Investigators identify genes that contribute to radiation resistance (7/29/2014)

A team of researchers from the University of Wisconsin have identified 46 genes in Escherichia coli that are necessary for its survival at exceptionally high levels of radiation. The paper appears ahead of print in the Journal of Bacteriology. ...> Full Article


Age of puberty in girls influenced by which parent their genes are inherited from (7/29/2014)

The age at which girls reach sexual maturity is influenced by 'imprinted' genes, a small sub-set of genes whose activity differs depending on which parent passes on that gene, according to new research published in the journal Nature. ...> Full Article


New technique maps life's effects on our DNA (7/28/2014)

Researchers at the BBSRC-funded Babraham Institute, in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Single Cell Genomics Centre, have developed a powerful new single-cell technique to help investigate how the environment affects our development and the traits we inherit from our parents. ...> Full Article


PIWI proteins and piRNAs regulate genes in the germline and beyond (7/27/2014)

PIWI proteins and piRNAs regulate genes in the germline and beyondPIWI proteins associate with PIWI-interacting RNAs, which are a class of 24-32 nucleotide small non-coding RNAs. Current studies show that PIWI proteins and their interactors regulate piRNA biogenesis and diverse biological processes including transposon silencing, epigenetic programming, DNA rearrangements, mRNA turnover, and translational control, both in the germline and the soma. These discoveries on the PIWI-piRNA pathway have revealed an intriguing new dimension of sncRNA-mediated gene regulation in the cell. ...> Full Article


Splice-switching oligonucleotide therapeutics is new method for editing gene transcript (7/26/2014)

Splice-switching oligonucleotide therapeutics is new method for editing gene transcriptIn splice-switching, an innovative therapeutic approach, targeted oligonucleotide drugs alter the editing of a gene transcript to produce the desired form of a protein. ...> Full Article


First comprehensive library of master genetic switches in plants (7/25/2014)

Researchers have created the first comprehensive library of genetic switches in plants, setting the stage for scientists around the globe to better understand how plants adapt to environmental changes and to design more robust plants for future food security. ...> Full Article


Genetic blueprint of bread wheat genome unveiled (7/25/2014)

Genetic blueprint of bread wheat genome unveiledThe International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium published today in the international journal Science a draft sequence of the bread wheat genome. The chromosome-based draft provides new insight into the structure, organization, and evolution of the large, complex genome of the world's most widely grown cereal crop. ...> Full Article


In development, it's all about the timing (7/24/2014)

In development, it's all about the timingClosely related organisms share most of their genes, but these similarities belie major differences in behavior, intelligence, and physical appearance. Scientists are beginning to appreciate that the timing of the events that happen during development plays a decisive role in defining an organism. Today, a team of scientists at CSHL has identified LIN-42 as a key regulator of developmental timing, governing a broad range of events throughout maturation. ...> Full Article


A region and pathway found crucial for facial development in vertebrate embryos (7/24/2014)

A signaling pathway once thought to have little if any role during embryogenesis is a key player in the formation of the front-most portion of developing vertebrate embryos. Moreover, signals emanating from this region -- referred to as the 'extreme anterior domain' -- orchestrate the complex choreography that gives rise to proper facial structure. ...> Full Article


Danish DNA could be key to happiness (7/23/2014)

Genetics could be the key to explaining nation's levels of happiness, according to research from the University of Warwick. Economists at the University's Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy have looked at why certain countries top the world happiness rankings. In particular they have found the closer a nation is to the genetic makeup of Denmark, the happier that country is. ...> Full Article


Mutation stops worms from getting drunk (7/23/2014)

Mutation stops worms from getting drunkNeuroscientists at The University of Texas at Austin have generated mutant worms that do not get intoxicated by alcohol, a result that could lead to new drugs to treat the symptoms of people going through alcohol withdrawal. The scientists accomplished this feat by inserting a modified human alcohol target into the worms, as reported this week in The Journal of Neuroscience. ...> Full Article


Transplanting gene into injured hearts creates biological pacemakers (7/22/2014)

Cardiologists at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute have developed a minimally invasive gene transplant procedure that changes unspecialized heart cells into 'biological pacemaker' cells that keep the heart steadily beating. ...> Full Article


Improving tumour radiation therapy: When basic ions break DNA down (7/22/2014)

Scientists now have a better understanding of how short DNA strands decompose in microseconds. A European team found new fragmentation pathways that occur universally when DNA strands are exposed to metal ions from a family of alkaline and alkaline earth elements. These ions tend to replace protons in the DNA backbone and at the same time induce a reactive conformation leading more readily to fragmentation. These are findings published in a study in EPJ D. ...> Full Article


A new genome editing method brings the possibility of gene therapies closer to reality (7/21/2014)

Chimpanzee intelligence determined by genes (7/20/2014)

A chimpanzee's intelligence is largely determined by its genes, while environmental factors may be less important than scientists previously thought, according to a Georgia State University research study. ...> Full Article
