Researchers Map Genome Of Two Important Spruce Tree Species
2013-05-23 07:52:22

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The genomes of two of the most economically important forest trees in the world were released by Canadian and Swedish scientists. In Canada, the conifers supply raw materials for the forest industry, accounting for $23.7 billion of the nation´s economy in 2011, while the gross output of the Swedish forest industry was $29.7 billion in 2009. Between them, the white spruce and the Norway spruce genomes have 20-30 billion...

Genomic Survey Of Fungal Diversity On Human Skin
2013-05-23 06:02:17

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Your skin is literally covered with almost 200 different kinds of fungi. This isn´t the scene out of some twisted horror movie — it´s the conclusion of a team of American researchers who recently created a topographic map of fungi typically found on living human skin. To create their map, scientists from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) used genetic...

Technology will allow better surveillance of bacterial populations, understanding of vaccine effectiveness A new study led by researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK has, for the first time, used genome sequencing technology to track the changes in a bacterial population following the introduction of a vaccine. The study follows how the population of pneumococcal bacteria changed following the introduction of the 'Prevnar'...

Genome Study Of Two Turtle Species Sheds Light On Evolution Of Shell
2013-04-29 11:29:05

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With their unique outer shell and sharp beak, turtles and their evolutionary history have long been a mystery to biologists. A Nature Genetics report on the newly sequenced genomes of the soft-shell turtle and green sea turtle shows that the iconic reptiles have a common ancestor with crocodilians and birds — diverging from these groups between 270 and 240 million years ago. "The genome-wide phylogenetic analysis of two...

Scientists Hope To Improve Genome-wide Association Studies With Two New Methods
2013-04-26 11:25:54

University of California - San Diego As scientists probe and parse the genetic bases of what makes a human a human (or one human different from another), and vigorously push for greater use of whole genome sequencing, they find themselves increasingly threatened by the unthinkable: Too much data to make full sense of. In a pair of papers published in the April 25, 2013 issue of PLOS Genetics, two diverse teams of scientists, both headed by researchers at the University of California,...
