SpringerProtocols: Abstract: The State-of-the-Art of Chromatin ...
The biological significance of interactions of nuclear proteins with DNA in the context of gene expression, cell differentiation, or disease has immensely been enhanced by the advent of chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP). ChIP is a technique whereby a protein of interest is selectively immunoprecipitated from a chromatin preparation to determine the DNA sequences associated with it. ChIP has been widely used to map the localization of post-translationally modified histones, histone variants, transcription factors, or chromatin-modifying enzymes on the genome or on a given locus. In [more...]

Technology Review: A Portable DNA Detector
A new portable DNA analyzer performs real-time analysis of blood samples left at the scene of a crime. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, developed the device, which packs microfluidics, electronics, optics, and chemical detection technology into a single briefcase-sized unit. "While previous groups have developed lab-on-a-chip systems, none of them have succeeded in making a completely portable, robust system that can be used at a scene," says team leader Richard Mathies. On-site CSI: After a blood sample is collected from the scene of a crime, this briefcase-sized [more...]

What are gel elctrophoresis and DNA microarray? How is each used ...
Question by neonpinkispink: What are gel elctrophoresis and DNA microarray? How is each used in the study of genetics? Best answer: Answer by brainybroad269 Gel electrophoresis is the use of a gel to separate pieces of DNA (or RNA, or protein) under an electric field. The simplest form separates pieces by size. More complex (2-dimensional) techniques can separate proteins by size and charge. A DNA microarray is a collection of short DNA sequences (“oligonucleotides”) immobilized on a piece of glass or other support (the “gene chip”). When you incubate the chip with your experimental [more...]

Fast forensic test can match suspects' DNA with crime samples in 4 ...
To increase the speed of forensic DNA testing, the scientists built a chip that can copy and analyze DNA samples taken from a cotton swab. Forensic technicians can collect DNA from suspects by swabbing their mouth, mixing the sample with a few chemicals, and warming it up. The DNA-testing-lab-on-a-chip does the rest. The entire process takes only four hours at present. Hopwood and Zenhausern teams are already optimizing it and reducing the cycle time down to two hours. Once that is done, police could even double-check their DNA evidence before releasing a suspect. Source : American Chemical [more...]

20000 Genes Under the Brain: Genes->Brain->Man
To assess gene expression in each small bit of tissue, researchers expose its RNA to a gene chip, or DNA microarray. These small devices are coated with clusters of identical DNA molecules, called probes, within separate areas. Each probe binds to the RNA of a specific gene—the one that contains a complementary set of chemical units, or bases. In a DNA molecule, the base adenine (A) sticks to thymine (T), and guanine (G) pairs with cytosine (C). Thus, the sequence that would bind to the strand illustrated above is (from top to bottom): T, C, C, T, G, C, A. In this way, a chip records which [more...]

State labs chip away at DNA testing backlog | California Watch
California law enforcement agencies have received $43 million in federal cash since 2004 to reduce the state’s DNA testing backlog. That figure – from the U.S. Justice Department’s DNA Initiative – is far more than any other state collected, with Texas coming in second with $30 million in funding. Not everyone’s a proponent of such efforts. Christopher Heaney and Sara Huston Katsanis, researchers at Duke University’s Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy, argue that targeting arrestees' DNA can be a misallocation of resources that, interestingly, ensures more money in the [more...]
