From plants, the team extracts a better way to see what our genes are doing

Picture credits: Alexandra Angelich University of Virginia Medical School scientists have developed a better way to determine what our genes do. This allows scientists to better study the genetic causes of disease and to more efficiently determine whether new drugs act on the intended target as needed. The researchers believe that the new tool could revolutionize the study of biological …

Neanderthal, Denisovan DNA Found Near Autism Genes in Modern Humans

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of Use. One of the most interesting questions of hominin evolution is how much of our vanished cousins ​​remains in us. Between 1-4 percent of the modern human genome is derived from Neanderthals everywhere but sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, between 4-6 percent of the modern Melanesian genome …

one-hit wonder? The revolutionary CRISPR machine can handle hundreds of genes simultaneously – RT World News

The revolutionary CRISPR gene processing machine has undergone an incredible upgrade to handle "tens or even hundreds of genes" simultaneously, allowing scientists to reprogram entire gene networks in one fell swoop. In the past, the CRISPR-Cas technique could, at best, modify only a handful of genes at the same time, usually managing only one at a time. However, new research …

Buried genes may explain why humans are the "fat primate"

It's no secret that we humans tend to put a bit more padding on our bones compared to our closest living primate relatives. Even without a diet with donuts and Netflix, evolution has left bodies that hoard fat. An analysis of adipose tissue from various primates has revealed that some of these are due to subtle differences in the way …

Virus genes help determine if pea aphids get their wings

Jennifer Brisson, a professor of biology at the University of Rochester, and her former postdoctoral fellow Benjamin Parker discovered genes that affect whether aphids are wingless (aphids left) or winged offspring (aphid right) in response to repression in their own Surroundings. Credit: University of Rochester / Omid Saleh Ziabari Many features of an organism are influenced by clues from the …

More human babies edited by CRISPR genes may be on their way

The first genetically modified human babies were born in 2018. Science Photo Library / Getty A Russian molecular biologist plans to process human embryos with the unbelievably powerful gene editing tool CRISPR in a manner similar to the Chinese researcher He Jiankui. He gained notoriety in November of last year, after it became known that his team had worked on …
