Latest Gene Stories
By broadly comparing the DNA of children to that of elderly people, gene researchers have identified gene variants that influence lifespan, either by raising disease risk or by providing protection from disease.
By reproducing in the laboratory the complex interactions that cause human genes to turn on inside cells, Duke University bioengineers have created a system they believe can benefit gene therapy research and the burgeoning field of synthetic biology.
According to a new study in the journal Science Express, an international team of researchers has sequenced the entire rock pigeon genome, and made some interested discoveries in the process.
Many different tissues and organs form from pluripotent stem cells during embryonic development.
When researchers sequence the RNA of cancer cells, they can compare it to normal cells and see where there is more RNA.
Scientists from Cambridge University have developed a new method of long-term information storage: synthesized DNA.
Online narrated tutorial suite teaches you how to effectively and efficiently use OMIM Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013 Online Mendelian Inheritance
Biotechnologists have been working hard to address the climate change and limited fossil resource issues through the development of sustainable processes for the production of chemicals, fuels and materials from renewable non-food biomass.
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...
