The advent of high throughput sequencing and DNA microarray technologies along with the advances in bioinformatics have revolutionized biological research in the recent years. However, the precise mechanisms that control gene expression are largely unknown despite the numerous efforts to understand them. We describe a bioinformatics technique that can(More)
Hyporesponsive genetic variants of the melanocortin 1 receptor result in pigmentary phenotypes exhibiting light skin and light color hair, including red hair. These variants are common in populations with high rates of multiple sclerosis, while rare in populations with low rates. Alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone, the major ligand for this receptor, is(More)
