Latest Genetic mapping Stories
European scientists, led by researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE)'s Faculty of Medicine in the context of the GEUVADIS project, today present a map that points to the genetic causes of differences between people.
The genome of the Chinese hamster - which supplies the cell cultures used by the pharmaceutical industry to produce biopharmaceutical products such as antibodies used in medicine - has been sequenced by an international team of genome researchers.
Scientists from Zhejiang University in China and BGI Shenzhen have completed and analyzed the genomic sequence of the endangered Chinese alligator (Alligator sinensis) – the first published crocodilian genome.
A team from the University of Washington has unveiled a comprehensive portrait of the genome of the world’s first immortal cell line, known as HeLa.
Duke researchers have devised a way to quickly and easily target and tinker with any gene in the human genome.
Researchers have sequenced the genome of Emiliania huxleyi ("Ehux"), a species of single-celled photosynthetic marine algae that they say is responsible for removing carbon dioxide from the air, supplying the oxygen we breath, and even forming the basis of marine food chains.
The genomes of two of the most economically important forest trees in the world were released by Canadian and Swedish scientists. Between them, the white spruce and the Norway spruce genomes have 20-30 billion base-pairs and are up to 10 times larger than the human genome, making these sequence assemblies the largest to date.
