The unique genomic signature could serve as a research model for founding events Researchers at the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center and University of Montreal have discovered that the genomic signature inherited by today's 6 million French Canadians from the first 8,500 French settlers who colonized New France some 400 years ago has gone through an unparalleled change in human history, in a remarkably short timescale. This unique signature could serve as an ideal model to study...

Recreating Alien DNA On Earth
2013-10-07 12:50:13

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The man who helped map the human genome says that scientists will one day be able to use 3D printing technology to create alien life forms on Earth. Dr Craig Venter wrote in his latest book "Life at the Speed of Light: From the Double Helix to the Dawn of Digital Life" that scientists could design basic organisms in the future based on alien life forms by using a robotically controlled genome sequencing unit. Venter created the...

How do the millions of genetic variants - ranging in size from a change in a single nucleotide (the As,Ts,Cs and Gs that define the genetic alphabet) to huge rearrangements of chromosomes that can affect many different genes - found in each human chromosome affect the health, longevity and lives of people? In a major report in the journal Science, an international consortium of groups that includes the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center describe an analytical approach...

Deletions may be linked to miswiring of brain neurons. New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013 Using powerful genetic sequencing technology, a team of investigators, led by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, scanned the genome of hundreds of individuals, and discovered those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were more likely to have gene deletions than were people without the disorder. That means those individuals — seven percent of the study group...

Pig Study Suggests Humans Are Predisposed To Overeating
2013-10-03 13:12:53

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online By studying the eating habits of almost 1,200 pigs, Danish researchers have found evidence that humans may be genetically predisposed to overeating. Study author Haja Kadarmideen, a health and medical science professor at the University of Copenhagen, said his team wanted to learn why some of us seem more predisposed to reaching for the cookie jar. They chose to study pigs because they are a well-known model for studying human obesity...
