If you really needed another reason to come to BioInfoSummer 2014, here it is:
Brand new research findings published last week by opening speaker Professor Chris Overall and his team from the University of British Columbia.
In brief: Using TAILS proteomics, Bellac et al. now demonstrate that acrophage MMP12 executes multiple protective roles in vivo in inflammation resolution. In arthritis, MMP12 counters neutrophil influx, terminates complement activation, accelerates coagulation, and clears NETs of actin and fibrin to dampen and prepare for the resolution of inflammation.
Chris Overall spoke with us about his research, how even though with half as many genes as a cabbage we are as complex as we are and his upcoming visit to Australia for BioInfoSummer 2014. Read interview
