Latest Genetic mapping Stories
Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered that one gene in a common fungus acts as a master regulator, and deleting it has opened access to a wealth of new compounds that have never before been studied – with the potential to identify new antibiotics.
New WGS/WES workflows compatible with latest versions of GATK and available through web-based evaluations. Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Large-scale, deep re-sequencing of 115 cucumbers worldwide has led to the creation of a genomic variation map for the vegetable that includes 3.6 million variants, an international team of scientists report in a new study.
The man who helped map the human genome says that scientists will one day be able to use 3D printers to create alien life forms on Earth.
How do the millions of genetic variants - ranging in size from a change in a single nucleotide (the As,Ts,Cs and Gs that define the genetic alphabet) to huge rearrangements of chromosomes that can affect many different genes - found in each human chromosome affect the health, longevity and lives of people?
Most of us are right handed, with only approximately ten percent of the population of the UK, and the world at large, being left handed. But why that is so remains a mystery.
- Large; stout; burly.
