Human Genome Project Achieves Technological Triumph

...owing them to "read" each gene. "Mapping the human genome has been compared with putting a man on the moon, but I believe it is more than that," said Dr. Michael Dexter, the director of the Wellcome Trust, which funded the British part of the Human Genome Project. "This is the outstanding achievement not on...

PCR emerging as a promising technique for Diagnosing Urinary Tuberculosis

...litating rapid amplification of small amounts of a genome sequence, Dr Narmada P Gupta told the Millennium International Urology Congress in India. Presence of even one bacteria can be detected by the PCR technique, he said, elaborating on the advances in genitourinary tuberculosis. However, in spite of...

Controversial deal on public access of the human genome map

Human gene number increases

...d 30,000, the gene number estimated from the human genome sequence seemed scanty compared with the mustard weeds' (25,000) and the fruitfly's (13,000). Michael Cooke and colleagues at the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation in San Diego, California compared the two gene sets and found tha...

What we can learn from dogs?

...to human health. What's more, the study of the dog genome and - maybe - the chimpanzee genome, may be able to pinpoint the handful of genes that could be linked to uniquely human diseases. Dogs are particularly useful to study because they share our environment, and they have a similar age and body size r...

The completion of the human genome project, and developments in understanding of diseases like anthrax and botulism, will help in developing tests and vaccines that will protect society against bioterrorist attacks - as well as natural epidemics.// The annual meeting of the American ...

Chlamydia toxin- a secret killer

The genome of the bacterium Chlamydia uncovers a toxin that's like that produced by other pathogens, so opening up the way to new treatments. The bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis is the cause of silent infections that can lead to blindness and gynaecological con...

Genes for Vision discovered

...h a huge genetic database from the mouse and human genome project, the researchers identified approximately 300 photoreceptor genes - five times the number that were previously known. Two hundred and sixty four of these were newly identified genes. Of these, 241 had homologs in humans. “This makes photore...

Syphilis uncovered

...nstock, who led the gene mapping study, said: "The genome sequence represents an encyclopedia of information on this elusive bacterium."We can now figure out ways to disarm its defences through vaccines, identify it quickly through new diagnostic tests and eliminate it with specific, targeted antibiotics."...

Mutating viruses helps produce antibodies

...ller said. They are beginning to examine the human genome for the genetic signatures of this mechanism, as well as yeast and fruit flies. The details of how this mutation process works still are unclear, but unexpectedly it seems to involve an enzyme tied to deadly retroviruses, such as HIV, known as rever...
