ISPUB - What's There In Our Genes? A Case For A More Inclusive And ...
We need better reviews, use of both qualitative and quantitative data as well as much more rigorous testing of newer and older models. Only then may we make full use of this large amount of data that has already been collected over the years. What we have described here, for now, presents part of the picture seen from the Indian subcontinent as an example. However, this situation is probably true of other parts of the world as well, perhaps even those areas where it has been assumed that the data is likely to be homogenous. Thus, even biological anthropologists need to add new sensitivities [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...]

Do you want to live forever? Scientist may have figured out how…
The ends of the chromosomes are capped by telomeres, long thought to have a protective function. Without them, the chromosomes would be shortened during each cell division, because DNA polymerase is unable to copy to the very end of one of the two DNA strands it is replicating. In the early 1980s, after their fortuitous meeting at a Gordon Research Conference in 1980, Blackburn and Szostak discovered that telomeres include a specific DNA sequence. Fired up by the novelty of each other's work, they devised experiments that seemed crazy at the time, even to themselves. Szostak took [more...]

Mother of All Humans Lived 6000 Years Ago
Further, for so few--only 21.6 nucleotides out of 16,569--DNA differences to have accumulated at anything near the measured mutation rates, a much shorter time than "200,000 years" must have transpired since Mitochondrial Eve arrived on the scene. To stretch out across evolutionary time the occurrences of so few DNA changes requires a gymnastic juggling of the coefficients used in the various models, and appears to require a biologically unrealistic, super-slow mutation rate. Making the data fit vast timescales requires the use of a broken, circular-reasoning-based, evolutionary [more...]

While working at the National Institutes of Health in the early 1990s, Venter developed a way to rapidly discover genes by exploiting snippets of DNA called expressed sequence tags. In 1992, he founded The Institute for Genomic Research, and, three years later, he and a team decoded the first genome of a free-living organism. That led to Venter’s best-known breakthrough, mapping the human genome. Last May, he achieved a defining moment in the history of biology when he inserted digitally created DNA into a living bacterium, forming the first synthetic life.

One Hundred Years Later….Eye Color Genes “Visualized”
Understanding the inheritance of eye color has been a challenge for decades.

"Eye Colors in Man," from The Trait Book, ERO Bulletin No. 6, by Charles B. Davenport, 1912 (Archive Image #1913) Davenport and other eugenicists oversimplified eye-color inheritance early in the last century, and we have since come to discover that several genes determine eye color. Recently, a group in the Netherlands has taken our understanding a step further by using [more...]

Steve Talbott's genomic dynamite (What's Wrong with the World)
How could we hold our heads up with high-browed, post simian dignity when, as the New Scientist reported in 2003, “chimps are human”? If the DNA of the two species is nearly the same, and if, as most everyone seemed to believe, DNA is destiny, what remained to make us special? Such was the fretting on the human side, anyway. To be truthful, the chimps didn’t seem much interested. And their disinterest, it turns out, was far more fitting than our angst. The bulk of the essay is given to careful explication of the inadequacies of the long-regnant genomic model to explain gene expression. [more...]
