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.
OriGene Technologies, the industry’s largest supplier of gene-centric research tools, launches a new product line of gene-knockout kits using CRISPR technologies.
The robust defenses that yeast cells have evolved to protect themselves from environmental threats hold lessons that can be used to design computer networks and analyze how secure they are, say computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University.
Large sections of the genome that were once referred to as “junk” DNA have been linked to human heart failure.
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...
