Latest Human genome Stories
Two mutations central to the development of infantile myofibromatosis (IM)—a disorder characterized by multiple tumors involving the skin, bone, and soft tissue—may provide new therapeutic targets.
The genomes of two of the most economically important forest trees in the world were released by Canadian and Swedish scientists. Between them, the white spruce and the Norway spruce genomes have 20-30 billion base-pairs and are up to 10 times larger than the human genome, making these sequence assemblies the largest to date.
Researchers have found that a unique little carnivorous plant is particularly interesting for geneticists because it does not appear to have so-called 'junk' DNA – 97 percent of its genome is comprised of actual genes.
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund and National Institute of Mental Health join in awarding millions for Whole Genome Sequencing. Boston (PRWEB) May 09, 2013 The
An international research consortium led by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), the CIBERER and the University of Wurzburg (Germany) has discovered a gene that can cause three totally different diseases, depending on how it is altered.
A group of 50 researchers from around the globe, including biology professors Daniel Warren, Ph.D., from Saint Louis University and Leslie Buck, Ph.D., from the University of Toronto, have spent the last several years sequencing and analyzing the genome of the western painted turtle and the results of their research point to some important conclusions that may be important for human health.
Two new studies from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute involving the genome of zebrafish have been published in the journal Nature this week, giving insight into the relationship between humans, zebrafish and genetic mutations.
