"Gene expression studies rely on high throughput techniques, which do not take in account conceptual limits. I will overcome this situation by exploiting two biological facts. First, RNAs that are important in tissue function are a subset of the global mass, but are always associated with the ribosomal machinery and as such should be identified. Second, gene expression is the outcome of dynamic fl ...

Currently, haemophilia A cannot be cured. To prevent major bleeding episodes in haemophilia, human Factor VIII (FVIII) protein must be frequently administered as prophylaxis or on demand. This treatment is complicated by its high cost and development of antibodies that neutralize FVIII activity in 20 to 30% of the patients. Therefore, permanent solutions in the form of cell and gene therapy are ve ...
