Overlooked DNA shuffling drives deadly paediatric brain tumour Medical Xpress One of the deadliest forms of paediatric brain tumour, Group 3 medulloblastoma, is linked to a variety of large-scale DNA rearrangements which all have the same overall...
Your Computer Downtime Could Help Crack the Alzheimer's Code Re/code A team led by Dmitri Klimov, an associate professor of computational biology in the School of Systems Biology, has constructed complex computer models to study molecules...
University of North Texas DNA lab helps solve 42-year-old mystery Chron.com FILE - In this undated file photo provided by the South Dakota Attorney General's Office shows a Studebaker with skeletal remains found in Brule Creek near Elk Point, S.D.
Scientists unlock secrets of hybrid species Manawatu Standard Computational biologist professor Murray Cox and molecular biologist Austen Ganley led the research that analysed what happens when a new species is formed.
Haplotyping of human genomes is improved by augmenting experimental dilution-based haplotyping with statistical analyses, a strategy known until now only as 'Moleculo.' (1st whole-genome long read haplotyping Moleculo
How can our immune system defend us against aggressors so diverse such as viruses, parasites, fungi and tumors? The secret lies in the large number of clones of T and B lymphocytes, each of which expresses a particular specific receptor.
Scientists have gained new insight into fragile X syndrome -- the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability -- by studying the case of a person without the disorder, but with two of its classic symptoms.
Researchers have assembled the first high-resolution, 3-D maps of entire folded genomes and found a structural basis for gene regulation, a kind of “genomic origami” that allows the same genome to produce different types of cells.
Dr Richard Badge's insight:
The original 2009 paper is still a favourite, but excited to see the advances made here!
Bad teeth? Blame your genes CNN Scientists say the health of your teeth depends on a combination of genetics and dental hygiene. We all know that person who never brushes, eats tons of candy and rarely (if ever) has a cavity.
Phys.Org Scientists seek to develop new imaging capabilities to view a human virus in ... Phys.Org Researchers take snapshots of the structures and use computational algorithms to construct 3-D models of the imaged structures.
Map of how DNA controls cells may boost gene therapies New Scientist The team combined the map with data from studies comparing the genomes of sick and healthy people, known as genome-wide association studies (GWAS).
Google-backed genomics alliance details data interoperability plans FierceBiotech IT The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health was thrust into the headlines last week when Google ($GOOG) joined its ranks.
RedOrbit Diabetes Genetics Study Brings In Data From Different Ethnic Groups RedOrbit Seven new genetic regions associated with type 2 diabetes have been identified in the largest study to date of the genetic basis of the disease.
