Scientists find trigger to decode the genome

17-06-2014

Scientists from The University of Manchester have identified an important trigger that dictates how cells change their identity and gain specialised functions. And the research, published in Cell Reports, has brought them a step closer to being able to decode the genome. The scientists have found ...

Stowers team reports genome-wide analysis of genes that drive cell division in a multicellular organism

04-04-2014

In textbooks, the grand-finale of cell division is the tug-of-war fought inside dividing cells as duplicated pairs of chromosomes get dragged in opposite directions into daughter cells. This process, called mitosis, is visually stunning to observe under a microscope. Equally stunning to cell ...

Tracing how the embryo takes over

07-03-2014

Embryonic development is initially controlled by maternal genetic information stored in the egg. LMU researchers now describe a methodology that allows the succeeding activation of the zygotic genome to be mapped at high resolution. In multicellular organisms, the earliest steps in embryonic ...

New sequencing tools give up close look at yeast evolution

23-01-2014

The baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been associated with human activities for thousands of years, being the primary biological agent in baking, brewing, winemaking and other fermentation processes. It is also one of the most important model organisms in molecular biology and genetics ...

Neandertal genome project reaches its goal

High-quality Neandertal genome provides novel insights into human origins

20-12-2013

An international research team led by Kay Prüfer and Svante Pääbo of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, has determined a high-quality genome sequence of a Neandertal woman. The genome allows detailed insights into the relationships and population history ...

New tool enhances the search for genetic mutations

27-08-2013

Concealed within the vastness of the human genome, (comprised of some 3 billion base pairs), mutations are commonplace. While the majority of these appear to have neutral effect on human health, many others are associated with diseases and disease susceptibility. Reed Cartwright, a researcher at ...

A new future for an old crop: barley enters the genomics age

30-01-2013

The barley genome is almost twice the size of that of humans and determining the sequence of its DNA has proved to be a major challenge. This paper published in Nature is a detailed overview of the functional portions of the barley genome, revealing the order and structure of its 26,000 genes. ...

Learning the alphabet of gene control

24-01-2013

Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have made a large step towards the understanding of how human genes are regulated. In a new study they identified the DNA sequences that bind to over four hundred proteins that control expression of genes. This knowledge is required to understand how ...

GATC Biotech is a partner in decoding the genome of the pathogen Colletotrichum

Detailed information about the transcriptome help to understand the disease mechanism of a fungal pathogen

16-11-2012

In collaboration with the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne GATC Biotech AG has decoded the genome of the fungal pathogen Colletotrichum graminicola. The recently published results show that gene expression plays a decisive role in plant disease. With this ...
