Using Supercomputers To Speed Up Genome Analysis
2014-02-20 11:11:12

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers writing in the journal Bioinformatics say that genome analysis can be radically accelerated. Over the years, the cost of sequencing an entire human genome has dropped, but analyzing three billion base pairs of genetic information from a single genome can take months. A team from the University of Chicago is reporting that one of the world’s fastest supercomputers is able to analyze 240 full genomes in about two days....

New Childhood Epilepsy Genes
2013-08-12 10:40:43

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A large, international research consortium has identified 25 new mutations on nine key genes responsible for childhood epilepsy. Because these mutations are not inherited, the scientists used a state-of-the-art genetic technique called exome sequencing to identify them. "It appears that the time for using this approach to understand complex neurological disorders has arrived," said David Goldstein, study leader and director of the...
