Latest Gene Stories
Researchers from the US and Israel have identified the first-ever example of a creature capable of editing its own genetic makeup in order to blend into its surroundings – the squid.

BYU biologist Jonathan Alder has a startling secret he doesn't freely share: He knows when most of us are going to die.
Crack open any science textbook and it’ll tell you that DNA instruction are required to produce proteins. But a University of Utah-led team of researchers have discovered evidence suggesting otherwise.
New research from a team of European scientists has shown that genetic material is capable of surviving both the hostile environment of suborbital space and the violent passage through Earth’s atmosphere at a high rate of speed.
A team of scientists from Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute and IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center have developed a prototype DNA reader that could make whole genome profiling an everyday practice in medicine.
Researchers investigating the functional genome of the mouse have managed to map the creature’s so-called “mission control” centers, and found new clues as to why certain processes and systems in the rodents prevent the results of mouse studies from being successfully replicated in humans.
Thousands of never-before-seen genetic variants in the human genome have been uncovered using a new sequencing technology. These discoveries close many human genome mapping gaps that have long resisted sequencing.

Newfound Genetic Differences Provide Many Hints at Causes New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2014 Small differences in as many as a thousand genes contribute
A Knockout Mouse is a genetically engineered mouse in which researchers have inactivated, or “knocked out,” an existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it with an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity frequently causes changes in a mouse’s phenotype, which includes appearance, behavior, or other apparent and biochemical characteristics. Knockout mice are significant animal models for studying the role of genes which have been sequenced but whose functions haven’t...
