Uniform language for describing genes of pathogenic and beneficial microbes

...s. The unified language under development in this effort is called The Gene Ontology (GO). The new terms added to the GO will significantly bolster what is already a powerful tool for scientists to compare the functions of genes and proteins in a wide range of disease-related organisms. The ongoing initia...

NIDA study identifies genes that might help some people abstain from smoking

.... While many of the genes identified through this effort make sense because of their role in supporting new neural connections in the brain, more research is now needed to understand the actual mechanisms through which they may increase or reduce the rates of successful quitting. Dr. Uhl says he and h...

Rapid response was crucial to containing the 1918 flu pandemic

... The historical analyses are part of an ongoing effort called the Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS), which is supported by NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
