Latest Gene Stories
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 genetic variant linked to sudden cardiac death leads to protein overproduction in heart cells.
Scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, have identified how a specific stretch of DNA controls far-off genes to influence the formation of the face.
A group of 11 genes can successfully predict whether an individual is at increased risk of alcoholism, a research team from the United States and Germany reported Tuesday.
Whitehead Institute scientists have identified a genetic cause of a facial disorder known as hemifacial microsomia (HFM).
It is well-known that all life on Earth is made up of two base pairs, known as A-T (adenine–thymine) and C-G (cytosine–guanine), which form the standard double helix DNA strand.
Werner Maas' "Gene Expression and Its Regulation" highlights significant molecular approach in the field of biology. NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
First example of in vivo replication of a synthetic DNA base pair published in Nature SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Synthorx Inc.
Each time a human cell divides, it must first make a copy of its 46 chromosomes to serve as an instruction manual for the new cell.
Recent research has shown that tiny fragments of DNA circulating in a person's blood can allow scientists to monitor cancer growth and even get a sneak peek into a developing fetus' gene sequences.
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...
