Genome


The release of drafts of the human genome in 2001 was a landmark achievement1,2. Scientists could, for the first time, study long stretches of each human chromosome, base by base. As such, researchers could begin to understand how individual genes were ordered, and how the surrounding non-protein-coding DNA was structured and organized. Despite this amazing …

Researchers from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in collaboration with colleagues from Belgium take a step in the development of genome editing technology. Currently, it is possible to deliver genetic material of different sizes and structures to organs and tissues. This is the key to eliminating DNA defects and treating more patients. The …

Might a new technological development of researchers from Tel Aviv University soon revolutionize the dairy products we consume? The initiators of the development believe that in the not-too-distant future we will be able to buy dairy products in the supermarket that are identical in taste and color to the ordinary dairy products that we consume …

A novel PTA technology captures more than 95% of the genomes of single cells, providing more uniform, accurate, and reproducible single-cell analysis data. On Dec. 1, 2020, BioSkryb, a developer of genomic amplification technologies, reported the release of foundational data demonstrating that primary template-directed amplification (PTA) has a superior ability to accurately and uniformly amplify …

Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc.Oct 22 2020 Genome editing of human embryos represents one of the most contentious potential scientific applications today. But what if geneticists could sidestep the controversy by editing sperm and eggs instead? According to a new paper co-written by a University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign legal expert who studies the ethical …

Gene editing technologies developed in the past decade have proven to be extraordinarily powerful and hold the potential to someday cure or prevent a range of diseases. While applications that introduce edits in somatic cells are being used in the clinic, changes that could be transmitted to subsequent generations (heritable edits) raise additional technical, ethical …

A team of researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have developed an algorithm through machine learning that helps predict sites of DNA methylation – a process that can change the activity of DNA without changing its overall structure – and could identify disease-causing mechanisms that would otherwise be …

BEIJING (Reuters) – China has released genome sequencing data for the coronavirus responsible for a recent outbreak in Beijing, with officials saying on Friday it identified a European strain based on preliminary studies. China, which had been under pressure to make the data public sooner rather than later as COVID-19 cases mount in the country’s …
