Thousands of never-before-seen human genome variations uncovered (11/23/2014)

Thousands of never-before-seen human genome variations uncoveredThousands of never-before-seen genetic variants in the human genome have been uncovered using a new genome sequencing technology. These discoveries close many human genome mapping gaps that have long resisted sequencing. The technique, called single-molecule, real-time DNA sequencing, may now make it possible for researchers to identify potential genetic mutations behind many conditions whose genetic causes have long eluded scientists. ...> Full Article


Scientists solve mystery of 'Frankenstein' DNA (11/23/2014)

Australian researchers have uncovered how the massive DNA molecules that appear in some tumours are formed like Frankenstein's monster, stitched together from other parts of the genome. This solves a decades-old mystery and explains how these tumours ensure their own survival. ...> Full Article


Blocking mitochondrial fission: An effective treatment for Parkinson's disease? (11/22/2014)

A study led by a researcher from Plymouth University in the UK, has discovered that the inhibition of a particular mitochondrial fission protein could hold the key to potential treatment for Parkinson's disease. ...> Full Article


Golden approach to high-speed DNA reading (11/22/2014)

Golden approach to high-speed DNA readingBerkeley researchers have created the world's first graphene nanopores that feature integrated optical antennas. The antennas open the door to high-speed optical nanopore sequencing of DNA. ...> Full Article


Having a Y chromosome doesn't affect women's response to sexual images, brain study shows (11/21/2014)

Women born with a rare condition that gives them a Y chromosome don't only look like women physically, they also have the same brain responses to visual sexual stimuli, a new study shows. ...> Full Article


Secure genetic data moves into the fast lane of discovery (11/21/2014)

Secure genetic data moves into the fast lane of discoveryA new web-based platform called GWATCH provides visualization tools for identifying disease-associated genetic markers from privacy-protected human data without risk to patient privacy. This dynamic online tool facilitates disease gene discovery via automation presented with intuitive data visualization tools: results are shown in three dimensions via a scrolling (Guitar Hero-like) chromosome highway. GWATCH provides an extremely useful, visually appealing bird's-eye view of positive disease-association results, while all sensitive information remain secure behind firewalls. ...> Full Article


New tool could help reshape the limits of synthetic biology (11/20/2014)

NYU Langone yeast geneticists report they have developed a novel tool -- dubbed 'the telomerator' -- that could redefine the limits of synthetic biology and advance how successfully living things can be engineered or constructed in the laboratory based on an organism's genetic, chemical base-pair structure. ...> Full Article


Breaking down DNA by genome (11/19/2014)

A new study in the November issue of Applications in Plant Sciences provides plant biologists with an efficient approach for separating plant nuclear DNA from organellar DNA for genomic and metagenomic studies. The approach targets the methyl-CpG-binding domain and allows researchers to isolate nuclear, chloroplast, and mitochondrial DNA, and can also target genomes of endophytes and prokaryotic parasites in plant DNA samples. ...> Full Article


Genetic factors behind surviving or dying from Ebola shown in mouse study (11/19/2014)

Genetic factors behind surviving or dying from Ebola shown in mouse studyA newly developed mouse model suggests that genetic factors are behind the mild-to-deadly range of responses to the Ebola virus. The frequency of different manifestations of the disease across the lines of these mice are similar in variety and proportion to the spectrum of clinical disease observed in the 2014 West African outbreak. The new mouse model might be useful in testing candidate therapeutics and vaccines for Ebola, and in finding genetic markers for susceptibility and resistance to the disease. ...> Full Article


Efficient genetic editing (11/18/2014)

Led by Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology David Liu, a team of Harvard researchers have developed a system that uses commercially-available molecules called cationic lipids -- long, greasy molecules that carry a positive charge -- to efficiently deliver genome-editing proteins into cells, and have even demonstrated that the technology can be used to perform genome editing in living animals. ...> Full Article


What is a species? It could be difficult to reply if you work with aphids (11/18/2014)

What is a species? It could be difficult to reply if you work with aphidsKaryotype analysis of strains of the green peach aphid Myzus persicae evidenced several populations possessing rearranged chromosomes, also within single individuals. Interestingly, a fusion between autosomes one and three has been observed to occur at the same end of autosomes one. Even if chromosomal rearrangements are generally randomly occurring, aphids suggest that chromosomal architecture can make some rearrangements less random than others. The study was published in the open access journal Comparative Cytogenetics. ...> Full Article


Scientists capture picture of 'MicroRNA' in action (11/17/2014)

Scientists capture picture of 'MicroRNA' in actionBiologists at The Scripps Research Institute have described the atomic-level workings of 'microRNA' molecules, which control the expression of genes in all animals and plants. The findings add greatly to the understanding of a fundamental system of regulation in biology, and should accelerate the development of therapies that harness its power. ...> Full Article


What's mighty about the mouse? For starters, its massive Y chromosome (11/16/2014)

An exhaustive effort to sequence the mouse Y chromosome reveals a surprisingly large and complex biological beast, at the same time providing remarkable insight into a heated battle for supremacy between mammalian sex chromosomes. ...> Full Article

Research resolves contradiction over protein's role at telomeres (11/14/2014)

A puzzling discrepancy has surrounded one component of the protective complex that forms at telomeres, at the end of chromosomes. Studies of its role in mice versus humans had turned up contradictory results. Now researchers at Rockefeller University have figured out what's really going on. ...> Full Article
