CGS : Identigene Offers Off-the-Shelf DNA Paternity Test

Identigene, a business unit of the Sorenson Genomics laboratory in Salt Lake City, caught the media's attention nationally when it recently announced the DNA Paternity Test Collection Kit is available in 4,363 Rite Aid stores in 30 states, including California, and the District of Columbia. The kit costs $30 or less, but there's an additional $119 charge for the lab processing of the DNA samples (which are collected by cheek swabs). Reaction has ranged from curiosity about consumer demand to concerns about the overall amount of self-administered DNA testing - for a variety of purposes - [more...]

Methylation Test May Aid Colon Cancer Diagnosis (CME/CE) | Discuss ...

To develop a more sensitive test for DNA methylation, investigators employed a form of technology known as BEAMing (beads, emulsion, amplification, and magnetics). They performed PCR amplification of individual DNA fragments covalently linked to magnetic beads suspended in water-based nanoparticles immersed in oil droplets. The beads contained a DNA sequence specific for exon 1 of the vimentin gene, which is hypermethylated in colon cancer. Following PCR amplification, the beads were hybridized by means of fluorescent probes specific to the state of methylation and then sorted and analyzed by [more...]

Industrial Sourcing News: How immune response in pregnancy may ...

"Infection during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of damage to the developing nervous system. Given that many agents have been implicated, we decided to focus on mechanisms by which the maternal immune response, rather than direct infection of the fetus, might contribute to behavioral disturbances in the offspring of mothers who suffer infection during pregnancy," says W. Ian Lipkin of Columbia University, senior author on the study.To better understand how the immune response causes these neurological changes, the researchers exposed pregnant mice to a synthetic molecular mimic [more...]

Advantages Of DNA Paternity Test

DNA Paternity Test is trusted way of confirming a biological relationship of a supposed father to a child. In fact here are the two methods used to perform this type of test. 1. Court Admissible Test – Collection of samples is performed through a controlled chain-of-custody procedure  with a third party to act as a witness and verify the authenticity of the samples.  This is a cheat proof  system if a neutral and qualified third party witness is used. 2. At-Home DNA Paternity Test. DNA Testing kit is  usually sent at home and the person involved is responsible for collecting his own [more...]

Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: mtDNA of Yemeni and Ethiopian Jews

The recent studies on Jews have uncovered several genetic sub-clusters of Jews, and only lineages that occur in 2 or more of these clusters, and preferably geographically separated ones have a strong claim of representing original Jewish lineages. There is a limit on what can be uncovered about the past from the study of living populations.

Cousin marriage in the UK and genetic testing | john hawks weblog

The authors mention genetic testing only briefly, mentioning that it cannot eliminate all risk of all rare autosomal recessive disorders because we cannot test for every possible disease-associated variant. That is true, but at some point the effectiveness of screening for known variants makes the additional risk of cousin marriage very slight compared to the ordinary risk in outbred marriages. What remains is the question of inbreeding depression. How important are genes of small effect to phenotypes we care about?
