Summer school in Bioinformatics July 25-30 IN HOCHIMINH CITY, VIETNAM

 At 2015-07-01 04:53:02 PM  |   76

Within the last 10 years, with the new development of Genome Sequencing methods, biotechnology has been in its revolution: many diseases has been detected and cured using the information from patients’ DNA; many new cells and their functions have been discovered based on single cell sequencing; many efficients drugs/vaccines been designed using the genomic information of viruses and human. Read more

Enormous databases of medical records have begun to reveal the hidden biological missteps that make us sick. Read more

From Indexing Data Structures to de Bruijn Graphs

 At 2014-10-31 03:03:42 PM  |   309

New technologies have tremendously increased sequencing throughput compared to traditional techniques, thereby complicating DNA assembly. Read more

Ragout—a reference-assisted assembly tool for bacterial genomes

 At 2014-06-16 01:38:04 PM  |   152

Bacterial genomes are simpler than mammalian ones, and yet assembling the former from the data currently generated by high-throughput short-read sequencing machines still results in hundreds of contigs. To improve assembly quality, recent studies have utilized longer Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) reads or jumping libraries to connect contigs into larger scaffolds or help assemblers resolve ambiguities in repetitive regions of the genome. Read more

Genome yields insights into golden eagle vision, smell

 At 2014-06-08 01:19:29 PM  |   119

Purdue and West Virginia University researchers are the first to sequence the genome of the golden eagle, providing a bird's-eye view of eagle features that could lead to more effective conservation strategies. Read more

Whole-genome sequencing is becoming increasingly available for research purposes, but it has not yet been routinely used for clinical diagnosis. Read more

Genetic and functional properties of uncultivated MCG archaea assessed by metagenome and gene expression analyses

 At 2014-03-18 02:05:18 AM  |   95

The Miscellaneous Crenarchaeota group (MCG) Archaea is one of the predominant archaeal groups in anoxic environments and may have significant roles in the global biogeochemical cycles. However, no isolate of MCG has been cultivated or characterized to date. In this study, we investigated the genetic organization, ecophysiological properties and evolutionary relationships of MCG archaea with other archaeal members using metagenome information and the result of gene expression experiments. Read more

Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression

 At 2014-03-18 02:01:05 AM  |   330

Each mammalian cell has the same genes, yet performs distinct functions. This is achieved by epigenetic control of gene expression; the switching on and switching off of genes. This course will cover the principles of epigenetic control of gene expression, how epigenetic control contributes to cellular differentiation and development, and how it goes wrong in disease. Read more

Initial sequencing and comparative analysis of the mouse genome

 At 2014-03-16 02:40:49 AM  |   95

The sequence of the mouse genome is a key informational tool for understanding the contents of the human genome and a key experimental tool for biomedical research. Here, we report the results of an international collaboration to produce a high-quality draft sequence of the mouse genome.  Read more

Comparative analysis of RNA sequencing methods for degraded or low-input samples

 At 2014-03-09 08:36:46 AM  |   209

RNA-seq is an effective method for studying the transcriptome, but it can be difficult to apply to scarce or degraded RNA from fixed clinical samples, rare cell populations or cadavers. Recent studies have proposed several methods for RNA-seq of low-quality and/or low-quantity samples, but the relative merits of these methods have not been systematically analyzed.  Read more

An environmental bacterial taxon with a large and distinct metabolic repertoire

 At 2014-03-06 11:04:16 AM  |   76

Cultivated bacteria such as actinomycetes are a highly useful source of biomedically important natural products. However, such ‘talented’ producers represent only a minute fraction of the entire, mostly uncultivated, prokaryotic diversity. The uncultured majority is generally perceived as a large, untapped resource of new drug candidates, but so far it is unknown whether taxa containing talented bacteria indeed exist. Read more
