Our Secret Universe: The Hidden Life of the Cell

There is a battle playing out inside your body right now. It started billions of years ago and it is still being fought in every one of us every minute of every day. It is the story of a viral infection - the battle for the cell.

This film reveals the exquisite machinery of the human cell system from within the inner world of the cell itself - from the frenetic membrane surface that acts as a security system for everything passing in and out of the cell, the dynamic highways that transport cargo across the cell and the remarkable turbines that power the whole cellular world to the amazing nucleus housing DNA and the construction of thousands of different proteins all with unique tasks. The virus intends to commandeer this system to one selfish end: to make more viruses. And they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.

Exploring the very latest ideas about the evolution of life on earth and the bio-chemical processes at the heart of every one of us, and revealing a world smaller than it is possible to comprehend, in a story large enough to fill the biggest imaginations.

#Singapore scientists develop genome-wide mutation hunting computational software for genomic medicine #science

#Singapore scientists develop genome-wide mutation hunting computational software for genomic medicine #science | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it

Phen-Gen is the first computer analysis software that cross-references a patient’s symptoms and a person’s genome sequence, to better aid doctors in diagnosing diseases. The software was created by a team of scientists at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), led by Dr. Pauline Ng. Results from the research were published in the prestigious journal Nature Methods on 4th August 2014.
 
Phen-Gen can detect faulty genes responsible for diseases by up to 88 per cent, yielding results in 15 to 30 minutes. It has been proven to be faster and more efficient compared to current methods analysing genomes for this purpose.
 
One area that Dr Ng is currently working on is incorporating the Phen-Gen technique in the diagnosis of rare diseases. Rare diseases are often hard to diagnose based on symptoms alone. By using Phen-Gen, doctors are able to make a more accurate diagnosis based on a patient’s unique genetic code.
 
Dr Ng’s team is working with doctors in local and international hospitals to incorporate Phen-Gen to diagnose patients with rare disorders.  “We aim to translate scientific research to help people directly,” said senior author Pauline Ng. “To this end, GIS has created a programme to help diagnose patients with rare disorders. Phen-Gen works with both exome and whole genome sequencing data. It is the first algorithm to leverage disease symptoms and give genome-wide predictions.”
 
Most rare diseases, such as those that affect neurological, brain or cardiac development, manifest early in life. “There is little else more satisfying than the opportunity to help a sick patient, and through our research at GIS, we want others in the world to benefit as well,” said first author Dr. Asif Javed. “The program is also downloadable online for those who prefer to keep their DNA information private.”
 
The Executive Director of the GIS, Prof. Ng Huck Hui, commented “As we enter the genomics era with more powerful Next-Generation Sequencing technologies that can analyse the human genomes at a reduced cost, data analytics becomes a bottleneck. Dr. Pauline Ng’s group has taken on this exciting challenge to develop analytics capabilities. In partnership with the Singapore hospitals, the GIS has initiated a research project on sequencing patients with undiagnosed conditions or congenital disorders. The Phen-Gen method is timely as it fills an urgent gap in hospitals for accurate diagnosis of rare diseases.”
