That could represent a conflict of interest for the professors, who are involved in personal private ventures in genetic testing and personalized medicine. Direct-to-consumer genetics products, now being offered by private firms such as 23 And Me, have raised a number of issues. For $499, you can have your DNA analyzed, which will tell you how likely you are to contract certain diseases. However, many federal agencies object to the procedure, saying that it is still in its infancy and has not proven reliable. The FDA does not sanction genetic testing. The American Medical [more...]

Leading Edge DNA Sequencing Method Nets Major NIH
Described in the May 12 online edition of Nano Letters, their novel, highly efficient, optically-based method to detect single DNA molecules in nanopores could significantly reduce the cost of DNA sequencing and the time required to sequence a complete human genome. “We are the first to employ optical detection from individual nanopores, and this allows us to probe multiple pores simultaneously using a single high-speed CCD camera,” said Meller, referring to the charge-coupled devices that science and medical researchers use to obtain high quality images. “As a result, our method can [more...]

The Genographic Project, launched in April 2005, is a five-year genetic anthropology study that aims to map historical human migration patterns by collecting and analyzing DNA samples from hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. Field researchers at 10 regional centers around the world collect DNA samples from indigenous populations. The company also sells self-testing kits: for US$100 anyone in the world can order a self-testing kit from which a mouth scraping (buccal swab) is obtained, analyzed and the DNA information placed on an Internet accessible database.

How Fingerprinting Helps In DNA Paternity Testing
This form of fingerprinting method is also known as DNA profiling. Using this technique, the individuals are identified on the basis of their unique DNA profiles. This DNA profiling is done by analyzing the VNTR sequences. It stands for variable number tandem repeats. This sequence is found to be different in individuals except in twins. As per the facts mentioned above, the DNA samples of the child will exhibit the similar VNTR loci as that of their parents. This fingerprinting helps in identifying that whether the known father of a child is genuinely his biological dad. In fact, it is [more...]

Question by b3th: what properties of DNA allow it to be analyzed using gel electrophoresis? Best answer: Answer by dpfw16 The main property would be it’s negative charge and, secondarily, it’s size. The DNA is positively charged, so during gel electrophoresis, you apply a current and the DNA moves toward the negative electrode (opposites attract). Also, as DNA moves, smaller pieces move faster than larger pieces, so you get spreading out (this is assuming the DNA is cut up- if it’s whole, then the entire piece will run as one piece). So, that’s why I answered negative charge and, [more...]
