Obese? Apple or pear shaped? It may be your genes [ WORLD BULLETIN ...

In the first of two studies published in the journal Nature Genetics on Sunday, the scientists identified 13 new gene regions where variations in DNA sequence can be linked to whether a person is are apple-shaped or pear-shaped. Most of these variations have a markedly stronger effect in women than in men, they said. Apples and pears Previous studies have found that where we store fat in our bodies can affect our health. More fat around the waist -- being apple-shaped -- is linked with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, while having a fat bum and thighs -- being [more...]

Curious About Your DNA? Just Stop By Walgreens - Better Health

San Diego based startup Pathway Genomics announced  that it will begin selling its DNA collection kits at Walgreens drugstores beginning in mid-May, for about $20 to $30. Unlike a pregnancy test, users won’t be able to get results immediately. They will have to send in their saliva sample and then go to Pathway’s website to select the particular test they want. Users choose from drug response ($79), which assesses how well an individual can metabolize certain drugs, predicting the best dosage for that person or whether they will be susceptible to certain side effects; [more...]

New Device Will Slash Time for DNA Analysis | UANews.org

"Our DNA analysis platform is a fully automated system that doesn't require any human intervention," Zenhausern said. "You load the specimen in a cartridge that can contain all the necessary reagents for processing a sample and place it in the instrument, close the instrument and push a button on the computer, which will control all processing and analysis steps for generating data that can then be loaded in a DNA expert software system for identifying a human profile and matching an offender. That's it." The center developed the technology for the device and designed it for use by law [more...]

Where in the World is Zehra?: An Open Letter to Hebrew University

It has been brought to my attention that Professor Maya Kahanoff was recently let go from The Hebrew University on the grounds of her personal politics; it was made clear that her lifetime of knowledge on peace and understanding were no longer welcome at your university. As a student who was also made to feel unwelcome at The Hebrew University, I find this news incredibly painful, as Maya Kahanoff was a source of inspiration to everyone who met her; she personally touched me and completely transformed my educational experience at your institution.

Article Snack » Where To Learn More About Proof Of Paternity

Using the coming of DNA testing these days, paternity can be established with almost 100% accuracy. Except for identical twins, your DNA is as distinctive as your fingerprint. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) denotes your genetic makeup like the color of your hair and eyes, skin color, height, and others. The youngster gets 50% of his DNA from his mum and also the other half derives from his dad. Comparing the child’s DNA with that in the biological mom will get rid of the genes inherited from her. What remains are the DNA of the father. A comparison of probes between the father, mother and [more...]

Biosensors: Morpholino offers you more

Molecular biologists and geneticists often use DNA microarrays to detect DNA, measure gene expression levels and detect the single-nucleotide polymorphisms that are responsible for various genetic diseases. A DNA microarray has tens of thousands of biosensors on its surface; each biosensor contains a short DNA fragment, known as a probe, for recognizing DNA targets. Ideally, the DNA biosensor should have high sensitivity (the ability to detect very low concentrations of targets), high specificity (the ability to distinguish the difference between similar targets) and high stability (the [more...]

In figuring out if the presumed parents are genuine biological ones or in determining actual biological mother or father-child bond, subjects undergo parental screening.

Pitt Chronicle » Blocking DNA Repair Protein Could Lead to ...

Patients carry a gene mutation that stops production of a protein called ATM kinase, which spurs other proteins involved in normal cell division, DNA repair, and cell death. Radiation causes DNA mutations during the process of cell division, when genetic material is copied for a new cell to form. The cell has repair pathways that include checkpoints to look for errors as well as methods to repair them, but if enough mutations accumulate, the cell could become cancerous or self-destruct. A-T patients, who lack the kinase, have a higher risk for developing cancer, Bakkenist said. Bakkenist and [more...]
