from the UFGI! #DNADay commemorates the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA in 1953 and the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003.

Scientists in the Telomere-to-Telomere (#T2T) consortium have published the first complete, gapless human genome sequence. This can lead to a better understanding of our genomic variations and provide insight for missing heritability and human disease. genome.gov/T2T Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Last week, some talented @genome_gov researchers published a commentary in @HGGAdvances describing an inclusive future of genomics that embraces integrated anti-racism approaches. I recommend reading their described ethos for a better future of science: bit.ly/3ChPPgH Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Studies have shown that enhancing the diversity of the research workforce fosters innovation and creativity, which happens when people recognize that diverse perspectives and life experiences provide different contexts and approaches for tackling challenging problems. 1/ twitter.com/NHGRI_Director… Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Today is #WorldFragileXDay. There have been many recent developments in genetic testing for developmental conditions such as #FragileX. I'm still recruiting for my study and interested in hearing from parents about these new tests. twitter.com/erin_turbitt/s… Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Parents of children with genetic developmental conditions: we’re interested to know what you think about new genetic tests that are in development. Follow the link to register your interest and find out more. #RareDisease #FragileX redcap.research.uts.edu.au/surveys/?s=EC4… Retweeted by Brittany M Hollister, PhD

Congratulations to Dan Stribling, #UFGI PhD student, for his recent first author publication: "A noncanonical microRNA derived from the snaR-A noncoding RNA targets a metastasis inhibitor."
