Kinked nanopores slow DNA passage for easier sequencing
(Nanowerk News) In an innovation critical to improved DNA sequencing, a markedly slower transmission of DNA through nanopores has been achieved by a team led by Sandia National Laboratories researchers. Solid-state nanopores sculpted from silicon dioxide are generally straight, tiny tunnels more than a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. They are used as sensors to detect and characterize DNA, RNA and proteins. But these materials shoot through such holes so rapidly that sequencing the DNA passing through them, for example, is a problem. In a paper published this week [more...]

DNA test favors Va. man convicted of rape - Maryland Daily Record
DNA tests conducted under Virginia’s one-of-a-kind post-conviction DNA testing program indicate that a man who served seven years in prison for a 1979 rape didn’t commit the crime, and he wants Virginia’s high court to declare him innocent. Calvin Wayne Cunningham would be the eighth man exonerated by decades-old biological evidence and the third since Virginia began its massive project to clear those who may have been wrongly convicted in the 1970s and 1980s from biological evidence saved before DNA testing was available. Cunningham, 57, was convicted in 1981 of raping the [more...]

Evolution News & Views: "Junk" DNA: Darwinism's Last Stand?
In 1980, Francis Crick and Leslie Orgel argued in Nature that "much DNA in higher organisms is little better than junk." The spread of junk DNA in the course of evolution "can be compared to the spread of a not-too-harmful parasite within its host." Since it is unlikely that such DNA has a function, "it would be folly in such cases to hunt obsessively for one." In a companion article, W. Ford Doolittle and Carmen Sapienza similarly argued that many organisms contain "DNAs whose only 'function' is survival within genomes," and that "the search for other explanations may prove, if not [more...]

Immigration Testing Is Easy Using DNA
Immigration testing has become simpler, faster and more accurate thanks to DNA testing. It is relatively easy to determine if the person applying for citizenship based on family ties is related by using a legal immigration test. It comes down to a simple question, can you prove that you are related to someone who is currently a citizen of that country? It is not uncommon that a parent would come to the United States and work for many years sending money home to take care of the children and family members. When that person becomes a citizen there are various programs and options to apply for [more...]
