Surprising findings reported about iron overload

...Celtic origins, with some counties reporting Irish ancestry in 17 percent of the population. "The hemochromatosis C282Y mutation is thought to have occurred among Celtic or Scandinavian populations 1,500-3,000 years ago, and the mutation may have helped them survive iron-poor diets." Hemochromatosis or iron ...

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.

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...

World's largest flower evolved from family of much tinier blooms

...cal tree of life in the past 25 years have tracked ancestry using molecular markers in genes governing photosynthesis. Rafflesia is a non-photosynthetic parasite, and those genes have apparently been abandoned, meaning that to determine its lineage we had to look at other parts of the plant's genome." Davis...
