Whole-genome study at Johns Hopkins reveals a new gene associated with abnormal heart rhythm

...ed studies, about 1800 American adults of European ancestry from the Framingham Heart Study of Framingham, Mass., and about 6,700 German adults from the KORA-gen study of Augsburg, Germany. The research team then searched for any specific DNA sequences that showed up more frequently in people who have longe...

World Trade Center identifications pushed forensic DNA technology

...mitochondrial DNA is not unique -- entire maternal ancestry lines share the same mtDNA -- it, along with STR, could help in identification. SNPs, or single nucleotide polymorphisms, are genetic variations that occur at a single DNA location. While standard practice requires only 13 STRs to identify an indiv...
