Whose Baby is it? More Dads Seek DNA Tests

Metropolis Healthcare, the only private lab in the city so far to provide DNA paternity tests, has been getting eight to 10 cases a month. “Infidelity is one of the main reasons behind men asking for this test,’’ said Dr Nisha Ahmad, of Metropolis Labs. “Abroad though, the primary reason is a possible mixing up of babies.’’ She said there are a lot of inquiries about the tests. “Many who approach us for the test are not from the city,’’ she said. Experts also attribute the rise in paternity tests to more couples seeking the help of assisted reproductive methods. Clinics [more...]

Quick Nucleic Acid Facts

Anne Marie's Chemistry BlogBy Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D., Chemistry Guide | My Bio | RSSMy BioMy BlogMy ForumRSS If you're taking general chemistry, organic, or biochemistry, you'll need to understand some basic concepts about nucleic acids, the polymers used to code the genetic information of organisms. Here are some quick nucleic acid facts to get you started: Nucleic acids are the molecules that code the genetic information of organisms. The two nucleic acids used in repair, reproduction and protein synthesis are deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA, shown) and ribonucleic acid [more...]

Graphene could revolutionize DNA sequencing - physicsworld.com

By feeding individual strands of DNA through nanometre-sized holes, researchers in the Netherlands say they have proved the principle of a revolutionary new DNA sequencing technique. The breakthrough is part of a worldwide race to develop fast and low-cost strategies to analyse these codes that underpin the chemistry of life. The genetic profile – or "genome" – of an organism is determined by recording the full sequence of acid base pairs that make up its DNA. In 2003, the Human Genome Project made history by determining the entire human genetic code – 3 billion DNA base pairs that took [more...]

DNA strides into organic synthesis

The walker and three 'stations', made from specific DNA sequences, organise themselves along the track using the normal pairing of DNA bases. 'The walker will move unidirectionally along the track,' Liu says. 'We attached chemical reactants to the walker and each station on the track. As the DNA walker moves from station to station, a programmed series of chemical reactions takes place.' The walking strand of DNA moves to each station (blue, red and green) in turn and reacts with the attached reagent © Nature Nanotechnol. In this way, the Harvard team was able to perform three acylation [more...]

Dr. Pandey “pulls off” new DNA sequencing method

The current method to sequence DNA is called gel-electrophoresis. This process is very costly and time consuming. However, Dr. Pandey and his research team have proposed a way to make DNA sequencing far easier and cheaper than the current method. For those of you scratching your heads and wondering what the purpose of DNA sequencing could possibly be, imagine in the futurew going to the doctor and getting customized medicine just for you based on your DNA. This medicine would do exactly what it needed to in order to fix your problem because it was made specifically for you and only you. [more...]

Imagine that a machine draws your blood, screens it for genetic mutations and chemical variations that can cause cancer, and then pops out a drug tailor-made for your DNA. The hypothetical drug would target and fix the point irregularities which have accumulated over time that can lead to the formation of tumors — and cancer. "Personalized cancer drug delivery? Depending on the approach, it could be as soon as 10 to 15 years away," says Viterbi professor Andrea Armani , an assistant professor of the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science.

Coiling bacterial DNA | Code for Life

A chain of proteins hold bacterial DNA in a compacted spiral. You and I are eukaryotes. Our cells have nuclei, repositories that contain our DNA and the proteins that read them to produce an RNA copy of them. In earlier articles, I’ve mentioned in passing how the enormous length of DNA in our cells is fitted into a nucleus. Our DNA, all 2 metres of it, were you to stretch it out end-to-end — is fitted within a nucleus with a diameter of roughly 6-10 micrometres, about one-millionth of a metre. The trick is that a DNA molecule is very skinny — it’s only about 2 nanometers wide (2 [more...]

DNA Paternity Testing Before A Child's Birth | Health Tips by O

Because of advances in technology nowadays, a DNA test can be done even if the child is still lying comfortably inside the womb of her mother. In DNA test labs; this is called the Prenatal DNA Paternity Testing, although Home DNA testing cannot be possibly made. This is done by collecting either one or two sample specimens from the mother’s womb, from the period between 10 to 24 weeks after conception depending on the different age of the developing fetus. The method used to collect the sample for DNA Testing is chorionic villus sampling or CVS, if the pregnancy falls within the period 10 [more...]

Darwin's God: For What Profit?

But paternity testing and DNA fingerprinting are completely unrelated to the pseudogene example presented by evolutionist Ken Miller at the Kitzmiller trial. This comparison of forensic tests with evolutionary homologies is another common evolutionary canard that evolutionists use to mislead those not familiar with molecular biology. Forensic tests are performed where genealogical relationships are known to exist because they are empirically observed. There’s no question that people have children, and those children’s DNA sequences derive from their parents, grandparents, and so forth. [more...]

Innocence Blog: Maryland Man Pressed for DNA Test and Made History

Posted: June 25, 2010 2:19 pm This week marks the seventeenth anniversary of Maryland fisherman Kirk Bloodsworth’s exoneration. In 1985, Bloodsworth was charged and convicted of the rape and murder of a nine year old girl. A 1992 DNA test proved his innocence after he had incorrectly served eight years in prison, two of which he spent on death row. In July of 1984, a nine-year old girl was found dead having been brutally raped, strangled, and beaten. The police received an anonymous call; the caller claimed that Bloodsworth was seen with the victim on the day of the crime. A police sketch [more...]

Can Smoking Induce DNA Changes Leading to Colorectal Cancer

How DNA Changes Can Lead to Cancer? Our body is made up of basic units called cells. These cells follow certain instructions called genes to carry out their normal functions. Genes are chemical structures made up of DNA molecules. When these genetic instructions are read or transcripted by the cells to know their functions, the DNA molecules produce another type of molecules known as RNA. These RNA molecules in turn produce certain chemicals called proteins which carry out the instructions into various functionalities of the cells. There are several factors and ways by which the structure [more...]

Paternity Blood Test | Diet and Health Tips & Products Reviews

Today, the most accurate tests (99.99%) to determine the paternity of a child are made through DNA. Collecting DNA sample is done two ways: Buccal swab (swabbing the inside of the cheek) and blood samples. Known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction), the procedure is used in comparing samples of the childís DNA with that of the alleged father. Since the childís DNA is a fairly equal combination of DNA of his parents, excluding the DNA of the mother gives us a genetic profile of the biological father. However, before science knew how to isolate DNA, blood samples were the standard in a variety [more...]
