Affymetrix Inc. (Nasdaq:AFFX) today announced that a team of researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany is using Affymetrix' Whole Transcript (WT) gene expression technology to better understand the molecular basis of drug-induced liver injury (DILI). The ultimate goal of the project is to develop a diagnostic array that can detect signals of liver toxicity earlier and more accurately than traditional techniques. DILI is one of the most common side effects of pharmacotherapy and...

By Pasinetti, Giulio M Hiller-Sturmhofel, Susanne Systems biology approaches may be useful for studying the mechanisms underlying alcohol's harmful effects on the brain. Such approaches already are used in the study of Alzheimer's disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that, with the overall increase in life expectancy, will affect an increasing proportion of the population and become an increasingly serious public health concern. Systems biology approaches such as...

BERKELEY, CA -- Want biodiversity? Look no further than the air around you. It could be teeming with more than 1,800 types of bacteria, according to a first-of-its-kind census of airborne microbes recently conducted by scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). The team used an innovative DNA test to catalog the bacteria in air samples taken from the Texas cities of San Antonio and Austin. Surprisingly, they found a widely varied...

TOKYO (Reuters) - Toshiba Corp. said on Friday it had licensed patents on DNA chips and DNA detection and analysis to California-based Antara BioSciences Inc. Antara, established in 2005 by unlisted Tokyo-based genome research start-up Eurus Genomics, plans to use the patents to develop for sale in the United States DNA chips and systems used in in-vitro diagnosis of disease in humans, Toshiba said in a statement. A Toshiba spokeswoman declined to disclose the financial details of...

By Patricia Reaney LONDON (Reuters) - How can humans and chimpanzees, who share about 99 percent of the same genes be so different? Scientists in the United States and Australia say changes in the gene expression, not just genes, is a big part of what separates humans from their nearest relatives. Gene expression is the process by which genes are turned on or off. Not all of the estimated 30,000 genes in humans are activated at the same time in every cell. "We think gene expression...

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Why can one person smoke with no apparent ill-effects while another gets lung cancer? Why does one identical twin get Alzheimer's when his brother does not? Two U.S. research projects announced on Wednesday will develop new ways to analyze data try to find answers to those and other such health questions in the links among genes, environment and disease. One program at the National Institutes of Health will examine some...
