Over the last 50 years, the spotting of newborn's blood onto filter paper for disease screening, called Guthrie cards, has become so routine that since 2000, more than 90% of newborns in the United States have had Guthrie cards created.
The sequencing of the human genome has provided a wealth of genetic information, yet the goal of understanding the function of every gene remains outstanding.
Scientists from Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research have published a paper, online Feb. 22 in Nature Cell Biology, describing gene expression in a prostate cancer cell: more sweeping, more targeted and more complex than we could ever have imagined, even five years ago.
Researchers from the Institute of Psychiatry (IoP), Kingâ€™s College London, have identified numerous novel regions of the genome where the chemical modifications involved in controlling gene expression are influenced by either genetic variation or the parental origin of that particular stretch of DNA.
