How Well Did You Sequence That Genome?
2014-02-27 13:24:50

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) In December 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first high-throughput DNA sequencer (also known commonly as a "gene sequencer"), an instrument that allows laboratories to quickly and efficiently sequence a person's DNA for genetic testing, medical diagnoses and perhaps one day, customized drug therapies. Helping get the new device approved was another first: the initial use of a reference set of standard genotypes,...

Using Supercomputers To Speed Up Genome Analysis
2014-02-20 11:11:12

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers writing in the journal Bioinformatics say that genome analysis can be radically accelerated. Over the years, the cost of sequencing an entire human genome has dropped, but analyzing three billion base pairs of genetic information from a single genome can take months. A team from the University of Chicago is reporting that one of the world’s fastest supercomputers is able to analyze 240 full genomes in about two days....

Genome Analysis Reveals Origins Of Genetic Adaptations For High Altitude In Tibetans
2014-02-11 09:00:22

University of Chicago Medical Center Genetic adaptations for life at high elevations found in residents of the Tibetan plateau likely originated around 30,000 years ago in peoples related to contemporary Sherpa. These genes were passed on to more recent migrants from lower elevations via population mixing, and then amplified by natural selection in the modern Tibetan gene pool, according to a new study by scientists from the University of Chicago and Case Western Reserve University,...

Anne D. Holden, PhD - Gladstone Institutes Gladstone's innovative technique in stem cells to boost scientists' ability to study - and potentially cure - genetic disease Sometimes biology is cruel. Sometimes simply a one-letter change in the human genetic code is the difference between health and a deadly disease. But even though doctors and scientists have long studied disorders caused by these tiny changes, replicating them to study in human stem cells has proven challenging. But now,...
