Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...such a way that A binds T and G binds C, forming a double helical structure. Each person's genome consists of a unique ordering of some 3 billion base pairs, and 'DNA sequencing' refers to the process scientists use to read out the order of those nucleotides.

Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

...g cells. Whereas cell membranes are created from a double layer of fatty phospholipid chains, a polymersome is comprised of two layers of synthetic co-polymers. Like a living cell, the polymersome membrane has a hydrophobic core. The study shows that the fluorophores evenly disperse within this core, giving...

Researchers find new genes necessary to make embryo

Measuring Enzymes At End Of Cancer Pathway Predicts Outcome Of Tarceva, Taxol

... on whether CDK2 activity was repressed. They then double checked those findings by "putting CDK2 back," Ueno says. "We found that the effects of Tarceva were reduced when CDK2 was given back to the cells, so this shows us that CDK2 is the real target of Tarceva. "This presents a concept that describes how...

Doing a spin with DNA

If it works for them, some thought, it should work for us; I'm here to tell you it doesn't." Phelan, co-author of the book, "Mean Genes," conduct...

Fluorescing lab worms signal longer life spans

...ng that mutating a single gene in roundworms could double their life span -- the first evidence that the lifespan of an animal could be increased by genetic alteration. Since then, researchers around the world have been tinkering with proteins and genes of C. elegans in attempts to understand more about how...

...1 percent a year in grain yield," he said. "Can we double our genetic gain by doubling our variability?" CIMMYT predicted that within a few years, more than one-half of its advance lines of wheat will trace back to a synthetic wheat. And that's from a project started less than 20 years ago, in a world wher...

Analysis of flower genes reveals the fate of an ancient gene duplication

...these genes are mutated, the plants form so-called double flowers, in which petals and sepals replace stamens and carpels. AG and PLE are very closely related genes, and they clearly have nearly identical function, suggesting that they are derived from the same single gene inherited from a common ancestor....
