Dog Breed Is Not an Accurate Way To Predict Behavior
A new study that combined genome sequences from over 2,000 dogs with survey data from a further 18,000 pooches has come to a conclusion that upends over a century of established thinking on dog behavior, finding that a dog’s breed contributes little to its behavioral tendencies.
New Animal Model for Studying Crucial Component of Genomic Maintenance
Researchers at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) have created a new disease model that has contributed to a better understanding of Bloom syndrome and the sex determination processes of zebrafish.
New Approach to Large-Scale Single-Cell Profiling Developed
A new experimental pipeline has been developed to profile more cell types from different tissues, incorporating machine learning to collate the data and assemble the cell atlas.
Sequencing Life on Earth, One Eukaryote at a Time
The Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), described as a “moonshot” project for biology, aims to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of the 1.8 million named eukaryotes on Earth, in just 10 years. Technology Networks spoke to the scientists leading the project to learn about its progress and how it will help the Earth's biodiversity crisis.
Cells Unlock Restrictions on Phenotypic Plasticity To Progress as Cancer
From a cell signaling perspective, phenotypic plasticity is important because it allows cells to take on a form that aids their invasive and metastatic abilities. In this article, we explore the topic in more detail.
Targeting Cancer Through Induced Viral Mimicry
Researchers from Sanford Burnham Prebys have been awarded two grants from the National Institutes of Health to study an emerging therapeutic strategy known as viral mimicry. Dr. Charles Spruck and colleagues are working to understand how a specific pathway silences endogenous retroviruses and retrotransposons selectively in breast cancer cells and whether this could expose a vulnerability that could be exploited.
Celebrating DNA Day 2022
April 25 marks National DNA Day, a celebration of the Human Genome Project completion in 2003 and the discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953. At Technology Networks, we are celebrating DNA Day 2022 by highlighting some of the incredible research that we have covered in genomics over the last year.
Sample Quality Control for Nucleic Acid Analysis Workflows
Sample QC can help maximize research success in both next-generation sequencing (NGS) and biobanking applications. Sample quality metrics such as nucleic acid size, integrity and concentration can be used to rank DNA and RNA fragments from 1 to 10.
