Writing about the weird soft-bodied fossils found in the Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies, paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould noted that of 25 initial body plans exhibited by the fossils, all but four were quickly eliminated.
How does a stem cell decide what path to take?
The subseafloor is home to over 1/3 of the bacteria on the planet, but up until recently it was unclear if this huge microbial biosphere was alive and dividing.
Transparency Market Research added a new report "Gene Expression Reagents Market: Global Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2013 - 2019" to its report store.
Twelve years ago, UNC School of Medicine researcher Brian Strahl, PhD, found that a protein called Set2 plays a role in how yeast genes are expressed – specifically how DNA gets transcribed into messenger RNA.
New Book ‘Gene Expression and Its Regulation’ highlights significant molecular approach in the field of biology. New York (PRWEB) June 09, 2014 “Gene
So-called silent DNA mutations earned their title because, according to the fundamental rules of biology, they should be inconsequential.
The first complete sequence of the sheep genome has been completed by an international team of scientists after eight years of collaboration.

Striving for the protein equivalent of the Human Genome Project, an international team of researchers has created an initial catalog of the human "proteome," or all of the proteins in the human body.
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...
