Opportunities and Challenges for the NIH — An Interview with ...
As part of writing this book, I anonymously had my own DNA sampled by the three companies that are doing direct-to-consumer marketing of DNA testing, because there is obviously a lot of interest in all that and I was interested, too. The laboratory side of this seems to work pretty well, because they all got the same genotype. They were not consistent, however, in how they interpreted the results, because the field is moving so quickly. I think all the companies probably overrepresented the degree to which we already can predict people’s future risk of illness and underrepresented how much [more...]

A new Y-DNA genetic test enables individuals to research paternal line connections of a male relative, and complements GeneTree’s existing maternal line mtDNA test. Y-DNA results show ancestry and connections to DNA cousins within the past few hundred years.The opportunity to find and connect with “lost” or unknown extended family members through the world’s most extensive correlated genetic genealogy database is a compelling GeneTree feature. “My 82-year-old mother was almost in tears when I told her we had found a branch of our family that we had lost touch with long ago,” said [more...]

Ultrafast EMCCD cameras point the way to faster DNA sequencing
To harness this powerful single-molecule detection modality for high-throughput DNA sequencing, each of the four nucleotides (A, C, G and T) in the target DNA has to be converted into a predefined sequence of oligonucleotides, using a technique called Circular DNA Conversion. Each pre-defined sequence is then hybridized to a self-quenching molecular beacon.In their experimental setup, the Meller team recorded DNA translocation through a 4nm pore in a SiN membrane immersed between two aqueous solutions. With the camera in place, the researchers were able to detect florescence bursts in two [more...]

NewsDaily: Scientists say rare plant has biggest genome yet
With 152.23 picograms (pg) of DNA, the Paris japonica has around 15 percent more than the previous record holder, the marbled lungfish or Protopterus aethiopicus, with 132.83 pg. It is also more than 50 times bigger than the human genome, which is 3.0 picograms. A picogram is one trillionth of a gram. Leitch said the importance of size lies in the fact that the more DNA there is in a genome, the longer it takes for a cell to copy all of its DNA and divide. "The knock-on effect of this is that it can take longer for an organism with a larger genome to complete its life cycle than one with a [more...]

Working with the ASPCA, Wictum is compiling a database called the Canine Combined DNA Index System. So far, it includes about 400 samples taken from inside the cheeks of fighting dogs, including those seized in the Missouri raid. It's designed to help law enforcement go after not just the fight operators, but the breeders, as well. Rickey says that's where the money is. "For most of these fighters, it all comes down to creating a champion, and then to breed that champion," he says. Breeders can get as much as $20,000 for a puppy from a champion bloodline, according to Rickey. And genetic [more...]

When you are tracing the family of one ancestor, it is also a good idea to know the DNA of their spouse. Chances are you can learn more about grandpa through exploring grandma’s records and connections. Each DNA test you add to your genetic family tree gives you a better picture of your family.

The idea is to have a canine version of the FBI’s CODIS — a database of human DNA that is used to connect criminals to crime scenes. In this case, the DNA might help prove that breeders supplied dogs to a dogfighting ring. In a Missouri case, DNA samples from dogs proved that these weren’t just random pound dogs.

It certainly looks like the police don't have warrants here. The question then becomes if some exception to the warrant requirement applies to make the cheek swab reasonable.

It also may be that the officers are only getting cheek swabs when they arrest someone. If [more...]
