Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...s throughout the human genome to provide a clearer picture of how life works and ultimately allow better clinical management of patients,” said Dr. Dietrich Stephan, Director of TGen’s Neurogenomics Division and the paper’s senior author, “These new, robust tools may eventually allow us to improve our abilit...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

... anti-malarial drug resistance genes is painting a picture of how the parasite escapes destruction by most of the agents now used against it, he said., When a malaria parasite is transmitted through a mosquito bite, the mosquito injects the parasite into skin or blood, which then travels to the liver wi...

Ancient DNA traces the woolly mammoth's disappearance

...n combination with the results on other species, a picture is emerging of extinction not as a sudden event at the end of the last ice age, but as a piecemeal process over tens of thousands of years involving progressive loss of genetic diversity,” said Dr. Ian Barnes, of Royal Holloway, University of London....

Dual-imaging technique useful before -- and during -- brain surgery

... “We can essentially show patients a color-coded picture of their brain and explain to them where their tumor is in relation to areas that control critical functions like expressive speech, movement and vision,” says Leach. “This can help alleviate the patient’s apprehension and help explain what will happ...

"If we're right, it means you can't rely on bipedalism to tell whether you're looking at a human or other ape ancestor. ...

Protein enables discovery of quantum effect in photosynthesis

...and inaccurate," said Fleming. "It gives the wrong picture of how the process actually works, and misses a crucial aspect of the reason for the wonderful efficiency." The taco shell is a sort of "middleman" in the antenna system, sandwiched in between a larger antenna and a molecule called the Reaction Ce...

DOE JGI sets 'gold standard' for metagenomic data analysis

...e enough sequence from each to capture an accurate picture of the entire community, so you only get a glimpse of the identities of multiple genomes. All the publications to date have made the assumption that these tools will work as efficiently for metagenomes, "but we really didn't know." Nikos Kyrpides,...

Decoding protein structures helps illuminate cause of diabetes
