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...

Researchers develop new method to help find deadly malaria parasite's Achilles heel

... and noisy in the same way or not, we can say with confidence that this particular stage of Plasmodium is different from the other organisms we've examined so far. 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

... types of data can be combined to render increased confidence levels of the assembly. This physical mapping technology is simple to implement and is relatively inexpensive. It is likely to have significant commercial impact through disease-related genetics studies, such as cancer and autism. In addition, it...
