Paper-based synthetic gene networks could enable rapid detection of ebola and other viruses (11/1/2014)

Synthetic gene networks hold great potential for broad biotechnology and medical applications, but so far they have been limited to the lab. A Cell study reveals a new method for using engineered gene circuits beyond the lab, allowing researchers to safely activate the cell-free, paper-based system by simply adding water. The low-cost, easy-to-use platform could enable the rapid detection of different strains of deadly viruses such as Ebola. ...> Full Article


New research software automates DNA analysis (10/31/2014)

A new tool called PrimerGenesis automates the design of primers for site-directed mutagenesis. This is a common, time-consuming task performed in research laboratories around the world. ...> Full Article


Precise and programmable biological circuits (10/31/2014)

A team led by ETH professor Yaakov Benenson has developed several new components for biological circuits. These components are key building blocks for constructing precisely functioning and programmable bio-computers. ...> Full Article


Study examines type of exome sequencing and molecular diagnostic yield (10/30/2014)

In a sample of patients with undiagnosed, suspected genetic conditions, a certain type of exome sequencing method was associated with a higher molecular diagnostic yield than traditional molecular diagnostic methods, according to a study appearing in JAMA. The study is being released to coincide with the American Society of Human Genetics annual meeting. ...> Full Article


Researchers advance genome editing technique (10/29/2014)

Researchers advance genome editing techniqueCustomized genome editing -- the ability to edit desired DNA sequences to add, delete, activate or suppress specific genes -- has major potential for application in medicine, biotechnology, food and agriculture.Now, in a paper published in Molecular Cell, North Carolina State University researchers and colleagues examine six key molecular elements that help drive this genome editing system, which is known as CRISPR-Cas. ...> Full Article


Key moment mapped in assembly of DNA-splitting molecular machine (10/28/2014)

Key moment mapped in assembly of DNA-splitting molecular machineScientists reveal crucial steps and surprising structures in the genesis of the enzyme that divides the DNA double helix during cell replication. ...> Full Article


New Univeristy of Virginia study upends current theories of how mitochondria began (10/27/2014)

Parasitic bacteria were the first cousins of the mitochondria that power cells in animals and plants -- and first acted as energy parasites in cells before becoming beneficial, according to a new University of Virginia study. ...> Full Article


House fly genome reveals expanded immune system (10/26/2014)

Scientists have sequenced the house fly genome for the first time, revealing robust immune genes, as one might expect from an insect that thrives in pathogen-rich dung piles and garbage heaps. The research, published Oct. 14 in the journal Genome Biology, will increase understanding of house fly genetics and biology and of how flies quickly adapt to resist insecticides, which could lead to novel control methods. ...> Full Article


Special chromosomal structures control key genes (10/25/2014)

Scientists have long theorized that the way in which the roughly three meters of DNA in a human cell is packaged to fit within a nuclear space just six microns wide, affects gene expression. Now, Whitehead Institute researchers present the first evidence that DNA structure does indeed have such effects -- in this case finding a link between chromosome structure and the expression and repression of key genes. ...> Full Article


MU researchers identify epigenetic changes caused by binge drinking (10/24/2014)

MU researchers identify epigenetic changes caused by binge drinkingResearchers at the University of Missouri School of Medicine have identified epigenetic protein changes caused by binge drinking, a discovery that could lead to treatments for alcohol-related liver diseases. ...> Full Article


Conspicuous tRNA lookalikes riddle the human genome (10/23/2014)

A new discovery suggests that the number of human genomic loci that might be coding for tRNAs is nearly double what is currently known. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop reproducibility score for SNPs associated with human disease in GWAS (10/23/2014)

Dartmouth researchers have identified nine traits that are not dependent on P values to predict single nucleotide polymorphisms reproducibility in genome-wide association studies and reduce false positives. ...> Full Article
