Latest DNA Stories
Researchers have pinpointed a new mechanism of how natural variation in our DNA alters an individual's risk for developing heart disease by interfering with the ability of a developmental gene to interact with a specialized type of RNA.
Scientists have created the first detailed map of the way human genes work throughout major cells and tissues.
This report broadly categorizes the global gene expression analysis market into three segments, namely, instrumentation, consumables, and services.
Male bears are seemingly always on the prowl, roaming much greater distances than females, particularly for mating.
While scientists can already use DNA to determine an unknown person’s gender or ancestry, new research appearing in the March 20 issue of PLOS Genetics suggests that it will soon be able to help identify his or her actual facial features.

It is commonly agreed in the scientific community that Polynesians expanded their culture throughout the South Pacific some 3,000 years ago and later arrived in places like Tahiti and Hawaii. But did the Polynesians make it all the way to South America?

APDN cutting-edge technology was featured on New York's WABC – TV on Thursday, March 6. Stony Brook, NY (PRWEB) March 10, 2014 Applied DNA Sciences
Our DNA and its architecture are duplicated every time our cells divide. Histone proteins are key building blocks of this architecture and contain crucial information that regulates our genes.
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...
- In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
- In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
