Genetics News & Research

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


Assortativity signatures of transcription factor networks contribute to robustness (9/12/2014)

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


Finalized policy on genomic data sharing (9/9/2014)

The National Institutes of Health has issued a final NIH Genomic Data Sharing policy to promote data sharing as a way to speed the translation of data into knowledge, products and procedures that improve health while protecting the privacy of research participants. The final policy was posted in the Federal Register Aug. 26, 2014 and published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts Aug. 27, 2014. ...> Full Article


Encyclopedia of how genomes function gets much bigger (9/8/2014)

A big step in understanding the mysteries of the human genome was unveiled today in the form of three analyses that provide the most detailed comparison yet of how the genomes of the fruit fly, roundworm, and human function. The analyses will likely offer insights into how the information in the human genome regulates development, and how it is responsible for diseases. ...> Full Article


Researchers work to understand gene expression across organisms (9/7/2014)

Fruit flies and roundworms have long been used as model organisms to learn more about human biology and disease. Now, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found that although many aspects of regulatory networks are conserved among the three distantly related organisms, other differences have emerged over evolutionary time. ...> Full Article


Scientists map the 'editing marks' on fly, worm, human genomes (9/6/2014)

In the Aug. 28 issue of the journal Nature a multi-institution research network called modENCODE (the Model Organism ENCylopedia Of DNA Elements) published three major papers that map and compare the genomes and epigenomes of humans and two model organisms, the fly, D. melanogaster, and the worm, C. elegans, in unprecedented detail. The fly and worm could serve as model organisms for screening drugs and micronutrients that might alter the epigenome, which is implicated in many diseases. ...> Full Article


Researcher isolates environmental influences in genome-wide association studies (9/5/2014)

Model allows researcher to remove false positive findings that plague modern research when many dozens of factors and their interactions are suggested to play a role in causing complex diseases. ...> Full Article


Revolutionary handheld DNA diagnostic unit allows lab-quality analysis in the field (9/4/2014)

Revolutionary handheld DNA diagnostic unit allows lab-quality analysis in the fieldA revolutionary handheld and battery-powered DNA diagnostic device invented at New Zealand's University of Otago is poised to become a commonly used field tool for rapidly detecting suspected viruses or bacteria in samples while also determining the level of infection. ...> Full Article


Signatures of selection inscribed on poplar genomes (9/3/2014)

In a study published ahead online Aug. 24, 2014 in Nature Genetics, a team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, and West Virginia University used a combination of genome-wide selection scans and analyses to understand the processes involved in shaping the genetic variation of natural poplar (Populus trichocarpa) populations. The approach applied genomics to ecological questions, and could help developing more accurate predictive climate change models. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop models to study polyelectrolytes, including DNA and RNA (9/2/2014)

Researchers develop models to study polyelectrolytes, including DNA and RNAResearchers from North Carolina State University have developed a novel and versatile modeling strategy to simulate polyelectrolyte systems. The model has applications for creating new materials as well as for studying polyelectrolytes, including DNA and RNA. ...> Full Article
