Breakthrough in understanding type-2 diabetes as key genes identified
...search shows that this technology can generate big leaps
forward. The task now is to study the genes identified in our work more intensively, to understand more fully the disease processes involved, devise therapies for those affected and to try to prevent future cases," he added. ...
NHGRI aims to make DNA sequencing faster, more cost effective
...gies fulfill their promise and achieve the quantum leaps
that are needed to take DNA sequencing to the next level." "$1,000 Genome" Grants NHGRI's "Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies" grants have as their goal the development of breakthrough technologies that will enable a human-sized genom...
Study provides insight into cellular defenses against genetic mutation
... For two decades, researchers have made intuitive leaps
in the understanding how NMD works with translation, the second phase of gene expression where RNAs direct the building of proteins. From studying genetic diseases, Maquat theorized four years ago that there must be two types of translation. An ear...
What comes first…the chicken, the egg, or the bad attitude?
...icient, the broiler industry could move forward in leaps
and bounds. As a result of their findings, Robinson, Renema and Zuidhof have broadened their research focus to include exploration of links between hen reproductive attitude and broiler quality. Their work will contribute to the production of high-q...
New online portal merges vast data on Gulf of Maine ecosystem
...searchers. Although research capacity has grown by leaps
and bounds as a result of computer and sensor technology, valuable collections of biological, oceanographic and geologic data from public and private institutions have, in large part, remained in isolation from each other. For the first time, the Dyn...
