Genetically Altering E. Coli With New Semi-Synthetic DNA Base Pairs
2014-05-08 07:24:29

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It is well-known that all life on Earth is made up of two base pairs, known as A-T (adenine–thymine) and C-G (cytosine–guanine), which form the standard double helix DNA strand. But that could all change now that researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have engineered a bacterium to contain an extra pair of DNA “letters” that are not found anywhere else in nature. The cells of this bacterium are also able to...

The revolutionary NickaseNinja™ combines a tandem pair of gRNAs in a single vector. Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014 DNA2.0 today announced the release of a set of CRISPR/Cas9 tools for genome editing and engineering. At the heart of DNA2.0’s CRISPR toolset is the revolutionary NickaseNinja system, which offers the high fidelity editing of Cas9 nickase plus guide RNA (gRNA) pairs, in a convenient single-vector format. By co-expressing two guide RNAs using dual RNA polymerase...

[ Watch The Video: International Team Creates Glowing Green Bunnies ] Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online What do you get when you cross jelly fish DNA with a cuddly bunny? If researchers from universities in Hawaii and Turkey have anything to say about it, the combination could result in cheaper, more effective drugs for genetic diseases. Scientists have cloned a litter of rabbits which have been given a gene from a glowing jellyfish, effectively creating two...

A simpler and faster way of producing designer bacteria used in biotechnology processes has been developed by University of Adelaide researchers. The researchers have developed a new one-step bacterial genetic engineering process called 'clonetegration', published in the journal ACS Synthetic Biology. Led by Dr Keith Shearwin, in the University's School of Molecular and Biomedical Sciences, the research facilitates faster development of designer bacteria used in therapeutic drug...

Word of the Day
  • Like a worm in form or movement; vermiform; tortuous or sinuous; also, writhing or wriggling.
  • Like the track or trace of a worm; appearing as if worm-eaten; vermiculate.
