Flies meet gruesome end under influence of puppeteer fungus

(University of California - Berkeley) Various fungi are known to infect insects and alter their behavior, presumably to assist in spreading fungal spores as widely as possible. But little is known about how the fungi affect behavior. UC Berkeley scientists have now found a fungus that infects the common lab fly, Drosophila melanogaster, providing a model in which to explore behavior-manipulating f...

UC Berkeley's massive egg collection aids project up for Webby

(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...

RNA Isolation from Drosophila – Don’t Let the Cuticle Scare You!

Isolating RNA from either Drosophila larvae or adult heads can seem a bit daunting, primarily due to the presence of the cuticle. The cuticle is a protective exoskeleton comprised of insoluble collagens, cuticlins, glycoproteins, and lipids. While it may take some force to remove the cuticle, you can do this easily and without compromising your… The post RNA Isolation from Drosophila – Don...

Researchers Develop First Gene Drive Targeting World's Invasive Crop Pest

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...

For decades, Matthews led two important repositories for fruit fly research: the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center and FlyBase.

‘Fast track’ project shows promising results in cancer whole genome analyses

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.

A game changer: Metagenomic clustering powered by supercomputers

(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.

'100,000 Genomes' Project: Linking Genome Sequencing to Outcomes

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

Tau-tolly microtubular!

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California, Berkeley have combined cutting-edge cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) with computational molecular modeling to produce a near atomic-resolution model of the interaction between microtubules--crucial components of eukaryotic cell ultrastructure--and microtubule...

Scientists Downsize Bold Plan to Make Human Genome from Scratch

(Scientific American) – A bold plan to synthesize an entire human genome has been scaled back, aiming at a more technically attainable near-term goal. Instead of synthesizing all of the human genome’s 3 billion DNA base pairs, the project will … Read More

Plants really do feed their friends

(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...

Sir John Sulston Human Genome Pioneer Dies

(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

DNA Day 2018: Celebrate 15 ways genomics now influences our lives

On April 5th, NHGRI will launch the '15 for 15' Celebration to honor the 15th anniversary of the Human Genome Project's completion. Beginning April 5th, and each business day leading up to National DNA Day on April 25th, NHGRI will reveal one of 15 topics that illustrate the genomic developments made since the end of the Human Genome Project and emphasize the importance of genomics in people's li...

Human Genome Project receives Thai 2017 Prince Mahidol Award

On January 31, 2018, the Human Genome Project (HGP) received a distinct and historic honor - the 2017 Prince Mahidol Award in the Field of Medicine. NHGRI Director, Dr. Eric Green, traveled to Bangkok, Thailand, to accept this prestigious award on behalf of the HGP.

Genome ‘writers’ set their first goal: recoding human cells to resist viruses

Scientists participating in Genome Project-write announced their first target: creating human cells that could never be infected by viruses and might also be resistant to other killers.

Does genome sequencing increase downstream costs?

(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...

New era for blood transfusions through genome sequencing

Scientists have leveraged the MedSeq Project -- the first randomized trial of whole genome sequencing in healthy adults -- to develop and validate a computer program that can comprehensively and cost-effectively determine differences in individuals' blood types with more than 99 percent accuracy.
