Latest Genetic mapping Stories
From time to time, living cells will accidentally make an extra copy of a gene during the normal replication process.
Researchers have pinpointed a new mechanism of how natural variation in our DNA alters an individual's risk for developing heart disease by interfering with the ability of a developmental gene to interact with a specialized type of RNA.
Scientists have created the first detailed map of the way human genes work throughout major cells and tissues.
SALT LAKE CITY, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery is partnering with California based Omicia, Inc, to make analyzing a patient's genome as routine
The massive genome of the loblolly pine—around seven times bigger than the human genome—is the largest genome sequenced to date and the most complete conifer genome sequence ever published.
Researchers from the University of Adelaide's School of Dentistry say a visit to the dentist could eventually require a detailed look at a patient’s genes.
Over the years, the cost of sequencing an entire human genome has dropped, but analyzing three billion base pairs of genetic information from a single genome can take months. A team of researchers is now reporting that supercomputers can dramatically speed up that process.
Irys System to Create a High Resolution Genome Map for Genome in a Bottle Consortium SAN DIEGO and MARCO ISLAND, Fla., Feb.
More than 20 percent of the Neanderthal genome survives in modern human populations, and that individuals currently living outside of Africa are composed of between one and four percent Neanderthal DNA, according to a pair of new research papers published on Wednesday.
-- Bird identified DNA regions where genes are activated, a fundamental contribution in the field of epigenetics, which studies how environmental factors influence diseases such as cancer
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
