Dr. Rongkun Shen Publishes a Peer-Reviewed Article

Dr. Rongkun Shen publishes a peer-reviewed article titled “Identification of Long Non-coding RNAs Expressed During Early Adipogenesis” in the Online Journal of Biological Sciences.

Dr. Rongkun Shen, assistant professor in Biology, published an article titled “Identification of Long Non-coding RNAs Expressed During Early Adipogenesis”. This study identified multiple lncRNAs that significantly changed their expression levels after cell differentiation using cutting-edge technology, RNA-sequencing. Those lncRNAs may contribute to fate determination of precursors of fatty cells, which is related to obesity. This work is also a close collaboration with Dr. Laurie Cook’s lab in the Department of Biology.
