Latest Genome Stories
A team of scientists from around the world has completed the genome sequence of the common marmoset, providing new information about the marmoset's unique rapid reproductive system, physiology and growth, shedding new light on primate biology and evolution.
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.
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.
Led by Qualcomm, Gregory Lucier Makes First Investment after Leading Life Technologies SAN DIEGO, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Edico Genome announced today that it has raised $10
Irys System will be available through MDxK for South Korea and Millennium Science for Australia and New Zealand SAN DIEGO, SEOUL, South Korea and MELBOURNE, Australia, July 16, 2014
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.
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.
Researchers from BGI, working within the Metagenomics of the Human Intestinal Tract (MetaHIT) project, and in collaboration with other institutions around the world , have established the highest quality integrated gene set for the human gut microbiome to date- a close-to-complete catalogue of the microbes that reside inside us and massively outnumber our own cells.
NextCODE capabilities will power ACoRD/UCD leadership in sequence-based diagnostics and large-scale whole-genome discovery efforts in pediatric disorders CAMBRIDGE,
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
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.
