Scientists have misunderstood one of the most fundamental processes in the life of plants because they have been looking at the wrong flower, according to University of Leeds researchers.

Herpes Virus Study Helps Confirm Humans Migrated 'Out Of Africa'

By comparing an array of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) strains, geneticists have found an alternate confirmation of the “out-of-Africa” hypothesis that describes the human Diaspora, according to a new report published in the journal PLoS ONE.

Cucumber Genome Resequenced Revealing An Evolutionary Enigma
2013-10-21 04:42:19

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.

Plug And Play Synthetic Biology - Rewriting An Entire Genome
2013-10-19 04:15:01

A team of scientists from Harvard and Yale have recorded the entire genome of the bacteria E. coli, and in a dramatic demonstration of the potential of rewriting an organism's genetic code, they have improved the bacterium's ability to resist viruses.

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.
