Genetics News & Research

Special chromosomal structures control key genes (10/25/2014)

Scientists have long theorized that the way in which the roughly three meters of DNA in a human cell is packaged to fit within a nuclear space just six microns wide, affects gene expression. Now, Whitehead Institute researchers present the first evidence that DNA structure does indeed have such effects -- in this case finding a link between chromosome structure and the expression and repression of key genes. ...> Full Article


MU researchers identify epigenetic changes caused by binge drinking (10/24/2014)

MU researchers identify epigenetic changes caused by binge drinkingResearchers at the University of Missouri School of Medicine have identified epigenetic protein changes caused by binge drinking, a discovery that could lead to treatments for alcohol-related liver diseases. ...> Full Article


Conspicuous tRNA lookalikes riddle the human genome (10/23/2014)

A new discovery suggests that the number of human genomic loci that might be coding for tRNAs is nearly double what is currently known. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop reproducibility score for SNPs associated with human disease in GWAS (10/23/2014)

Dartmouth researchers have identified nine traits that are not dependent on P values to predict single nucleotide polymorphisms reproducibility in genome-wide association studies and reduce false positives. ...> Full Article


High-sugar diet no problem for genetic mutants (10/22/2014)

Scientists find a genetic pathway for circumventing the weight gain that accompanies a high-sugar diet. ...> Full Article


A tall story: Great strides in identifying genetic factors in height (10/22/2014)

An international collaboration of scientists has identified a fifth of the genetic factors that cause height to vary between individuals. ...> Full Article


A novel roadmap through bacterial genomes leads the way to new drug discovery (10/21/2014)

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Northwestern University have innovated and demonstrated the value of an algorithm to analyze microbial genomic data and speed discovery of new therapeutic drugs. ...> Full Article


Liquid DNA behind virus attacks (10/21/2014)

Viruses can convert their DNA from solid to fluid form, which explains how viruses manage to eject DNA into the cells of their victims. This has been shown in two new studies carried out by Lund University in Sweden. ...> Full Article


Ebola genome browser now online to aid researchers' response to crisis (10/20/2014)

The UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute late Tuesday released a new Ebola genome browser to assist global efforts to develop a vaccine and antiserum to help stop the spread of the Ebola virus. ...> Full Article


Twice the DNA yield in less time (10/19/2014)

A new DNA isolation technique based on MagnaCel paramagnetic cellulose particles (PMC), originally designed and developed for forensic applications, was evaluated by researchers to determine its efficacy in extracting DNA from a wide range of plant species. Compared to other popular DNA extraction methods for plants, PMC was found to be more efficient and produced double the DNA yield. The study is available in the October 2014 issue of Applications in Plant Sciences. ...> Full Article


Cattle code cracked in detail (10/18/2014)

By creating a global database an international consortium of scientists has increased the detailed knowledge of the variation in the cattle genome by several orders of magnitude. The first generation of the new data resource, which will be open access, forms an essential tool for scientists working with cattle genetics and livestock history. ...> Full Article


RCas9: A programmable RNA editing tool (10/18/2014)

RCas9: A programmable RNA editing toolA powerful scientific tool for editing the DNA instructions in a genome can now also be applied to RNA as Berkeley Lab researchers have demonstrated a means by which the CRISPR/Cas9 protein complex can be programmed to recognize and cleave RNA at sequence-specific target sites. ...> Full Article


Proving 'group selection' (10/17/2014)

The notion of 'group selection' -- that members of social species exhibit individual behavioral traits that render a population more or less fit for survival?has been bandied about in evolutionary biology since Darwin. The essence of the argument against the theory is that it's a 'fuzzy' concept without the precision of gene-based selection. ...> Full Article


A new target for controlling inflammation? Long non-coding RNAs fine-tune the immune system (10/17/2014)

A new target for controlling inflammation? Long non-coding RNAs fine-tune the immune systemRegulation of the human immune system's response to infection involves an elaborate network of complex signaling pathways that turn on and off multiple genes. The emerging importance of long noncoding RNAs and their ability to promote, fine-tune, and restrain the body's inflammatory response by regulating gene expression is described in a Review article in Journal of Interferon & Cytokine Research. ...> Full Article


Geneticists solve 40-year-old dilemma to explain why duplicate genes remain in the genome (10/16/2014)

Geneticists solve 40-year-old dilemma to explain why duplicate genes remain in the genomeGeneticists from Trinity College Dublin have discovered -- after 40 years of wondering why -- that duplicate genes confer 'mutational robustness' in individuals, which allows them to adapt to novel, potentially dangerous environments. ...> Full Article
