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


New path of genetic research: Scientists uncover 4-stranded elements of maize DNA (12/17/2014)

New path of genetic research: Scientists uncover 4-stranded elements of maize DNAA team led by Florida State University researchers has identified DNA elements in maize that could affect the expression of hundreds or thousands of genes. ...> Full Article


Computer model enables design of complex DNA shapes (12/16/2014)

MIT biological engineers have created a new computer model that allows them to design the most complex three-dimensional DNA shapes ever produced, including rings, bowls, and geometric structures such as icosahedrons that resemble viral particles. ...> Full Article


People conceived during the Dutch famine have altered regulation of growth genes (12/16/2014)

Individuals conceived in the severe Dutch Famine may have adjusted to this horrendous period of World War II by making adaptations to how active their DNA is. Genes involved in growth and development were differentially regulated, according to researchers. Extensive research on the DNA of these children shows that the regulatory systems of their growth genes were altered, which may also explain why they may be at higher risk for metabolic disease in later life. ...> Full Article


A novel technique for gene insertion by genome editing (12/15/2014)

A novel technique for gene insertion by genome editingUsing a novel gene knock-in technique, effective insertion of an exogenous gene was demonstrated in human cells and in animal models, including silkworms and frogs. This strategy universally enables gene knock-in not only in cultured cells, but also in various organisms. This technique will enhance the usefulness of genome editing techniques in a variety of cells and organisms, especially in those in which gene knock-in is hindered by low homologous recombination efficiency. ...> Full Article


Study: Different species share a 'genetic toolkit' for behavioral traits (12/14/2014)

Study: Different species share a 'genetic toolkit' for behavioral traitsThe house mouse, stickleback fish and honey bee appear to have little in common, but at the genetic level these animals respond in strikingly similar ways to danger, researchers report. When any of these creatures confronts an intruder, many of the same genes and brain gene networks gear up or down in response. This discovery, reported in the Proceedings of teh National Academy of Sciences, suggests that distantly related organisms share some key genetic mechanisms that help them respond to threats. ...> Full Article


Revolutionizing genome engineering (12/13/2014)

Revolutionizing genome engineeringGenome engineering with the RNA-guided CRISPR-Cas9 system in animals and plants is changing biology. It is easier to use and more efficient than other genetic engineering tools, thus it is already being applied in laboratories all over the world just a few years after its discovery. This rapid adoption and the history of the system are the core topics of a review published in the renowned journal Science. ...> Full Article


Bitter food but good medicine from cucumber genetics (12/12/2014)

High-tech genomics and traditional Chinese medicine come together as researchers identify the genes responsible for the intense bitter taste of wild cucumbers. Taming this bitterness made cucumber, pumpkin and their relatives into popular foods, but the same compounds also have potential to treat cancer and diabetes. ...> Full Article


Genom Austria launches as a new member of the Personal Genome Project (12/11/2014)

Genom Austria launches as a new member of the Personal Genome ProjectBreakthrough sequencing technology makes it possible to analyze human genomes at relatively low cost. 'Genom Austria' is a joint project of PersonalGenomes.org, the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Medical University of Vienna. It explores the scientific, educational, ethical, and social implications of genome sequencing. Following the model of Harvard's Personal Genome Project, 'Genom Austria' provides qualifying volunteers the opportunity to sequence and publicly share their genomes. ...> Full Article


DNA may survive suborbital spaceflight, re-entry (12/10/2014)

DNA may survive suborbital spaceflight, re-entryPlasmid DNA attached to the outer surface of a sounding rocket may be able to withstand rocket launch, a period of residence in suborbital space, re-entry, and landing conditions into the Earth's atmosphere, all the while staying intact and active in its function as carrier of genetic information. ...> Full Article


A hybrid vehicle that delivers DNA (12/9/2014)

A hybrid vehicle that delivers DNAA new hybrid vehicle is under development.Its performance isn't measured by the distance it travels, but rather the delivery of its cargo: vaccines that contain genetically engineered DNA to fight HIV, cancer, influenza and other maladies.Described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the technology could help unleash the potential of DNA vaccines, which despite two decades of research, have yet to make a significant impact in the treatment of major illnesses. ...> Full Article


A link between DNA transcription and disease-causing expansions (12/8/2014)

Scientists have believed that the lengthening of those repeats occur during DNA replication when cells divide or when the cellular DNA repair machinery gets activated. Recently, however, Tufts scientists have discovered another process called transcription, which is copying the information from DNA into RNA, could also been involved. ...> Full Article


International collaboration completes genome sequence of centipede (12/8/2014)

An international collaboration of scientists including Baylor College of Medicine has completed the first genome sequence of a myriapod, Strigamia maritima -- a member of a group venomous centipedes that care for their eggs -- and uncovered new clues about their biological evolution and unique absence of vision and circadian rhythm. ...> Full Article


Researchers shed new light on the genetics of memory performance (12/7/2014)

In the largest study of the genetics of memory ever undertaken, an international researcher team including scientists from Boston University School of Medicine, have discovered two common genetic variants that are believed to be associated with memory performance. The findings, which appear in the journal Biological Psychiatry, are a significant step towards better understanding how memory loss is inherited. ...> Full Article
