A New Computational Method That Reveals Genetic Patterns

The study find thata new computational method that reveals genetic patterns in the massive jumble of individual cells in the body. The discovery, published in the journal eLife, will be useful in discerning patterns of gene expression across many kinds of disease, including cancer. Therefore Scientists worked out the formulation by testing tissue taken from the…

The Genetic Factors That Put People At Risk For PTSD

The rehearses find that the In addition to providing valuable information on genetic factors that may put people at risk for PTSD, the study also demonstrates “the immediate utility of the MVP sample for disorders prevalent in U.S. veterans,” say the researchers. The results appear online J, in the journal Nature Neuroscience. PTSD is usually…

CRISPR Tool Enhances RNA Editing

CRISPR-based tools helped revolutionize the ability to target genetic mutations linked to disease development. Such tools focus on using the enzymes Cas9 and Cas12 to target DNA, and Cas13 to target RNA. Now, scientists used a new CRISPR platform that expands the capabilities of RNA editing. A team of scientists at the McGovern Institute for Brain…

Genetic Mutations Link Rare Skin Disorder

Now researchers led by Jouni Uitto, MD, PhD, Professor of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology at Thomas Jefferson University report mutations in a gene called ABHD5 involved in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The finding provides a genetic basis for the condition. The scientists made the discovery not by studying the liver; but the skin. Dr. Uitto and…

Genome Sequencing Transform Salmonella Detection

The researches find that the most common organisms responsible for symptomatic and serious food poisoning. Methods to detect this have evolved from crude microscopic identification to serotype detection. Now scientists at Cornell University and the Mars Global Food Safety Center (GFSC), Beijing report that they can use high-resolution whole genome sequencing technology to safely and consistently…

Cannabidiol Derived Drugs And Genetic Testing

The researches find that the It can start with a vacant stare, what appear to be muscle twitches or a full-blown seizure. But no matter how it begins, any time a child is diagnosed with epilepsy is often a frightening time for families. About 470,000 children are living with epilepsyin the U.S. While there are over…

Genetic Traits That Result From Their Successful Adaptation

The study find that the Geographically isolated populations often develop unique genetic traits that result from their successful adaptation to specific environments. Unfortunately, these adaptations sometimes predispose them to certain health issues if the environment is change. The genetic background of these populations are often poorly understood because they live far from scientific research centres.…

Identify Genes Linked To Death From Sepsis

The study find that the Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the body’s immune response to infection spirals out of control. Bacteria in the bloodstream trigger immune cells to release powerful molecules called cytokines to quickly activate the body’s defenses. Sometimes the response goes overboard, creating a so-called “cytokine storm” that leaves people…

Gene Modulation Goes Wireless Hacking The “Boss Gene”

The researches find that the successfully used technology to wirelessly tweak the functioning of a gene FGFR1. This gene is vital in the growth of embryos into adults. Their experiments were successful in the lab grown brain tissues and shows potential in therapeutics. Therefore The study title; “Interfaces: Bridging Biological Networks With the Electronic Digital…

Overturned Using DNA, Family Tree Evidence

The researches find that the a decades-old murder he did not commit, using evidence based on DNA and a genetic family tree, the first such result using a revolutionary investigative technique. Christopher Tapp, 43, had served 20 of his 30-year sentence for the 1996 rape and murder of Angie Dodge. On Wednesday; a court in…

Protect Your DNA For Big Health Benefits

The researches find that the Packed inside every cell is your DNA and its strands of chromosomes. Chromosomes are protected, top and bottom, by sections called telomeres. The health of these “end caps” is crucial to your health and longevity. If they become damaged, meaning shortened, because of poor lifestyle choices such as a bad…

Genetic Contribution To Destructibility Helps Explain Procrastination

The researches find that the using a combination of questionnaires and genetic testing, German researchers have found that with increasing dopamine in the brain, women tended to show greater tendencies to procrastinate. Therefore Procrastination is define as voluntarily putting off certain goal-oriented activities. People who do things at once rather than putting them off show…
