Researchers predict infinite genomes

...we'll never know--the extent of its diversity." To interpret this infinite view of microbial genomes, Tettelin and colleagues propose describing a species by its "pan-genome": the sum of a core genome, containing genes present in all strains, and a dispensable genome, with genes absent from one or more strains...

Questionnaire identifies women at risk of inherited breast or ovarian cancer

...take thorough family histories and then accurately interpret that information, something that can be difficult since many nuances can determine risk," says Kevin Hughes, MD, of the MGH Surgical Oncology Division, the study's senior author. "In addition, family history can change over time if a patient's relat...

Secrets of the deep may hold key to life on other planets

...Little. "Until we know more it's very difficult to interpret the fossil record we already have." Pieces of hydrothermal animals have already been placed in titanium mesh cages at hydrothermal vent sites 3.5km down in the ocean. Dr Little will return to these sites in the East Pacific Rise off the coast of Sout...

Overfishing in inland waters reduces biodiversity and threatens health

...e decreased. But catch statistics are difficult to interpret for inland species because they may exclude recreational and illegal fisheries, and because landings are dispersed. Moreover, overfishing may not immediately cause declines in the total catchand its weight may even transiently increase. Overfishing l...

File compression can expand mammography's power

Grant allows ASU archaeologist to study how environment influences evolution

...very hard, but when you bring everyone together to interpret the same information, it gives you a lot more than if there was just that one specialist working on it." Researchers agree that modern humans evolved in Africa, but little is known about the ancient ecology at the time. Scientists know that environme...

Chemical signaling helps regulate sensory map formation in the brain

... to their target, the structures in the brain that interpret information from the eyes. "Without an orderly and faithful connection," said Zou, "information from the eyes could not be properly deciphered by the brain." "Topographic maps are a very common wiring strategy in our brains," he said. Similar syste...

It also promises to lead to accurate models of how other organisms, including animals, develop from primordial stem cells. "This was a great example of the synergy you can have between biology and computer sc...

Biodesign and TGen form joint Center for Systems and Computational Biology
