...Moreover, the relative prevalence of these two SNP profiles
appears to vary between the Western and the Northern/Eastern Finns and subgroups of the Saami. These results support the idea that two separate groups settled Finland and point to shared genetic structure between the Finns and the Saami....

Gene chips bring new order to lung cancer types, could yield sharper diagnoses, better drugs
...x mathematical analyses, the tumor samples genetic profiles
can be compared side-by-side in a visual display. Those with similar genetic off-on patterns are assigned to similar categories. In general, the major categories of lung cancers defined by the gene analysis corresponded to the traditional pathologic...

...locations between widely spaced seismic-reflection profiles
and sparse bedrock exposures indicated by geologic mapping. Thus mapped, we relate the active strand of the Seattle fault zone to the 1997 earthquake and to a young topographic scarp observed on Bainbridge Island. The aeromagnetic data confirm the ex...
USF presents new research on hyperlipidemic children
...ree-day food records were obtained and lipoprotein profiles
were measured. Serum was assayed for PON1 activity and DNA was isolated for PON1 genotyping. PCR primers previously characterized for amplification of the PON1 gene polymorphism were synthesized and amplifications were performed. Plasma PON1 activ...
Darwin's Time Machine: Scientists begin predicting evolution's next step
...we can observe significant increases in resistance profiles
in just a decade," says Miriam Barlow, a doctoral student in Hall's laboratory. "This provides the unique opportunity to actually observe the process of evolution as it happens." The results matched well. Certain mutations developed in the lab improv...
