Researchers are developing a new kind of DNA sequencer that will make the dream of "reading" a person's genetic code for less than $1,000 a reality The first human genome took 13 years and $3 billion to sequence. Today, geneticists can generate the same information in a matter of months, for a fraction of the cost. As "next-generation" gene sequencers begin to make their mark on the life sciences, teams around the world are racing to develop new and improved DNA sequencers that can ingest a...

Biologist Mikhail Matz uses next-generation sequencers and a massive, NSF-supported supercomputer to study corals at the genomic level and look for evolutionary changes Our oceans are getting warmer and more acidic every year; as a result, coral reefs are rapidly declining. Biologist Mikhail Matz is monitoring this process at the genomic level, in anticipation of evolutionary developments that may signal better news. "Corals have a substantial potential to evolve, and this is the high time...

Using the NSF-funded Ranger supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Pengyu Ren is working to develop faster, cheaper ways to search for new drugs Most drugs enter our bodies as small molecules, ligands that bind to the surface of target proteins, inhibiting their function and protecting our health. For a drug to tame a headache or reduce a swollen knee, the drug needs to be effective at small doses, and selective enough to limit side effects. With so many medicines to choose...
