LAS VEGAS, Oct.
Scientists have finally cracked the code of the three dimensional structure of the human genome.
Using computer simulations, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers has identified some of the pathways through which single complementary strands of DNA interact and combine to form the double helix.
Theresa M Reineke, associate professor of chemistry in the College of Science, and colleagues in her lab at Virginia Tech and at the University of Cincinnati have developed a new molecule that can travel into cells, deliver genetic cargo, and packs a beacon so scientists can follow its movements in living systems.
LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- "Why free? I want to level the playing field. The only variable in this system is you. All I ask in return for using my system is for every user to share it with as many people as they can," said Bob Ainuu Afamasaga.
New York University chemists have created three-dimensional DNA structures, a breakthrough bridging the molecular world to the world where we live.
In the chilling science fiction movie Gattaca, Ethan Hawke stars as a man with "inferior genes" who assumes another's genetic identity to escape a dead-end future.
Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and IBM's Almaden Research Center have developed a new technique to orient and position self-assembled DNA shapes and patternsâ€”or "DNA origami"
Using tiny crystals called quantum dots, Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a highly sensitive test to look for DNA attachments that often are early warning signs of cancer.
TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug.
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...

- In medicine, cauterization.
