Graduate student Markita Landry describes her research, learning experiences and cultural adjustment in Japan as part of NSF's EAPSI program Proteins are able to identify a tiny DNA target--usually only a few base pairs long--among thousands of non-targeted base pairs. I study how that happens using high resolution, optical traps. And, to help advance my research for my doctoral thesis, I spent a summer doing research in Toshio Yanagida's laboratory in Osaka, Japan, as part of NSF's East Asia...

Biologists at the University of California, San Diego have found another member in a new class of cellular motor proteins that rewind and seal together sections of the double-stranded DNA molecule that occasionally but perilously become unwound. Their discovery, which provides a promising new avenue for the development of drugs that kill cancer cells, is detailed in a paper published in this week's early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The same...

Researchers at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences have developed a novel algebraic model of DNA "hybridization," a process central to most biotechnology devices that monitor changes in cell's gene expression or characterize a cell's genome. Their work, which is described in the journal Physical Review E, provides an additional tool for understanding how biological systems function and could enhance methods and designs of technologies used in cancer and genetics...

By Matt Shipman, North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University have found a way to optimize the development of DNA self-assembling materials, which hold promise for technologies ranging from drug delivery to molecular sensors. The key to the advance is the discovery of the "Goldilocks" length for DNA strands used in self-assembly "“ not too long, not too short, but just right. DNA strands contain genetic coding that will form bonds with another strand...

Brief Introduction To DNA Probes
2014-01-12 00:00:00

DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...
