Identified main genetic variants involved in response to HIV

...tions affecting only one nucleotide or base of the genomic sequence. Despite humans sharing 99.9% of the genome sequence, there are still 3 million genetic variations –which make us different from one another– 90% of which are due to SNPs. Hence, a good knowledge of these variations is highly valuable for th...

New findings challenge established views on human genome

...and correlation of these signatures with different genomic functions. Deeper understanding of how DNA replication is coordinated by modifications in histones. “Teamwork was essential to the success of this effort. No single experimental approach can be used to identify all functional elements in th...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...'s end-caps; they help prevent the accumulation of genomic damage. Both heterochromatin and euchromatin are sequenced using a method called whole-genome shotgun sequencing. Celniker says, "We grind up whole flies and produce libraries of DNA fragments of two sizes, some that are 2 kilobases long" -- a ki...

Human genetic 'deserts' are teeming with significant life

...rofessor Reymond. “They increase the size of the genomic regions that might harbour disease-causing mutations, and they could impair cloning strategies that try to find genes implicated in these pathologies.” They also suggest that extra caution should be used when associating a genetic phenotype with a...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...ility of this tool should revolutionise functional genomic studies in clostridia." This remarkable, stable genome demonstrates the wide range of strategies used by bacteria to enhance their chances of survival. For the Clostridia, these range from the approach used by Cdiff — long-term interaction with ho...

Researchers identify gene involved in dog size

...or influence on stature in dogs. Based on their genomic analysis, the researchers also concluded that the small size trait emerged relatively early in the history of domestic dogs. They hypothesize that small size may have facilitated the rapid diversification among domestic dog breeds by making it easier...

Analysis of rhesus monkey genome uncovers genetic differences with humans, chimps

...omedically important traits in rhesus. The rhesus genomic DNA samples used for these studies were contributed by the California NPRC, Oregon NPRC, Southwest NPRC and Yerkes NPRC. This advance in macaque genetics will enhance the use of macaques for the study of genetic diseases of man. ...
