Latest Genome Stories
The cattle genome has now been mapped to a hitherto unknown degree of detail. This constitutes a quantum leap for research into the history and genetics of cattle.
Leading personal genetics company now offers both health and ancestry information exclusively to Canadians as part of 23andMe's Personal Genome Service(®) MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA,
LONDON, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The US personalized cancer Genome Sequencing market is primarily classified into Targeted Genome Sequencing and Whole-Genome Sequencing.
The amazing variety of human faces – far greater than that of most other animals – is the result of evolutionary pressure to make each of us unique and easily recognizable, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, scientists.
For multicellular life—plants and animals—to thrive in the oceans, there must be enough dissolved oxygen in the water.
By sequencing the genome of the coffee plant, an international team of researchers has discovered genetic secrets that could enable them to create new varieties of coffee that taste better, have varied levels or caffeine, or are better able to survive drought conditions and diseases.
Until a recent discovery by a University of Montana research lab, it was thought that cicadas had a symbiotic relationship with two important bacteria that live within the cells of its body.
A new way to quickly sequence genes of the invasive brown marmorated stink bug - developed by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the University of Maryland Department
PORTLAND, Oregon, August 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The new report by Allied Market Research titled, "DNA diagnostics Market (products, applications, techniques, end users
One aspect of the climate change models researchers have been developing looks at how plant ranges might shift, and how factors such as temperature, water availability, and light levels might come into play.
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.
