Mutating the entire genome

...ly than other methods can. That makes it easier to find out what defects or diseases arise due to such mutations, and thus what the DNA does normally. They devised a much more efficient method for mixing and recombining pieces of two chromosomes, making it easier to breed mice with human cancers. Suc...

Children born after PGD as healthy as those born after conventional IVF treatment

...says Professor Liebaers, but we were encouraged to find that the major malformation rate was only 3.6%, or no higher than that which is found in children born after conventional IVF and ICSI. The average length of the pregnancies of singleton births was 38.8 weeks and the mean birthweight 3.268 kg, comp...

NSF funding to advance research on interplay between biology and society

Scientists will find new ways of understanding the interactions of the biological sciences with society, as a result of awards from the National Science Foundation's (NSF) directorates for biological sciences and for social, behavioral, and economic sciences. The award...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...marine phytoplankton. Hay suspects scientists may find other examples of complex defensive strategies when they look more closely at other single-celled organisms. The response of Phaeocystis could be important to scientists studying climate change because the predator that ultimately consumes the phyt...

CSHL scientists successfully target tumor microenvironment to stop cancer growth

... The CSHL research posits that those who did not find evidence of EPCs in tumors were probably looking for them in later stages of tumor progression when EPCs are diluted by host endothelial cells. The new results show that EPCs are only present in the earliest stages of tumor progression, before the fo...

On the defense: Conserved features of plant innate immunity

...ling pathway in any organism. We are continuing to find commonality between animal and plant innate immunity at the level of both receptors and signalling intermediates; the complex we describe, essential for plant innate immunity, may be another example of this."...

UVa-led team uncovers important secret in gene replication

... are all anxious because later this summer we will find out if we will receive the money to study the remaining the 99 percent of the human genome. If the next portion goes unfunded, it would be one the biggest missed opportunities in biology, Dutta says. We used the one percent of the genome as a trial...

UCR biologists unravel the genetic secrets of black widow spider silk

...ies suggest that synthetically-produced silk might find applications as diverse as lightweight super-strong body armor, components of medical devices and high-tech athletic attire. The researchers Associate Professor of Biology Cheryl Hayashi, postdoctoral researchers Nadia Ayoub and Jessica Garb, and ...

Daddies' girls choose men just like their fathers

The study, supported in part by the Economic and Social Research Council and The Royal Society, helps shed further light on how we choose partners and the impact of a parents role in this process, which until recently researchers believ...

Undergraduate research shows leaderless honeybee organizing

...ng worker bees perform to tell other bees where to find a food source, the vibration signal appears to be a more general, multi-purpose form of communication. Schneider has concluded that this signal, which consists of one bee grabbing another bee (worker or queen) and then vibrating its body, does not co...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...argetable target. We can detect it, but we need to find a better way to turn it back on. No drugs are designed to deal with a gene thats turned off. But its a straightforward extension of current therapies that target genes that are turned on, says lead study author David Reisman, M.D., Ph.D., assistant p...

Researchers shed light on shrinking of chromosomes

...enberg at EMBL looked at living mammalian cells to find out how and when chromosomes shorten during cell division. Condensation begins early, when the cell starts preparing for division, and the chromosomes become shorter and shorter until they are about to separate and migrate towards the poles of the ce...

Identification of genetic risk factor for coeliac disease promises improved treatment

Sarah Sleet, Chief Executive of Coeliac UK said: This research heralds an important breakthrough in understanding better who is likely to develop coeliac disease. Ar...

Turning the tables in chemistry

Many students find introductory science, and chemistry in particular, both difficult and dull the way it is conventionally taught at the college level, discouraging many potential scientists before they ever have the chance to get hooked on science. Anyone who teach...

Dietary preferences and patterns may be linked to genes

People with the CC genotype, however, did have greater amounts of small HDL cholesterol particles, as compared ...
