Novel technology detects human DNA mutations

...an unknown genotype with a greater than 99 percent confidence threshold and can be used with human DNA obtained from samples as small as a drop of blood. Importantly, the technology eliminates the need for costly, time and labor intensive gene amplification or enzymatic interventions ?two widespread methods cur...

It's this lack of overlap with other species that's surprising." Ideker said the Plasmodium's membrane-protein complexes may be of particular inter...

Study suggests that publicly available genome data may contain small but significant errors
