Applying math to biology: Software identifies disease-causing mutations in undiagnosed illnesses - 22/04/2014 / Leido 167 veces/ Comentarios 0

A computational tool has successfully identified diseases with unknown gene mutations in three separate cases. Sequencing the genomes of individuals or small families often produces false predictions of mutations that cause diseases. But this study shows that a new unique approach allows it to...

New Study Shows Routine Blood Glucose Measurements Can Accurately Estimate Hemoglobin A1c in Diabetes - 22/04/2014 / Leido 180 veces/ Comentarios 0

Hemoglobin A1c is the standard measurement for assessing glycemic control over time in people with diabetes. Blood levels of A1c are typically measured every few months in a laboratory, but now researchers have developed a data-based model that accurately estimates A1c using self-monitored blood...

A French consortium, coordinated by INRA and gathering CEA (Genoscope), CNRS and the Ecoles Normales Supérieures of Paris and Lyon, sequenced and analyzed the genome of the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), which constitutes the first published genome of a salmonid (salmons and trouts family)....

Las células tumorales se comportan como el curioso caso de Benjamin Button - 22/04/2014 / Leido 158 veces/ Comentarios 0

La mayoría de tumores presentan inestabilidad genómica debida a ganancias y pérdidas de genes, rotura de cromosomas, mutaciones, etc. A pesar de que estas alteraciones son necesariamente letales para las células normales, no lo son para las cancerosas, que olvidan las propiedades del...

How are we different and what gave us the advantage over extinct types of humans like the Neanderthals? - 22/04/2014 / Leido 272 veces/ Comentarios 0
