Sea urchin genome is a biology boon and a computational feat

... After identifying 23,300 genes made from 814 million letters of DNA code taken from Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, the California purple urchin, an international science team has found that humans share 7,077 genes with urchins. This makes the spiny, spineless creature a closer genetic...

Decoded sea urchin genome shows surprising relationship to man

... The genome of a male California purple sea urchin was sequenced, and it contained over 814 million letters, spelling out 23,300 genes. Nearly 10,000 of the genes were scrutinized by an international consortium of 240 scientists from over 70 institutions in 11 countries. The high quality "draft" sequence covers ove...

Sea urchins' unexpectedly diverse 'innate' immune capability points to new research avenue

Inside that seemingly docile sea urchin there's a surprisingly active innate immune system, probably utilizing previously unrecognized immune mechanisms, that may also actively function in vertebrates, including humans, according to researchers at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C....... "Discovering this capability goes completely against the long-accepted paradigm that the innate...

How the sea urchin grows new spines

The sea urchin's tough, brittle spines are an engineering wonder. Composed of a single crystal from base to needle-sharp tip, they grow back within a few days after being broken off. Now, a team of scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science has shown how they do it.... ...While many crystals grow from component atoms or molecules that are dissolved in liquid, sugar and salt being the most f...
