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.

  • Optogenetic methods restore partial vision in a blind patient

    An international research team has shown that optogenetic therapy has helped to partially regain visual function in a patient with retinitis pigmentosa. This is a milestone towards a gene therapy that could restore vision. Clinical trial results show for the first time that optogenetic methods can p more

  • How chemicals in plastic may cause lower IQ levels

    The chemical bisphenol F (found in plastics) can induce changes in a gene that is vital for neurological development. This discovery was made by researchers at the universities of Uppsala and Karlstad, Sweden. The mechanism could explain why exposure to this chemical during the fetal stage may be co more

  • Espresso, latte or decaf? Genetic code drives your desire for coffee

    Whether you hanker for a hard hit of caffeine or favour the frothiness of a milky cappuccino, your regular coffee order could be telling you more about your cardio health than you think. In a world first study of 390,435 people, University of South Australia researchers found causal genetic evidence 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

  • Innate immune sensor LGP2 is cleaved by the Leader protease of foot-and-mouth disease virus

    by Miguel Rodríguez Pulido, María Teresa Sánchez-Aparicio, Encarnación Martínez-Salas, Adolfo García-Sastre, Francisco Sobrino, Margarita Sáiz The RNA helicase LGP2 (Laboratory of Genetics and Physiology 2) is a non-signaling member of the retinoic acid-inducible gene-I (RIG-I)-like receptors (RL more

  • Beyond epigenetics

    In many complex animals, the germ line is separated from the rest of the body early in development, which led the 19th century biologist August Weismann to conclude that environmentally caused changes in an organism are not inherited. A revelation in recent years, and the focus of Russell Bondurians more

  • Genetics of alternative splicing evolution during sunflower domestication [Evolution]

    Alternative splicing is a form of genetic regulation that enables the production of multiple proteins from a single gene. This study is one of the first to investigate variation in alternative splicing during a major evolutionary transition. We analyzed RNA from wild and domesticated sunflowers to e more
