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
Genomic sequencing is supposed to reveal the entire genetic makeup of an organism.
Exploiting individual genomes for personalized medicine may be more complicated than medical scientists have suspected.
ANZAC Research Institute uses NextCODE's diagnostics and discovery solutions to mine entire genomes for novel mutations in X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June
From antiseptic oils to the construction of didgeridoos, the traditional Australian Aboriginal wind instrument, the eucalyptus tree serves myriad purposes, accounting for its status as one of the world’s most widely planted hardwood trees.
Citrus is the world's most widely cultivated fruit crop. In the US alone, the citrus crop was valued at over $3.1 billion in 2013.
The first complete sequence of the sheep genome has been completed by an international team of scientists after eight years of collaboration.
SALT LAKE CITY, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists at the University of Utah (U of U), the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and colleagues have developed
Scientists at the University of Utah (U of U), the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and colleagues have developed a powerful tool called pVAAST that combines linkage analysis with case control association to help researchers and clinicians identify disease-causing mutations in families faster and more precisely than ever before.
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.
