National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 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. Helping get the new device approved was another first: the initial use of a reference set of standard genotypes,...

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....

Word of the Day
humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
