In a new study, scientists have searched for mutations in the gene regions of more than 100 kidney cancer samples, the largest number of samples from a single tumor type to be sequenced to date.
Genome rearrangements in 24 breast cancers.
Geneticists have recently finished analyzing the genomes of two different types of cancer cells, giving them the first complete genetic map of the devastating disease and marking a milestone in the history of cancer research.
Scientists in Cambridge have discovered that the loss of a key segment of DNA can lead to severe childhood obesity.
Researchers have characterized a new multi drug resistant strain of Salmonella Typhimurium that is causing life-threatening disease in Africa.
A global collaborative has produced a first draft of the genome of a domesticated pig, an achievement that will lead to insights in agriculture, medicine, conservation and evolution.
A team of geneticists at Los Alamos National Laboratory, together with a consortium of international researchers, has recently proposed a set of standards designed to elucidate the quality of publicly available genetic sequencing information.
For the first time, researchers are able to look at the need for every gene in a bacterial cell in a single experiment. The new method will transform the study of gene activity and the search for weaknesses in bacterial armories.
Genome-wide meta-analysis identifies 22 regions associated with blood cell traits.
In 1996, researchers from major genome sequencing centers around the world convened on the island of Bermuda and defined a finished genome as a gapless sequence with a nucleotide error rate of one or less in 10,000 bases.
