Latest Gene Stories
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.
On the 60th anniversary of the publication of the paper describing the double-helix structure of DNA, researchers from Cambridge University reportedly have proven the existence of four-stranded “quadruple helix” DNA structures within the human genome.
Working on a hunch that the mice probably inherit this behavior, biologist Hopi Hoekstra conducted a genetic analysis of several species of mice and found that three parts of the mouse’s genome control their burrows' size and features.
When Charles Darwin first sketched how species evolved by natural selection, he drew what looked like a tree.
New study reveals snippets of information contained in dark matter that can alter the way a gene is assembled.
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...
