Genetics News & Research

Finding the switch: Researchers create roadmap for gene expression (4/17/2014)

In a new study, researchers from North Carolina State University, UNC-Chapel Hill and other institutions have taken the first steps toward creating a roadmap that may help scientists narrow down the genetic cause of numerous diseases. Their work also sheds new light on how heredity and environment can affect gene expression. ...> Full Article


Deep, integrated genomic analysis re-classifies lower-grade brain tumors (4/16/2014)

Deep, integrated genomic analysis re-classifies lower-grade brain tumorsComprehensive genomic analysis of low-grade brain tumors sorts them into three categories, one of which has the molecular hallmarks and shortened survival of glioblastoma multiforme ...> Full Article


Synthetic gene circuits pump up cell signals (4/16/2014)

Synthetic genetic circuitry created by researchers at Rice University is helping them monitor cell mechanisms that degrade the misfolded proteins implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. ...> Full Article


Energizing sick mitochondria with vitamin B3 (4/15/2014)

The researchers of the University of Helsinki, Finland, and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, have shown that vitamin B3 form nicotinamide riboside can slow down the progression of mitochondrial disease, suggesting its potential as a novel therapy approach to adult-onset mitochondrial muscle diseases. ...> Full Article


Seeing double: New study explains evolution of duplicate genes (4/14/2014)

Seeing double: New study explains evolution of duplicate genesFrom time to time, living cells will accidentally make an extra copy of a gene during the normal replication process. Throughout the history of life, evolution has molded some of these seemingly superfluous genes into a source of genetic novelty, adaptation and diversity. A new study shows one way that some duplicate genes could have long-ago escaped elimination from the genome, leading to the genetic innovation seen in modern life. ...> Full Article


Exploring the genetics of 'I'll do it tomorrow' (4/14/2014)

Procrastination and impulsivity are genetically linked, suggesting that the two traits stem from similar evolutionary origins, according to research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The research indicates that the traits are related to our ability to successfully pursue and juggle goals. ...> Full Article


Friedreich's ataxia -- an effective gene therapy in an animal model (4/13/2014)

Friedreich's ataxia -- an effective gene therapy in an animal modelThe team led by Hélène Puccio, director of research for Inserm at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology in close collaboration with Patrick Aubourg's team has demonstrated, in the mice, the efficacy of gene therapy for treating the heart disease associated with Friedreich's ataxia, a rare hereditary neuro-degenerative disorder. ...> Full Article


Some long non-coding RNAs are conventional after all (4/12/2014)

Researchers have come full circle and predicted that some long non-coding RNAs can give rise to small proteins that have biological functions. A recent study in The EMBO Journal describes how researchers have used ribosome profiling to identify several hundred long non-coding RNAs that may give rise to small peptides. ...> Full Article


Loneliness impacts DNA repair (4/11/2014)

Loneliness impacts DNA repairScientists at the Vetmeduni Vienna examined the telomere length of captive African grey parrots. They found that the telomere lengths of single parrots were shorter than those housed with a companion parrot, which supports the hypothesis that social stress can interfere with cellular aging and a particular type of DNA repair. It suggests that telomeres may provide a biomarker for assessing exposure to social stress. The findings have been published in the journal PLOS ONE. ...> Full Article


Math modeling integral to synthetic biology research (4/11/2014)

A long-standing challenge in synthetic biology has been to create gene circuits that behave in predictable and robust ways. Mathematical modeling experts from the University of Houston collaborated with experimental biologists at Rice University to create a synthetic genetic clock that keeps accurate time across a range of temperatures. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the findings were published in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...> Full Article


Scientists generate 3D structure for the malaria parasite genome (4/11/2014)

Scientists generate 3D structure for the malaria parasite genomeA research team led by a University of California Riverside scientist has generated a 3-D model of the human malaria parasite genome at three different stages in the parasite's life cycle -- the first time such 3-D architecture has been generated during the progression of the life cycle of a parasite. The team found that genes that need to be highly expressed in the parasite tend to cluster in the same area of the cell nucleus. ...> Full Article


Synthetic biology lab backed by £2 million award (4/10/2014)

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have been awarded £2M to build a state-of-the-art DNA synthesis facility, a capability offering much needed tools for genome engineering to the academic and private sectors. ...> Full Article


First peanut genome sequenced (4/9/2014)

First peanut genome sequencedThe International Peanut Genome Initiative -- a group of multinational crop geneticists who have been working in tandem for the last several years -- has successfully sequenced the peanut's genome.The new peanut genome sequence will be available to researchers and plant breeders across the globe to aid in the breeding of more productive and more resilient peanut varieties. ...> Full Article


UM Institute for Genome Sciences receives FDA contract to expand genome sequence database (4/8/2014)

Researchers at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have been awarded a research program contract from the US Food and Drug Administration to sequence, assemble, and annotate a population of bacterial pathogens using two high-throughput sequencing technologies in support of the expansion of a vetted public reference database. ...> Full Article


Gene therapy improves limb function following spinal cord injury (4/7/2014)

Delivering a single injection of a scar-busting gene therapy to the spinal cord of rats following injury promotes the survival of nerve cells and improves hind limb function within weeks, according to a study published April 2 in The Journal of Neuroscience. The findings suggest that, with more confirming research in animals and humans, gene therapy may hold the potential to one day treat people with spinal cord injuries. ...> Full Article
