2014-03-20 11:02:54

The massive genome of the loblolly pine—around seven times bigger than the human genome—is the largest genome sequenced to date and the most complete conifer genome sequence ever published.

Europeans' Appearance Altered Over Five Millennia Of Natural Selection
2014-03-12 05:27:21

A great deal of research has been focused on the factors that have influenced the human genome since the end of the last Ice Age. An international team of scientists has analyzed ancient DNA from skeletons, finding that natural selection has had a major effect...

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

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.

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

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 of researchers is now reporting that supercomputers can dramatically speed up that process.

New Interactive Map Reveals Human History Of Genetic Mixing
2014-02-14 06:41:32

A multi-institutional team of researchers this week published in the journal Science a study identifying, dating and characterizing the genetic mixing between populations around the world. Along with the study, the team released an interactive map detailing the histories of this genetic mixing.

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

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.


Word of the Day
honeyguide
  • Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
Honeyguide birds have even been known to eat candles.
