Detecting autologous blood doping through the analysis of erythrocyte transcriptome
Project Title: Detecting autologous blood doping through the analysis of erythrocyte transcriptome
Researchers: Pr. J. Chi, Dr. D. Corcoran
Institution: Duke University, USA
Year accepted: 2013
Summary: We have discovered and characterized the large amount of genetic information in the red blood cells (RBC) that are usually used for the blood doping. We plan to apply genomic technology and advanced bioinformatics to global analyze the changes of the genetic materials of RBC during in vitro storage to identify "gene signatures" of blood storages. These gene signatures will be validated and used to identify individuals who may have received their own stored blood to enhance their athletic performance.
