Genetics News & Research

Scientist and inventor contributes to the study of cell genetics (12/30/2014)

Scientist and inventor contributes to the study of cell geneticsCytogenetics is a branch of science that studies the structure and function of cells with a focus on the chromosomes found within the cell. Often, plant cell researchers can be limited in their experiments due to the lack of methods available to study these complex structures. Using tools created and patented by James Birchler, a scientist at the University of Missouri, plant researchers are able to break down and engineer small parts of a chromosome and further their research. ...> Full Article


New method identifies genome-wide off-target cleavage sites of CRISPR-Cas nucleases (12/29/2014)

Massachusetts General Hospital investigators have developed a method of detecting, across the entire genome of human cells, unwanted DNA breaks induced by use of the popular gene-editing tools called CRISPR-Cas RNA-guided nucleases. ...> Full Article


New research unlocks a mystery of albinism (12/28/2014)

New research unlocks a mystery of albinismA team led by Brown University biologists has discovered the way in which a specific genetic mutation appears to lead to the lack of melanin production underlying a form of albinism. ...> Full Article


'Radiogenetics' seeks to remotely control cells and genes (12/27/2014)

'Radiogenetics' seeks to remotely control cells and genesA team at Rockefeller University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is developing a system that would make it possible to switch biological targets on and off in living animals -- rapidly, without wires, implants or drugs. ...> Full Article


'Genome editing' could correct genetic mutations for future generations (12/26/2014)

'Genome editing' could correct genetic mutations for future generationsScientists at Indiana University and colleagues at Stanford and the University of Texas have demonstrated a technique for 'editing' the genome in sperm-producing adult stem cells, a result with powerful potential for basic research and for gene therapy. ...> Full Article


Building a worldwide genetic library BRIC-by-BRIC (12/25/2014)

Building a worldwide genetic library BRIC-by-BRICNASA is laying a strong foundation of life science research with results from a recent investigation on the space station called BRIC-19, one in a series of Biological Research in Canisters investigations. ...> Full Article


3-D maps reveal the genome's origami code (12/24/2014)

3-D maps reveal the genome's origami codeIn a triumph for cell biology, researchers have assembled the first high-resolution, 3-D maps of entire folded genomes and found a structural basis for gene regulation -- a kind of 'genomic origami' that allows the same genome to produce different types of cells. The research appears online today in Cell. ...> Full Article


March of the penguin genomes (12/23/2014)

Two penguin genomes have been sequenced and analyzed for the first time in the open access, open data journal GigaScience. Timely for the holiday season, the study reveals insights into how these birds have been able to adapt to the cold and hostile Antarctic environment. ...> Full Article


Scientists map the human loop-ome, revealing a new form of genetic regulation (12/23/2014)

The ancient Japanese art of origami is based on the idea that nearly any design -- a crane, an insect, a samurai warrior -- can be made by taking the same blank sheet of paper and folding it in different ways. The human body faces a similar problem. ...> Full Article


New way to turn genes on (12/22/2014)

Using a gene-editing system originally developed to delete specific genes, MIT researchers have now shown that they can reliably turn on any gene of their choosing in living cells. ...> Full Article


Nutrient availability can cause whole-genome recoding (12/21/2014)

The availability of a trace nutrient can cause genome-wide changes to how organisms encode proteins, report scientists from the University of Chicago in PLoS Biology on Dec. 9. The use of the nutrient -- which is produced by bacteria and absorbed in the gut -- appears to boost the speed and accuracy of protein production. ...> Full Article


Long-term endurance training impacts muscle epigenetics (12/20/2014)

Long-term endurance training impacts muscle epigeneticsA new study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows that long-term endurance training in a stable way alters the epigenetic pattern in the human skeletal muscle. The research team behind the study, which is being published in the journal Epigenetics, also found strong links between these altered epigenetic patterns and the activity in genes controlling improved metabolism and inflammation. ...> Full Article


Genome sequencing for newborns: What do new parents think? (12/19/2014)

A study published this week in Genetics in Medicine is the first to explore new parents' attitudes toward newborn genomic testing. The findings suggest that if newborn genomic testing becomes available, there would be robust interest among new parents, regardless of their demographic background. ...> Full Article


Technology breakthrough reveals cellular transcription process (12/18/2014)

'This new research tool offers us a more profound view of the immune responses that are involved in a range of diseases, such as HIV infection. At the level of gene transcription, this had been difficult, complex and costly to do with current technologies, such as microscopy,' says Daniel Kaufmann of the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre. ...> Full Article


Reliable RNA analysis now easier with NIST 'dashboard' tool (12/18/2014)

Reliable RNA analysis now easier with NIST 'dashboard' toolAn international multi-laboratory team has demonstrated a new NIST software tool, the 'erccdashboard,' that can evaluate the performance of experimental methods used to study gene expression. It provides the first standardized approach for any lab to evaluate the quality of its gene expression analyses. ...> Full Article
