Latest Gene Stories
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
Strand NGS, formerly Avadis NGS is an integrated desktop software that enables biomedical researchers to manage, analyze, and visualize data from next-generation sequencing (NGS) experiments.
The cattle genome has now been mapped to a hitherto unknown degree of detail. This constitutes a quantum leap for research into the history and genetics of cattle.
Subtle changes in our DNA could help explain why some people are taller than others, the international team of researchers behind the largest genome-wide association study ever conducted report in the October 5 edition of the journal Nature Genetics.
New research from the University of California, Santa Cruz has revealed that two sets of primate genes have been battling it out over the millennia and this conflict has driven the complexity of primate genomes.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 26 and 27, two events change the way we think about DNA: 1.
Sticklebacks, the roaches of the fish world, are the ideal animal in which to study the genes that control body shape. They’ve moved from the ocean into tens of thousands of freshwater streams and lakes around the world, each time changing their skeleton to adapt to the new environment.
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...
