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.
An international team of scientists led by the UA has sequenced the genome of African rice.
The genome of Solanum pennellii, a wild relative of the domestic tomato, has been published by an international group of researchers
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
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.
