DNAction » Pathway Launches an Extended Carrier Status Screening ...

Traditionally, pregnancy-related genetic testing has been limited to prospective parents whose family history or ethnicity suggests that they may be at an increased risk for a particular genetic disease. One example of this is genetic screening for Tay-Sachs disease mutations in people of Ashkenazi Jewish origin. The problem with this approach is that it relies on self-reported ethnicity and family history, which can be incomplete or misleading. Additionally, the ethnic distribution and prevalence of many genetic disease-causing mutations is not known. The Simple Solution Using only a [more...]

In addition, price of screening will be lowered being a end result of competitors that allow it to be more affordable and less expensive software applications prices for public. It higher that individuals succumb for the solitude problems as screening requirements mass submission of DNA examples in to the database. Certainly, problems these kinds of as mass submission of examples could slow straight down the means of investigation of misdemeanors. As all personnel would make faults – we understand in [more...]

Genome-Wide DNA Methylation Maps in Follicular Lymphoma Cells ...

Methodology/Principal Findings We performed methylation-enriched genome-wide bisulfite sequencing of FL cells and normal CD19+ B-cells using 454 sequencing technology. The methylated DNA fragments were enriched with methyl-binding proteins, treated with bisulfite, and sequenced using the Roche-454 GS FLX sequencer. The total number of bases covered in the human genome was 18.2 and 49.3 million including 726,003 and 1.3 million CpGs in FL and CD19+ B-cells, respectively. 11,971 and 7,882 methylated regions of interest (MRIs) were identified respectively. The genome-wide distribution of these [more...]

Parasites are Everywhere!

DNA testing is now available to evaluate the contents of a stool sample, rather than relying on the imprecise method of a microscopic exam. And DNA testing has proven that it can literally find a needle in a haystack. Since DNA parasite analysis became available just over a year ago, it has shown to be an extremely valuable tool for helping to identify parasite infections seen in patients at the IBS Treatment Center. As a matter of practice we have always tested patients for parasites, but prior to the availability of DNA parasite testing, parasites were rarely diagnosed. DNA testing is [more...]

The database was developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at NIH. The human genome is made up of approximately 3 billion base pairs of DNA arranged into 46 chromosomes. In recent years, scientists have discovered that very large stretches of the genome — on the order of millions of base pairs of DNA — can be different in seemingly normal individuals. It had long been known that such large-scale genomic changes existed, but it was thought that they were rare and when present led to known disorders such as [more...]

Strange Justice

There is something to forensic science. The Innocence Project has won release of people wrongly convicted of crimes by demonstrating that DNA samples taken at the crime scenes did not match the DNA of the wrongly convicted people. (We see this often in murder and rape cases in which there is a lot of public pressure for police to solve the crimes.) Yet such methods are not confined to the defense. Prosecutors for years have enlisted DNA and other forensic devices to help gain convictions. For example, prosecutors used analysis of wood slivers to help convict Bruno Hauptmann more than 70 years [more...]

Reconstructing human appearance from DNA -- Signs of the Times News

This is a relatively robust, but not foolproof, gender test, according to Kayser. Hair colour prediction underway Beyond gender, the human traits with highest predictive accuracy are those affected by pigmentation, simply because they are the least complex. Red hair colour, which is determined by a single gene, can be predicted with a certainty of around 93%. For other hair types, accuracy is slightly lower, but still promising. Kayser reported confidence levels as high as 85, 81 and 80% for predicting black, brown and blond hair respectively. Perhaps the most progress has been made in [more...]

Chromosomal Microarray Analysis: Pros and Cons

Chromosomal Microarray Analysis: Pros and Cons Since the 1960s, the traditional way of screening for prenatal genetic disorders was through amniocentesis, an invasive procedure, which slightly increases the risk of miscarriage. A new method of genetic testing, called chromosomal microarray analysis, can detect submicroscopic genetic anomalies that other tests can not find. In this method, fetal DNA is obtained through a sample of a pregnant woman's blood. This technology is believed to be safer, faster and more accurate than the traditional, invasive test.
