PacBioToCA Is the Newest Addition to Convey’s Expanding Bioinformatics Suite, Helping to Speed Genomic Research Richardson, TX (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
A group of Illinois researchers, led by Centennial Chair Professor of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Huimin Zhao, has demonstrated the use of an innovative DNA engineering technique to discover potentially valuable functions hidden within bacterial genomes.
Genome sequencing is much more common than in the past. In a large part, this is attributable to advances in biotechnologies and computer software, however, there is still some question about both the accuracy of different sequencing methods and the best ways to evaluate these efforts.
The 1,000 genomes project will grow in its next iteration, sequencing in different ways the genomes of 2,500 people from five large regions of the globe.
A new massive RAM computing resource for genomic assembly with two nodes (or computers) that each have 1 terabyte of RAM (random access memory) will enable genomic scientists to assemble complicated genomes faster and with fewer errors.
Genome sequence is the culmination of an extensive research program pioneered at Clemson University.
Biologists analyzing DNA in search of the molecular underpinnings of life have consistently favored species with small genomes, which are cheaper to sequence and lack the repetitive "junk" that clutters bigger genomes.
