For one family, zebrafish help provide genetic answers (10/30/2014)

For one family, zebrafish help provide genetic answersResearch in zebrafish has helped identify the cause of an unknown genetic disorder affecting a boy and two of his uncles, scientists report in the journal Genetics. The researchers tracked down a mutation carried only by the affected males and their mothers, within a gene called RPL10. When the equivalent gene was suppressed in zebrafish, the animals developed smaller heads, which is one of the major symptoms of the human disease. ...> Full Article


New sequencing reveals genetic history of tomatoes (10/28/2014)

New sequencing reveals genetic history of tomatoesThe sequencing of 360 tomato varieties has yielded a 'genetic history' of the popular food crop. ...> Full Article


Whole exome sequencing closer to becoming 'new family history' (10/28/2014)

Approximately one-fourth of the 3,386 patients whose DNA was submitted for clinical whole exome testing received a diagnosis related to a known genetic disease, often ending a long search for answers for them and their parents, said researchers from the Baylor College of Medicine departments of molecular and human genetics and pediatrics and the Baylor Human Genome Sequencing Center and the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. ...> Full Article


New 'tree of life' traces evolution of a mysterious cotinga birds (10/27/2014)

They are some of the brightest, loudest, oddest-looking, least-understood birds on the planet, and thanks to a comprehensive new evolutionary 'tree of life' generated for the tropical cotinga family of South America, the door is now open to new discoveries about the more than 60 species in this amazingly diverse group of birds. ...> Full Article


Swiss scientists explain evolution of extreme parasites (10/23/2014)

Swiss scientists explain evolution of extreme parasitesExtreme adaptations of species often cause such significant changes that their evolutionary history is difficult to reconstruct. Zoologists at the University of Basel have now discovered a new parasite species that represents the missing link between fungi and an extreme group of parasites. Researches are now able to understand for the first time the evolution of these parasites. The study has been published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...> Full Article


Treasure trove of ancient genomes helps recalibrate the human evolutionary clock (10/16/2014)

To improve the modeling and reading of the branches on the human tree of life, authors Francois Balloux et al, compiled the most comprehensive DNA set to date, a new treasure trove of 146 ancient (including Neanderthal and Denisovian) and modern human full mitochondrial genomes (amongst a set of 320 available worldwide). ...> Full Article


Around the world in 400,000 years: The journey of the red fox (10/15/2014)

Around the world in 400,000 years: The journey of the red foxUniversity of California, Davis, researchers have for the first time investigated ancestry across the red fox genome, including the Y chromosome, or paternal line. The data, compiled for over 1,000 individuals from all over the world, expose some surprises about the origins, journey and evolution of the red fox, the world's most widely distributed land carnivore. ...> Full Article


GIANT study reveals giant number of genes linked to height (10/14/2014)

The largest genome-wide association study to date, involving more than 300 institutions and more than 250,000 subjects, roughly doubles the number of known gene regions influencing height to more than 400. The study, from the international Genetic Investigation of Anthropometric Traits Consortium, provides a better glimpse at the biology of height and offers a model for investigating traits and diseases caused by many common gene changes acting together. ...> Full Article


Ancient protein-making enzyme moonlights as DNA protector (10/13/2014)

Ancient protein-making enzyme moonlights as DNA protectorScientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found that an enzyme best known for its fundamental role in building proteins has a second major function: to protect DNA during times of cellular stress. The finding is remarkable on a basic science level, but also points the way to possible therapeutic applications. ...> Full Article


Semen secrets: How a previous sexual partner can influence another male's offspring (10/12/2014)

Semen secrets: How a previous sexual partner can influence another male's offspringScientists have discovered a new form of non-genetic inheritance, showing for the first time that offspring can resemble a mother's previous sexual partner -- in flies at least. Researchers at UNSW Australia manipulated the size of male flies and studied their offspring. They found that the size of the young was determined by the size of the first male the mother mated with, rather than the second male that sired the offspring. ...> Full Article


Research confirms controversial Darwin theory of 'jump dispersal' (10/11/2014)

Research confirms controversial Darwin theory of 'jump dispersal'More than one hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Darwin hypothesized that species could cross oceans and other vast distances on vegetation rafts, icebergs, or in the case of plant seeds, in the plumage of birds.Though many were skeptical of Darwin's 'jump dispersal' idea, a new study suggests that Darwin might have been correct. ...> Full Article

Ancient human genome from southern Africa throws light on our origins (10/9/2014)

Ancient human genome from southern Africa throws light on our originsThe skeleton of a man who lived 2,330 years ago in the southernmost tip of Africa tells us about ourselves as humans, and throws some light on our earliest common genetic ancestry. The man's genome was sequenced and shown to be one of the 'earliest diverged' -- oldest in genetic terms -- found to-date in a region where modern humans are believed to have originated roughly 200,000 years ago. ...> Full Article


Human genome was shaped by an evolutionary arms race with itself (10/8/2014)

Human genome was shaped by an evolutionary arms race with itselfNew findings by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, suggest that an evolutionary arms race between rival elements within the genomes of primates drove the evolution of complex regulatory networks that orchestrate the activity of genes in every cell of our bodies. The arms race is between mobile DNA sequences known as 'retrotransposons' (a.k.a. 'jumping genes') and the genes that have evolved to control them. ...> Full Article


Genetic, developmental and anatomical basis of natural selection for sensory structures (10/7/2014)

Genetic, developmental and anatomical basis of natural selection for sensory structuresHoping to understand how the tremendous diversity of life on Earth evolved even as irreversible species and habitat loss rapidly proceeds, a research group of bat experts including biologist Elizabeth Dumont of the University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a five-year, $1.91 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study how bats sense their environment and other individuals, including potential mates, to ensure survival and reproduction. ...> Full Article
