Welcome to the Heng Lab Blog!

Our blog focuses on current developments and discoveries in our lab, providing a "real-time" perspective to our studies in cancer genomics and progression. In addition, we are also using this blog as a forum to raise discussions about current research in the literature within and beyond our laboratory. We welcome you to explore our studies, and we are looking forward to your feedback and contributions.

Dr. Henry H.Q. Heng posts entry for Molecular Cytogenetics blog

Dr. Henry H.Q. Heng's commentary titled "Henrietta Lacks (HeLa) cell genome: cell line identity and the personal privacy" has been posted on the blog of the journal Molecular Cytogenetics.  In his entry, Dr. Heng explains that there should be little concern for privacy or ownership issues regarding the HeLa cancer cell line derived from Henrietta Lacks due to the continual, drastic genomic divergence from Ms. Lacks's original genome.
