Whole genome fine map of rice completed

...ing the theoretical basis for improving output and selecting better strains of agriculture crops. The current publication provided a completed fine map for the paternal strain¡°93-11¡± (Indica), and its comparison with the genome sequence of the Japonica. It is reported that BGI will finish whole genome assem...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

... presents an entropy-based iterative algorithm for selecting genes from microarray data that are able to classify various cancer sub-types with high accuracy. In addition, the feature set obtained is very compact, that is, the redundancy between genes is reduced to a large extent. This implies that classifiers...

'Jumping genes' contribute to the uniqueness of individual brains

...iversity with the help of mobile elements and then selecting for the fittest is restricted to the brain and leaves other organs unaffected. "You wouldn't want that added element of individuality in your heart," he adds. Precursor cells in the embryonic brain, which mature into neurons, look and act more or le...

NHGRI Selects 13 More Organisms for Genome Sequencing

In a new study appearing in the June 1 print issue of The Journal of Clinical Investigation, Nicholas Restifo and colleagues identified which cells are optimal for treating large, vascularized...

Brain activity related to processing faces is similar in people with, without autism

"In other words, these tasks require high levels of cognitive control," Belger said. "We wanted to find out if these executive functions of particular brain regions that are cr...

Implantable pumps extend lives of patients too sick for transplant

...pread destination therapy. The first challenge is selecting appropriate patients, which is crucial, since the patients most likely to survive would be those who are quite sick, but not too sick to be beyond help. This fine line in determining which patients are optimal will need to be defined by future clinic...

Picking particles faster than one at a time

By concentrating on the highest quality particles, crystallization in silico may need far fewer than hundreds of thousands o...

New peptide antibiotic isolated from American oyster

"This peptide may be helpful in selecting disease-resistant oysters for aquaculture and fisheries and may also allow for the development of a test to monitor oyster health," says Ed Noga, professor at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. "In recent years, a num...

Novel molecular 'signature' marks DNA of embryonic stem cells

...e "gatekeeper." It accomplishes the latter task by selecting which genes to make active or inactive in a cell, based on the nearby chemical tags joined to its backbone. By examining the chromatin in mouse ES cells across the genome, the scientists discovered an unusual pair of overlapping molecular tags in the...
