For salmonella detection, genomic tool emerges as a key


The world's food supply will become safer as the food industry shifts to high-resolution, whole-genome sequencing - which examines the full DNA of a given organism all at once. This move to make sequencing ubiquitous will lead to the consistently reliable detection of salmonella. A paper ...

Long live Nemo! – New animal model in aging research?


The colorful Clownfish lives longer than 20 years in the Aquarium. Researchers of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy, in collaboration with the Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) in Jena, Germany, have investigated the genetics behind the longevity of Clownfish. By sequencing the genome ...

Decoding Lil BUB: Crowdfunded project reveals genome of internet celebrity cat


Lil BUB has drawn millions of followers across the internet for her cute appearance. Behind the celebrity cat’s unique features is a combination of two rare genetic variants, three molecular biologists from Germany and the US report. The results of their crowdfunded project “LilBUBome” are now ...


Mapping oesophageal cancer genes leads to new drug targets


Mutations that cause oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) have been mapped in unprecedented detail - unveiling that more than half could be targeted by drugs currently in trials for other cancer types. This research could help stratify oesophageal cancer patients to give them more personalised ...

Genetic predisposition for leprosy identified in Europeans

New insights into historical epidemics and their possible effects on current inflammatory diseases


Leprosy was widespread until the late Middle Ages. In the sixteenth century, the contagious disease disappeared almost entirely from Europe, even before antibiotics for medical treatment had been discovered. The genetic composition of the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae did not change considerably ...

Production of protein pharmaceuticals with yeast


It took several years, but a research team headed by Professor Jens Nielsen at Chalmers University of Technology has finally succeeded in mapping out the complex metabolism of yeast cells. The breakthrough, recently published in an article in Nature Communications, means a huge step forward in ...


Virtual reality tool developed to untangle genes


Researchers from Oxford have been using virtual reality software to compile genetic data to create models which explain how genes are controlled within their natural chromosomal environments. The team from the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) have been working in ...

First Detailed Decoding of Complex Finger Millet Genome

New strategy for genome sequencing and mapping


Finger millet has two important properties: The grain is rich in important minerals and resistant towards drought and heat. Thanks to a novel combination of state-of-the-art technologies, researchers at the University of Zurich were able to decode the large and extremely complex genome of finger ...

Rare genetic disorders: new approach uses RNA in search for genetic triggers


In about half of all patients with rare hereditary disorders, it is still unclear what exact position of the genome is responsible for their condition. One reason for this is the enormous quantity of information encoded in human genes. Scientists from the fields of informatics and medicine have ...
