By Diksha Tomer and Avishek Majumder on October 9, 2018 No Comments

Emerging infectious diseases (EID) is a type of disease occurring from infections of unknown strains of microorganism. They may also reoccur from infectious diseases that may have occurred many years back. These infectious diseases are either new or have a potential to become epidemic in the near future. Some common examples of the EID include; HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, Influenza, malaria, dengue, cholera, Ebola, and many others to name (Drotman et al., 2018).

According to several reports, micro RNA plays a critical role in myocardial infarction (Fichtlscherer et al., 2010). MicroRNA helps in controlling many biological processes and plays a role in health and heart diseases. Depletion of Dicer (a microRNA processing enzyme) leads to various defects in angiogenesis, vessel formation and cardiac development (Van Rooij and Olson, 2007).


Technologies and resources used in biomarker discovery and development

Biomarker development has served as an indicator of disease progression and response to therapeutic intervention. The conventional approach involved the study of molecules (considered as biomarker) in regulatory pathways but with the advent of technologies and resources, the development and discovery of biomarkers gotten easier.
