Genes: How Your Lifestyle Choices Could Affect Your Children...

For the first time, we have a mechanism that could explain how your lifestyle choices may impact the genes of your children and grandchildren.

Mounting evidence suggests that environmental factors such as smoking, diet and stress can leave their mark on the genes of future generations. 219 more words

Understanding translocations in 22q13 deletion syndrome: genetics and evolution

My dad

That’s my dad.  No, not the dapper gentleman standing in the back.  He is the diapered baby sitting in front.  One interesting thing about this circa 1924 photograph, I can tell  you unequivocally, is that both males in the photograph are carriers of 22q13 deletion syndrome.   1,396 more words

Determining Exon Connectivity in Complex mRNAs by Nanopore Sequencing

Mohan Bolisetty, Gopinath Rajadinakaran, Brenton Graveley
doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/019752

Though powerful, short-read high throughput RNA sequencing is limited in its ability to directly measure exon connectivity in mRNAs containing multiple alternative exons located farther apart than the maximum read lengths. 50 more words

Biểu hiện gene (gene expression) là chìa khoá giải thích sự khác nhau giữa con người và bệnh tật

Cơ thể chúng ta bao gồm khoảng 37 nghìn tỷ tế bào (cells) gói gọn trong khoảng 200 kiểu tế bào (cell-types), thông tin di truyền (DNA) của tất cả các tế bào là như nhau thế nhưng mỗi tế bào lại trở thành một cơ quan chức năng (organ) hay mô (tissue) khác nhau như da (skin), mắt (eyes) là do cơ chế biểu hiện genes (tạm dịch từ gene expression); hay nói nôm na ví dụ như tế bào A có các genes X, Y, Z ở trạng thái bật (ON) sẽ thành da trong khi tế bào B có các gene X, Y, Z ở trạng thái tắt (OFF) sẽ thành tim phổi chẳng hạn. 793 more words
