In a new discovery that represents a major step in solving a critical design challenge, Arizona State University Professor Hao Yan has led a research team to produce a wide variety of 2-D and 3-D structures that push the boundaries of the burgeoning field of DNA nanotechnology.

Shortcut Map Could Simplify The Hunt For Disease-Causing Genes

Certain diseases are caused by single gene mutations, and with current techniques for identifying the disease-causing gene producing hundreds of potential gene candidates, it is difficult for scientists to pinpoint the single causative gene.

Predictability is often used synonymously with “boring,” as in that story or that outcome was so predictable.

How The Fruit Fly Got Its Wings

Scientists have delved deeper into the evolutionary history of the fruit fly than ever before to reveal the genetic activity that led to the development of wings – a key to the insect’s ability to survive.

Extreme Algae Thieves Its Genes From Bacteria

Researchers have found evidence one tough species of algae steals its ability to endure extreme environments from the bacteria it preys upon.

Genome Police Undermined By Selfish Gene
2013-03-05 10:58:36

Biologists have been observing the “selfish” genetic entity segregation distorter (SD) in fruit flies for decades. Its story is a thriller among molecules, in which the SD gene destroys maturing sperm that have a rival chromosome. A new study reveals a tactic that gives SD’s villainy an extra edge.

Knockout Mouse
2013-10-02 11:52:01

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...
