  • Is the Alzheimer's gene the ring leader or the sidekick?

    The notorious genetic marker of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, ApoE4, may not be a lone wolf. Researchers from USC and the University of Manchester have found that another gene, TOMM40, complicates the picture. Although ApoE4 plays a greater role in some types of aging-related memo more

  • Long, mysterious strips of RNA contribute to low sperm count

    "Infertility affects 10 to 15 percent of couples in the United States, with the vast majority of cases due to unknown causes. Approximately 40 percent of these cases are due to male infertility," said senior author Khalil. Khalil and colleagues have been working to understand genetic mechanisms behi more

  • Small RNA fragments defend the genome when it's 'naked'

    Our genomes are minefields, studded with potentially damaging DNA sequences over which hundreds of thousands of sentries stand guard. These sentries, called epigenetic marks, attach to the double helix at such spots and prevent the underlying DNA sequences from springing into destructive action. Abo more

ENCODE: Encyclopedia of DNA Elements

Ewan Birney of EMBL-EBI, Tim Hubbard of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Roderic Guigo of CRG talk about ENCODE, an international project which revealed that much of what has been called 'junk DNA' in the human genome is actually a massive control panel with millions of switches regulatin ... more

The Mobile Genome: Genetic and Physiological Impacts of Transposable Elements

Transposons are abundant in most genomes and constitute about 50% of the human genome. They are usually considered genomic parasites, the mobilisation of which can cause harmful genetic mutations.Various mechanisms have evolved throughout the tree of life to defend genomes from the deleterious effec

3rd DNA Replication/Repair Structures and Cancer Conference

The remarkable stability of the human genome is lost in cancer cells due to the failure of efficient and accurate repair in the context of oncogene-induced replication stress and elevated transcription. DNA replication is furthermore emerging as a surprisingly fragile and complex process requiring f
