Now, though, thanks to Sunrises' coordinated resources—including stabilized plant populations of the plant biologist George Weiblen's laboratory at the University of Minnesota—fellow geneticists will be able to access a comprehensive picture of cannabis' 10 pairs of chromosomes. Weiblen's lab is the only DEA-approved ...
By isolating desirable genetics traits from European and African cow breeds, geneticists hope to design a cow that produces high quantities of milk and is also able to withstand exceptionally high temperatures. An Edinburgh-based nonprofit, GALVmed (Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines) ...

Genetic material form people in some of the poorest regions of Pakistan are in high demand among scientists around the world. In Denmark, geneticists have used such samples from rural Pakistan to understand how genetic defects occur. Genetic defects and disease are more common in areas of Pakistan ...

Ever since DNA was first isolated in 1869, the scientific community has constantly sought to determine how it works, and reveal its secrets. Despite advances ...
The majority of its 330,000 inhabitants descend from a small group of Vikings and Celts who settled some 1,100 years ago, and immigration to the island country has been rare ever since. Icelanders keep exceptional genealogical records on almost every single citizen, a longstanding practice done partly ...
After that, the geneticists compared their findings to other genomic data from sources in the US, the UK, and the Netherlands. Those who had higher degrees usually had less children, researchers found, leading to a case of negative selection for higher education genes. Negative selection is a purging of ...

Genetic modification of plants is common in U.S. agriculture. But animals? Not so much. That could be changing soon. The MIT Technology Review ran a profile of Australian geneticist Alison Van Eenennaam, who has been working on something pretty crazy: genetically modified cattle that only give birth to ...
South African authorities long had eyes on Rogers Mukwena. They knew the former schoolteacher was wanted in Zimbabwe for poaching rhinoceroses and selling their horns, which can command hundreds of thousands of dollars. He'd jumped bail and fled to northern Pretoria, but it was vexingly difficult to ...
Geneticists recommend designating isolated dolphin population as 'endangered'. Date: December 22, 2017; Source: Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute; Summary: Bottlenose dolphins in Panama's Bocas Del Toro Archipelago should be designated as endangered say the authors of a new study. Biologists have ...
For many people today, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, is most commonly linked with both the fundraising Ice Bucket Challenge and one its most famous patients, the physicist Stephen Hawking. However, it could soon have a brand-new distinction — the next disease to be ...
By comparing DNA sequences, geneticists can not only reconstruct relationships between different populations or species but also infer evolutionary history over deep timescales. Molecular clocks are becoming more sophisticated, thanks to improved DNA sequencing, analytical tools and a better ...
UCSF is moving to bring primary care physicians and other providers together with geneticists, and incorporate genetic information in the care of healthy ... Ophir Klein (left), M.D., Ph.D., is leading initiatives at UCSF that will bring together geneticists with clinicians so patients have an avenue through which ...
The revolution will not be televised. It'll be sent to your inbox by us. sign up. Scientists have found a new use for a precision gene-editing technique that could prove safer and treat disease without creating mutated side-effects. With the CRISPR-Cas9 technology that enables researchers to remove, add or ...
In December 2017, Cell Press reported that geneticists at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland proposed a new approach to pest control. They would attack rat sperm at the DNA level, using Crispr gene-editing technology to eliminate X chromosomes and thus end female births, slowly but surely killing off ...
Breakthrough Prizes Recognize Geneticists, Big Bang Researchers. Among this year's winners are a geneticist who revealed how plants respond to shade and a group of physicists who mapped the universe's background radiation. By Catherine Offord | December 4, 2017.

In the area of human capital, nearly one-third (30 percent) of respondents said they have in-house geneticists in place. Thirty-eight percent of respondents expect to have in-house geneticists in place within the next two years. The chief quality officer of an intermediate-size (251 to 500 bed) provider ...
Psychiatric disorders can be debilitating and often involve a genetic component, yet, evolution hasn't weeded them out. Now, recent work is beginning to reveal the role of natural selection—offering a peek at how the genetic underpinnings of mental illness has changed over time. Many psychiatric ...

esearch grounded in genetics is booming: Therapies are in the works to treat a number of rare, inherited disorders, from blindness to nerve disease. But there's a shortage of doctors trained to diagnose and treat such illnesses. During match season for medical trainees this year, just 30 of the 55 spots for ...
And because many geneticists worked with only a few key organisms, such as the thale cress Arabidopsis thaliana, they didn't need expertise in comparing and contrasting different plant species. At universities, botany departments folded and molecular-biology departments swelled. Kellogg, now at the ...
... simple inherited trait, such as earlobe attachment, involves a complex interplay of genes that geneticists are only beginning to understand.
The UNIGE geneticists also found that trisomy 21 also affected the cell's various sub-structures, especially the mitochondria, which are ...
Along with the nine purported Yeti relics, the geneticists also sequenced the mitochondrial DNA of 14 other Asian bears and compared that ...
“This study represents a great partnership between wildlife management and geneticists,” said Jason Malaney, lead author of the study.
