A step toward the $1,000 personal genome using readily available lab equipment
...ore accurate and less costly than a commercial DNA decoding
technology reported earlier this week. The Church group's technology is based on converting a widely available and relatively inexpensive microscope with a digital camera for use in a rapid automated sequencing process that does not involve the much...
Cyberkinetics, Case to develop system to help restore extremity function
...ators from both teams have extensive experience in decoding
cortical signals into multidimensional movement commands for real-time control of FES systems, computers, and robotic devices in experiments using monkeys. Together, the team has the potential to advance cortical interfaces into the world of restorat...
Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells
...ear a symphony. Humans may rely on the same smell decoding
system, because mice and men have similar brain structures for scent, including an olfactory bulb, the researchers said. "We wanted to understand how the brain puts together scent signals to make an odor picture. We discovered the whole is the sum o...
New dyslexia theory blames 'noise'

of symbols). What is known is that dyslexia affects millions of children, with estimates of its incidence ranging from 5 to 15 percent. Sperling, who conducted her research as a doctoral student at USC, said the new findings point to a deeper...
Loss of a universal tRNA feature reported
...e tRNAHis. tRNAs are the molecules responsible for decoding
sequence information specified by messenger RNA molecules, information which is ultimately encoded by the DNA template. tRNAHis is the specific tRNA that assists in incorporating the amino acid histidine into new proteins. Histidine residues make e...
