Biologists at the University of California San Diego led by Anna Buchman in the lab of Omar Akbari, a new UC San Diego insect genetics professor, have developed a method of manipulating the genes of Drosophila suzukii, a fruit fly commonly known as the spotted-wing drosophila. The spotted wing drosophila is an agricultural pest that has invaded muc...
(NIH/National Human Genome Research Institute) The Human Genome Project has been awarded the 2017 Prince Mahidol Award for ground-breaking advances in the field of medicine. The award will be received on behalf of the project by Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the institute responsible f...
(University of California - Berkeley) Why are bird eggs so varied in shape? Some are elliptical, others asymmetrical. Some are both, some -- like the spherical egg of the hawk-owl -- are neither. A team of designers at Science worked with curators at UC Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology to categorize egg from 49,000 photos in the collection. They found that egg length and shape relate to bod...
For decades, Matthews led two important repositories for fruit fly research: the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center and FlyBase.
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab and Joint Genome Institute researchers took one of the most popular clustering approaches in modern biology -- Markov Clustering algorithm -- and modified it to run efficiently and at scale on supercomputers. Their algorithm achieved a previously impossible feat: clustering a 70 million node and 68 billion edge biological network in hours.
Bethesda, Md., Thur., February 1, 2018 - The Human Genome Project has been awarded the 2017 Prince Mahidol Award for ground-breaking advances in the field of medicine. The award will be received on behalf of the project by Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the institute responsible for lea...
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Researchers at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley have discovered that as plants develop they craft their root microbiome, favoring microbes that consume very specific metabolites. Their study could help scientists identify ways to enhance the soil microbiome for improved carbon storage and pla...
One key aim of the 100,000 Genomes Project is to improve cancer care for NHS patients. Whole genome sequencing in cancer can enable clinicians to choose better treatments and improve outcomes for patients through personalized medicine.
Dr David Kerr shares thoughts on the 100,000 Genomes project linking whole genome sequencing to outcomes and the skepticism among some colleagues about the benefits of so-called actionable mutations. Medscape Oncology
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Several scientists from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will present talks at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, to be held Feb. 15 - 19 in Austin, Texas. Topics include a new model for science innovation, new ways to search for dark matter, and developments in ad...

(Canadian Medical Association Journal) First results from the Personal Genome Project Canada, which sequenced the entire personal genomes of 56 healthy participants, suggest whole genome sequencing can benefit health care in Canada, according to results published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).
The wheat genome is both colossal and complex, more than five times the size of the human genome, and has been an immense puzzle to scientists for decades. After 10 years of large scale, international research, a group of scientists has finally assembled the wheat genome to its most complete and contiguous state. Assembling the genome took a total ...
(BBC) – The British genome pioneer Sir John Sulston has died aged 75. He came to prominence as the British face of the international project to decode the human genome. Sir John won a Nobel Prize in 2002 for his … Read More
Genomes assembled from shreds and patches may fail to represent all mutations, which include not only the single-nucleotide variants and small indels so ably detected by standard short-read sequencing methods, but also mutations that add, subtract, rearrange, or otherwise reconfigure genomic structures. Genomes more resplendent may be needed—genomes that are assembled from long reads. Such genom...
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A team of researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) and Ohio State University have generated 3-D images from 129 individual molecules of flexible DNA origami particles. Their work provides the first experimental verification of the theoretical model of DNA origami.
The genome of tulip (Tulipa gesneriana) has been sequenced by scientists from three Dutch organizations namely BaseClear, Generade, and Dümmen Orange. Cracking the genome of tulip will help scientists to breed better tulips, and produce them faster and more sustainable.The genome of tulip is the biggest genome that has ever been sequenced. Its size...
Diffusion plays an unexpected role in cell differentiation during the early stages of development in the embryos of Drosophila, or fruit flies, researchers have found. Instead of spreading a molecular signal out, it was found that diffusion, facilitated through a carrier molecule, actually concentrates the signal in one place.
It may be only a matter of time before urban dwellers can hail a self-driving taxi, so researchers at the Department of Energy
(University of Helsinki) A unique study that combines genome information with digital health care data has been launched in Finland. The FinnGen study plans to analyse up to 500 000 unique blood samples collected by a nation-wide network of Finnish biobanks. The goal is to deepen our understanding about the origins of diseases and their treatment. The project is expected to continue for six years,...
(Brigham and Women's Hospital) The MedSeq Project, led by investigators at Brigham Women's Hospital, is the first randomized trial to provide whole genome sequencing to both presumably healthy patients as well as those with a known cardiology issue. The research team found that after six months, downstream health care costs did not significantly differ between patients who had received whole genom...
(North Carolina State University) Researchers have found that diffusion plays an unexpected role in cell differentiation during the early stages of development in the embryos of Drosophila, or fruit flies. Instead of spreading a molecular signal out, it was found that diffusion, facilitated through a carrier molecule, actually concentrates the signal in one place.

Whether your experiment relies upon a reference-based genome assembly or mapping reads to a reference genome to identify variants, you need to choose a human reference genome assembly. But wait! You go to the FTP site of NCBI’s refseq and click on the Homo sapiens folder. There you are presented with two choices. Which one… The post Get to Know Your Reference Genome (GRCh37 vs GRCh38) appe...
