Next generation sequencing shakes up genotype/phenotype correlation, disease discoveries (8/22/2014)

With the ability to use next generation sequencing technology, researchers have a broadened understanding of the association of genetic changes and disease causation to a much greater resolution, driving new discoveries, said clinical geneticists from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and the University of Montreal in Canada in a perspective published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. ...> Full Article


Utility of sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP) markers (8/22/2014)

Sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers have proved to be useful for agronomic studies (including crop development and identification of pathogen-resistant markers), but their use in other fields of plant biology has been limited. A new study in Applications in Plant Sciences surveys the SRAP literature and makes a case for the potential use of SRAP markers across a broad range of research fields including plant systematics, biogeography, conservation, and ecology. ...> Full Article


Single gene controls jet lag (8/21/2014)

Single gene controls jet lagSalk researchers have discovered a master gene responsible for sleep and wake cycles, offering hope for a drug that could help reset sleep. ...> Full Article


New material could enhance fast and accurate DNA sequencing (8/20/2014)

New material could enhance fast and accurate DNA sequencingGene-based personalized medicine has many possibilities for diagnosis and targeted therapy, but one big bottleneck: the expensive and time-consuming DNA-sequencing process. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have found that nanopores in the material molybdenum disulfide could sequence DNA more accurately, quickly and inexpensively than anything yet available. ...> Full Article


No excess baggage: Antarctic insect's genome, newly sequenced, is smallest to date (8/19/2014)

Scientists who sequenced the genome of the Antarctic midge suspect the genome's small size -- the smallest in insects described to date -- can probably be explained by the midge's adaptation to its extreme living environment. ...> Full Article


First gene therapy trial launched for heart patients with mechanical pumps (8/18/2014)

For the first time in the world, a patient with a mechanical heart pump has received a new gene therapy for heart failure at Harefield Hospital, London. ...> Full Article

Researcher receives grant to develop genetic tools to study parasitic infections (8/15/2014)

John Hawdon, Ph.D., associate professor of microbiology, immunology, and tropical medicine at the George Washington University, was recently awarded $430,722 from the National Institutes of Health to develop a model system to study parasitic nematode infection, which will lead to greater understanding of the infective process and the host's immune response to infection. ...> Full Article


Wiggly microRNA binding implies a more complex genome regulation (8/14/2014)

Non-standard microRNA silencing interactions appear more prevalent in human biology than previously believed, suggesting more complex roles for microRNAs, and helping explain why it's been difficult to translate microRNAs into human therapy. ...> Full Article


From the basics to the cutting edge of molecular biology and genomics in one small book (8/13/2014)

From the basics to the cutting edge of molecular biology and genomics in one small bookNew from CSHLPress, 'Quickstart Molecular Biology' provides an introductory course in molecular biology that is designed specifically for mathematicians, physicists, and computational scientists. The book enables readers to move rapidly from the basics of molecular biology to an understanding of cutting-edge techniques used in cell and developmental biology, genomics, and synthetic biology. ...> Full Article


Team determines structure of a molecular machine that targets viral DNA for destruction (8/13/2014)

A Montana State University-led team has published a research article in Science that describes the molecular blueprint of a surveillance 'machine' that protects bacteria from viral infections. ...> Full Article


Butterflies could hold key to probes that repair genes (8/12/2014)

New discoveries about how butterflies feed could help engineers develop tiny probes that siphon liquid out of single cells for a wide range of medical tests and treatments, according to Clemson University researchers. ...> Full Article


Seamless gene correction of beta-thalassemia mutations in patient-specific cells (8/12/2014)

Seamless gene correction of beta-thalassemia mutations in patient-specific cellsA major hurdle in gene therapy is the efficient integration of a corrected gene into a patient's genome without mutating off-target sites. In a paper published today in Genome Research, scientists have used CRISPR/Cas genome editing technology to seamlessly and efficiently correct disease-causing mutations in cells from patients with beta-thalassemia. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop tool to better visualize, analyze human genomic data (8/11/2014)

Researchers develop tool to better visualize, analyze human genomic dataScientists at the University of Maryland have developed a new, web-based tool that enables researchers to quickly and easily visualize and compare large amounts of genomic information resulting from high-throughput sequencing experiments. The free tool, called Epiviz, offers a major advantage over browsers currently available: Epiviz seamlessly integrates with the open-source Bioconductor analysis software widely used by genomic scientists, through its Epivizr Bioconductor package. ...> Full Article
