With the use of DNA extraction from feces, pet owners who have left their dogs' poop out in the open can now be traced. Samples sent to laboratory will be used to match with the registered dogs in the database.
With the positive result of their study, the researchers claim that their new method can also be used DNA damage caused by other environmental toxins.
Ancient Egyptians are more closely related to ancient Europeans and Anatolians than to modern Egyptians.
In another step to make the project more open to public, Boeke shared an open discussion will be held this coming May 9-10 in New York. The agenda will include discussing the roadmap of the project including ethical, social and legal engagement.
A genetic study of the ancient remains revealed that there were women - possibly in disguise - on board the Franklin Expedition.
Scientists find human DNA in sedimentary samples from caves without bone remains.
The undertaking of Joe Basile, lead pastor of both the Encounter Road Church in Visalia and the Encounter Church in Clovis, and Oxford University geneticist George Busby was recently shown on History Channel in an Easter special documentary titled "The Jesus Strand: A Search for DNA."
Researchers abel to map out fish migration patterns using Environmental DNA.
Because of the high percentage of RNA editing in cephalopods, these creatures have suppressed their ability for genomic evolution just to maintain their flexibility in RNA editing.
The discovery means humanity is close to creating custom genomes from yeast and is just a few years away from making the first artificial organisms.
BabySeq is a newborn-screening study that is taking place in Brigham and Women's Hospital and Boston Childrne's Hospital, which is one of the four study sites of the NIH.
A lot of people know that a lot of what everything appears is based on how information is encoded in the DNA. However, theoretical physicists have unveiled something else. It appears it's not all related to the information in DNA, but on how the DNA itself is "folded" as well.
A single DNA gram can store 215 petabytes (or 215 million gigabytes) of information, which means it can very well contain all of the world's information with just a few pickup trucks' worth of DNA.
Their paper published in journal Science notes that they were able to store 214 petabytes per gram of DNA.
