Genetics News & Research

Fritillary genome sequenced (9/23/2014)

Fritillary genome sequencedThe Glanville fritillary is now the third species of butterfly in the world for which the full genome sequence and a high-resolution genetic map are available. ...> Full Article


Thousands of nuclear loci via target enrichment and genome skimming (9/23/2014)

A new approach in next-generation sequencing, called Hyb-Seq, uses targeted sequence capture via hybridization-based enrichment and makes it possible to sequence hundreds of genes at one time. The new protocol is poised to become the standard for efficiently producing genome-scale data sets to advance our understanding of the evolutionary history of plants, and is available in the Sept. 2014 issue of Applications in Plant Sciences. ...> Full Article


Artificial cells take their first steps (9/22/2014)

Using only a few ingredients, the biophysicist Professor Andreas Bausch and his team at the Technische Universität München have successfully implemented a minimalistic model of the cell that can change its shape and move on its own. They describe how they turned this goal into reality in the current edition of the academic journal Science, where their research is featured as cover story. ...> Full Article


Most accurate measures of gene expression (9/21/2014)

RNA-sequencing data analysis method BitSeq developed by Academy Research Fellow Antti Honkela's, Univeristy of Helsinki, research group and University of Manchester researchers has been found to be the most accurate gene transcript expression estimation method in a large international assessment. The method is based on probabilistic modelling which can capture the uncertainty related to the measurements. ...> Full Article


Study shows cellular RNA can template DNA repair in yeast (9/20/2014)

Study shows cellular RNA can template DNA repair in yeastScientists have shown that RNA produced within cells of a common budding yeast can serve as a template for repairing the most devastating DNA damage -- a break in both strands of a DNA helix. ...> Full Article


Experts discover the genomic origin of telomere protectors (9/19/2014)

A study led by Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncologicas researchers has discovered that telomeric repeat-containing RNA do not originate in all telomeres that protect the 20 murine chromosomes, but do exclusively in chromosome 18 and, to a lesser extent, in chromosome 9. This peculiarity sets the stage for future genetic manipulation in mice with the aim of researching the in vivo role of these molecules in telomere biology and in illness. The results have been published in Nature Communications. ...> Full Article


Scientists make diseased cells synthesize their own drug (9/18/2014)

Scientists make diseased cells synthesize their own drugIn a new study that could ultimately lead to many new medicines, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have adapted a chemical approach to turn diseased cells into unique manufacturing sites for molecules that can treat a form of muscular dystrophy. ...> Full Article


How genes link a mother's diet to the risk of obesity in her offspring (9/17/2014)

According to new research published in the September 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists using an animal model found an epigenetic link between a mother's diet and an offspring's risk of future obesity. This link hinges on the blocked expression of a gene called Pomc, which manages a discrete area of the brain that controls feeding behavior. ...> Full Article


Lab unveil new nano-sized synthetic scaffolding technique (9/16/2014)

Scientists, including University of Oregon chemist Geraldine Richmond, have tapped oil and water to create scaffolds of self-assembling, synthetic proteins called peptoid nanosheets that mimic complex biological mechanisms and processes. ...> Full Article


Scientists sequence complete genome of E. coli strain responsible for food poisoning (9/15/2014)

Scientists sequence complete genome of E. coli strain responsible for food poisoningResearchers at the University of California, San Diego have produced the first complete genome sequencing of a strain of E. coli that is a common cause of outbreaks of food poisoning in the United States. Although the E. coli strain EDL933 was first isolated in the 1980s, it gained national attention in 1993 when it was linked to an outbreak of food poisoning from Jack-in-the-Box restaurants in the western United States. ...> Full Article


Scientists devise a bar code for the bacteria that causes tuberculosis (9/14/2014)

Doctors and researchers will be able to easily identify different types of tuberculosis (TB) thanks to a new genetic barcode devised by scientists from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. ...> Full Article


Mice study shows efficacy of new gene therapy approach for toxin exposures (9/13/2014)

New research led by Charles Shoemaker, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Infectious Disease and Global Health at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, shows that gene therapy may offer significant advantages in prevention and treatment of botulism exposure over current methods. The findings of the National Institutes of Health funded study appear in the Aug. 29 issue of PLOS ONE. ...> Full Article

Genomic sequencing reveals mutations, insights into 2014 Ebola outbreak (9/11/2014)

In response to an ongoing, unprecedented outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa, a team of researchers from the Broad Institute and Harvard University, in collaboration with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation and researchers across institutions and continents, has rapidly sequenced and analyzed more than 99 Ebola virus genomes. Their findings could have important implications for rapid field diagnostic tests. The team reports its results online in the journal Science. ...> Full Article


Cicada study discovers 2 genomes that function as 1 (9/10/2014)

Cicada study discovers 2 genomes that function as 1University of Montana researchers discovered that Hodgkinia had subtly become more complex through a speciation event, in which the original lineage split to produce two separate but interdependent species of Hodgkinia. What was previously thought to be a tripartite, or a three-way symbiosis, is now proven to actually be a four-way symbiosis. ...> Full Article
