The kick-off meeting of The Asian Glioma Genome Atlas (AGGA) has been successfully held in Beijing. Our team is one of the three founding members. AGGA is a precision neuro-oncology collaboration between China and Korea, aiming to create a comprehensive framework to study RNA sequencing, DNA sequencing, imaging, clinical and drug-screening data from more than 1,500 patients.
Congratulations! In a collaborative project with Dr. Kitai Kim at MSKCC, Quanhua Mu has been listed as a co-author on the paper titled "RNA exosome complex-Mediated control of redox status in Pluripotent Stem Cells".
