Genetics

The history of modern genetics started with Gregor Mendel, a czech monk, who researched the characteristics of peas and with this work laid the foundation for an inheritance theory. From these beginnings a field of biology evolves which is today known as genetics.
Classical genetics elucidates phenotypes of hybridization. The molecular basics of inheritance are part of the molecular genetics. Gene regulation is a focus of epigenetics.

  • Enduring cold temperatures alters fat cell epigenetics

    A new study in fat cells has revealed a molecular mechanism that controls how lifestyle choices and the external environment affect gene expression. This mechanism includes potential targets for next-generation drug discovery efforts to treat metabolic diseases including diabetes and obesity. Resear more

  • Night owls have higher risk of dying sooner

    "Night owls" - people who like to stay up late and have trouble dragging themselves out of bed in the morning - have a higher risk of dying sooner than "larks," people who have a natural preference for going to bed early and rise with the sun, according to a new study from Northwestern Medicine and more

What is Epigenetics?

Why your DNA is not your destiny. Molecular biologist Nessa Carey presents an introduction to epigenetics and explains how it shapes life.DNA is a vitally important starting point for life, but it's how it's used by cells and organisms that is really important. Epigenetics is a rapidly moving fi ... more

Multiplexed optogenetic control, using PA- Vav2 and PI-Rac1 in the same cell

Multiplexed optogenetic control, using Photo-inhibitable Vav2 (PA-Vav2) and Photo-inhibitable Rac1 (PI-Rac1) in the same cell.Upon irradiation, area and roundness changed as they did in response to PA-Vav2 alone, but edge dynamics were clearly reduced, unlike response to either PA-Vav2 alone or ... more

The Chemistry of Brussels Sprouts

There’s one vegetable at the Christmas dinner table that’s always bound to elicit strong and contrary opinions: brussels sprouts. Much like marmite, they seem to conjure up a ‘love it or hate it’ sentiment; however, if you fall into the latter camp, there may actually be a chemical and genetic reaso more

The Chemical Structure of DNA

Today’s post crosses over into the realm of biochemistry, with a look at the chemical structure of DNA, and its role in creating proteins in our cells. Of course, it’s not just in humans that DNA is found – it’s present in the cells of every multicellular life form on Earth. This graphic provides an more

A Brief Guide to the Twenty Common Amino Acids

The proteins that make up living organisms are huge molecules, but they’re composed of tinier building blocks, known as amino acids. There are over 500 amino acids found in nature, yet, of these, the human genetic code only directly codes for 20. Every protein in your body is made up of some linked more
