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...

Tales from 141,430 and one genomes

(University of California - Berkeley) Non-invasive prenatal testing potentially provides a wealth of genetic information, but the quality of the DNA sequencing is poor -- only about 10 percent coverage per genome. Nevertheless, scientists led by Rasmus Nielsen at UC Berkeley now show that with enough genomes -- in this case, 141,431 -- it is possible to find genetic variants linked with human trai...

(Rockefeller University) The Genome 10K announces the official launch of a new project, the international Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP), and its first release of 15 new, high-quality reference genomes for 14 species representing all five vertebrate classes - mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes.

UK Genomes sequences 100,000 whole genomes

The 100,000 Genomes Project utilizes whole genome sequencing technology to enhance diagnoses and treatments for patients with rare inherited diseases and cancer. The project, which was started in The post UK Genomes sequences 100,000 whole genomes appeared first on Compelo Medical Devices.

Algorithms to locate centrioles in the cell

(University of Extremadura) Investigators from the UEx have developed a methodology with new algorithms to analyse the location of the centriole in a model cell. Thanks to this technology, they have been able to discover how the actin cytoskeleton, is involved in the polarised placement of centrioles in Drosophila, just as happens in vertebrates. However, the planar cell polarity-dependent factors...

Genetic soil prospecting yields wealth of potential antibiotics

(University of California - Berkeley) Though soil bacteria have provided some of our best antibiotics, the drugs come from a small group of all the microbes in soil. UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab scientists used metagenomics to sequence all the genomes of soil microbes in a teaspoon of soil to search for molecules that look like antibiotics. They found several hundred clusters of genes similar to t...

Researchers Unlock Sweet Mysteries of the Sugarcane Genome

Over 100 scientists from 16 institutions worked together for five years to complete the massive and complex sugarcane genome. The crop's massive genome was difficult to sequence because in the evolutionary history of sugarcane, its genome was duplicated twice, resulting in four slightly different versions of each pair of chromosomes all crammed int...
