Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...part of nine studies in Europe and Australia. They arrived at 486 patients who had had multiple blood tests documenting viral loads after infection and before they started receiving antiretroviral treatment. The three polymorphisms were identified after all the blood samples of the selected patients were sc...

Climate change was the cause of Neanderthal extinction in the Iberian Peninsula

...d to climate changes before the first Homo Sapiens arrived in the Iberian Peninsula. Cold, arid and highly variable climate was the least favourable weather for Neanderthals and 24,000 years ago they had to face the worst weather conditions in the last 250,000 years. The most important about these data is...

DNA repair proteins monitored at double-strand break

...e researchers could determine when repair proteins arrived at or around the DNA break and evaluate its repair—even when particular proteins shifted away from the break to make room for others. A report on this work appears in the May 7 online issue of "Nature Cell Biology." The findings are important b...

...ntext shows only its current status and not how it arrived at that place." For instance, the splicing process can change even from day to day as an animal develops, he said, adding that extracting cells and watching them in a culture cannot convey all of these transient changes. Moreover, different cel...

Uncovering DNA's 'sweet' secret

...in a simmering, primordial stew. Just how nature arrived at this molecule and its sister molecule, RNA,remains one of the greatest - and potentially unsolvable - scientific mysteries. But Vanderbilt biochemist Martin Egli, Ph.D., isn't content to simplystudy these molecules as they are. He wants to know ...

'GreeneChip' -- New diagnostic tool that rapidly and accurately identifies multiple pathogens
