TAU researchers unravel the mysteries of DNA packaging.
The sequences of nonsense DNA that interrupt genes could be far more important to the evolution of genomes than previously thought.
University of Georgia scientists looking to understand the genetic mechanisms of plant defense and growth have found for the first time in plants an inverse relationship between gene duplication and alternative splicing.
A chemical cousin of the common antibiotic tetracycline might be useful in treating spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a currently incurable disease that is the leading genetic cause of death in infants.
Better tools for manipulating DNA in the laboratory may soon be possible with newly discovered deoxyribozymes (catalytic DNA) capable of cleaving single-stranded DNA, researchers at the University of Illinois say.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the second-leading cause of infant mortality in the world.
Emotions, popularly seated in the heart, shift with the alternative stimuli of love, hate and emotion.
The widely-used Affymetrix Whole-Transcript Gene 1.0 ST (sense target) microarray platform, normally used to assay gene expression, can also be utilized to interrogate exon-specific splicing.
