Glenna Picton, Baylor College of Medicine A team of scientists from around the world led by Baylor College of Medicine and Washington University in St. Louis has completed the genome sequence of the common marmoset – the first sequence of a New World Monkey – providing new information about the marmoset's unique rapid reproductive system, physiology and growth, shedding new light on primate biology and evolution. The team published the work today in the journal Nature Genetics....

Viral Relics Reveal Cancer's 'Footprint' On Our Evolution
2014-07-21 03:57:19

University of Oxford Cancer has left its ‘footprint’ on our evolution, according to a study which examined how the relics of ancient viruses are preserved in the genomes of 38 mammal species. Viral relics are evidence of the ancient battles our genes have fought against infection. Occasionally the retroviruses that infect an animal get incorporated into that animal’s genome and sometimes these relics get passed down from generation to generation – termed ‘endogenous...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers has successfully completed the chromosome-based draft of the bread wheat genome, giving them the first-ever genetic blueprint of the crop grown on over 500 million acres worldwide and used to produce nearly 700 million tons of food annually. The group, which is known as the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC), managed to produce an ordered draft sequence of the 17-gigabase...

University of Oxford Early maize farmers selected for genes that improved the harvesting of sunlight, a new detailed study of how plants use 'doubles' of their genomes reveals. The findings could help current efforts to improve existing crop varieties. Oxford University researchers captured a 'genetic snapshot' of maize as it existed 10 million years ago when the plant made a double of its genome – a 'whole genome duplication' event. They then traced how maize evolved to use these...

Virginia Tech Virginia Tech researchers discover which genetic changes pass the test of extremely different ecologies Scientists have long puzzled over the genetic differences between fruit flies that live hardly a puddle jump apart in a natural environment known as "Evolution Canyon" in Mount Carmel, Israel. Now, an international team of researchers led by scientists with the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech has peered into the DNA of these closely related flies...

Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncologicas (CNIO) Over 99% of human protein coding genes have an origin that predates primates by over 50 million years. The study questions the genomic annotations of many different species How nutrients are metabolized and how neurons communicate in the brain are just some of the messages coded by the 3 billion letters that make up the human genome. The detection and characterization of the genes present in this mass of information is a complex...

Northern Greater Galago, Otolemur garnettii
2012-05-29 12:39:27

The northern greater galago (Otolemur garnettii), also called Garnett's greater galago, is native to Africa. This species is important to genetic research because of the low genomic sequence, completed in 2006, that makes it possible to bridge the genome sequence of higher primates like chimps, and non-primate species like rodents. However, the small 2x genome is not large enough to be a complete genome. The northern greater galago has been given a conservation status of “Least Concern”...

Coccolithovirus, a giant double-stranded DNA virus, infects Emiliania huxleyi, a species of coccolithophore. The virus was first observed in 1999 by W.H. Wilson and his team at the Marine Biological Association. It was sequenced for the EhV-86 strain during the summer of 2005, and was found to be a "giant-virus" having 472 protein-coding genes. It is the largest known marine virus by genome.
