study identifies african-specific genomic variant associated with obesity




an international team of researchers has conducted the first study of its kind to look at the genomic underpinnings of obesity in continental africans and african-americans. they discovered that approximately 1 percent of west africans, african-americans and others of african ancestry carry a genomi...



preliminary: brca variations may work alongside comt variation to reduce breast




washington (may 25, 2017) -- research looking at genomic data from women with a genetic risk for breast cancer, who may never develop cancer, found their cancer-free state may be related to a second genetic variation. researchers at the george washington university (gw) found through looking at data...

wheat genomics comes of age




most humans consume the grain from 50 wheat plants daily providing them with roughly 20% of their calorific and 25% of their protein intake (www.fao.org/faostat). despite its global importance, wheat has lagged behind other cereals such as rice and maize in the application of genomic tools for its ...



principles of 3-d genome folding and gene expression studied across species




it seems like a feat of magic. human dna, if stretched out into one, long spaghetti-like strand, would measure 2 meters (six feet) long. and yet, all of our dna is compacted more than 10,000 times to fit inside a single cell. how is this accomplished while preserving the overall, vital genomic organ...



researchers find chromosome cooperation is long-distance endeavor




multiple genomic elements work cooperatively and over long distances in order to ensure the proper functioning of chromosomes, a team of scientists has found. its research offers new insights into the complexity of gene regulation.
