Man and mouse share genome structures

...HOX regions, we see huge stretches of genome, many thousands of base pairs in length, that are completely covered by tags." The researchers speculate that these unique chromatin structures could be activating sets of HOX genes for specific developmental programs. This global activation may have implications f...

...may therefore repeat episodically over hundreds of thousands of years as abyssal hills are uplifted and spread away from the mid-ocean ridge crest. Haymon compared the subsurface microbes they found to those living in hot springs such as those at Yellowstone National Park. ...

New, automated tool successfully classifies and relates proteins in unprecedented way

...g of proteins inside cellimages, we also can study thousands of images fast, objectively andwithout error," Murphy said.Murphy's tool has two key components. One is a set of subcellularlocation features (SLFs) that describe a protein's location in a cellimage. SLFs measure both simple and complex aspects of pr...

Using natural replicating enzymes, the DNA is tagged with four fluorescent dyes, each corresponding to a particular nucleotide. This tagging process, called Sanger sequencing, results in smaller DNA fragments, which are then separated...
