Latest DNA Stories
As the price for decoding a person's DNA keeps dropping, expectations for personalized medicine based on specific genetic profiling rise.
In December 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first high-throughput DNA sequencer (also known commonly as a "gene sequencer"), an instrument that allows laboratories to quickly and efficiently sequence a person's DNA for genetic testing, medical diagnoses and perhaps one day, customized drug therapies.

Calico cats are renowned and beloved for their funky orange and black patchwork or "tortoiseshell" fur. New research from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), has further linked this unique color pattern to X chromosome inactivation or "silencing."
DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...
Bacillus subtilis, also known as hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. It is rod-shaped and a member of the genus Bacillus. It also has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though recent research has proven this to not be strictly correct. It is not a human pathogen although...
