Hundreds of small regions of the genome that appear to be uniquely regulated in human neurons have been identified in a new study led by the University of Massachusetts.
A massive team of international researchers has announced the successful sequencing of the female domestic pig’s genome.
A presentation at the American Society of Human Genetics 2012 meeting updated genetics experts about a one-year-old research initiative that brought together researchers, clinicians and policy experts to tackle the challenges of incorporating new genomic technologies into clinical care of newborns, infants and children with anatomical defects whose causes are unknown.
