SIUC researcher part of NSF 'tree of life' project

A key aspect of the study will involve researchers from all over the world in a scientific community-based DNA sequencing project. The researchers are asking fellow scientists everywhere to send Anderson and others interesting samples of annelids for DNA sequencing. In his laboratory at SIUC, Anderson routinely does such work, turning around a sample in just a couple of days. SIUC doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students will assist in the work, gaining invaluable research experience in the process. Anderson will enter all the information into a database, which eventually will be [more...]

Kazakhs Striving to Prove Genghis Khan Descent -- Signs of the ...

Arman Ahmuhanov, a 39-year-old horse trader from Almaty, recently sent a sample to FamilytreeDNA, a company in Houston, after being encouraged to do so by Chingizids' author Gizat Tabuldin. "He said 'If you want to be respected, and you want to know that you are really chingizid , then you have to have real proof,'" said Mr Amerkulov. Genghis Khan's conquest of a vast swathe of Eurasia has made his name synonymous with destruction and brutality in Europe and the Middle East, but in Kazakhstan and Mongolia he is a hero. Since Kazakhstan's independence in 1991, the [more...]

DNA Evidence Clears 2 Men After 30 Years - Crime in the News ...

They confessed to rape and murder. They pleaded guilty and went to prison for decades; but they were innocent and DNA evidence proved it last week. On September 16, a judge in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, overturned the convictions of two of the three men serving time for the rape and murder of Eva Gail Patterson, in 1979. The third man, Larry Ruffin, died in prison in 2002. The Innocence Project organized DNA testing for the three men. In petitions filed for Bobby Dixon and Phillip Bivens, (and in a separate one filed for Ruffin on September 15) attorneys asked the court to throw out the [more...]

The seriousness of the problem can be gleaned from the chief source of the heightened momentum for reform: the DNA testing which since 1989 has exonerated 258 men imprisoned after convictions for either rapes or murders, or both. More than 70 percent of those exonerated were convicted either solely or in large measure on the basis of their being mistakenly identified as the perpetrator by one or more eyewitness, according to The Innocence Project, the nonprofit legal clinic affiliated with Benjamin N.

DNA is a duplex, therefore the patient's DNA, labeled with a dye, will hybridize to DNA on the array. The investigators then treat the array with an enzyme called a mismatch endonuclease that will seek out and digest any places in the DNA duplexes that contain mismatches, thus identifying the mutation's location.  “You take someone’s genomic DNA, chop it up, label it using a florescent dye, and hybridize it to the microarray so that complementary features on the array can bind with the labeled DNA,” explained Manak. “Treatment with the enzyme results in cleavage at the mismatches, [more...]

How familial DNA can help crime victims

Using a familial DNA search, the crime lab compared the DNA left at the crime scenes with DNA samples in California's database of 1.3 million felons to search for near matches indicating possible relatives. The familial DNA search turned up 200 partial matches. Researchers then compared the Y chromosome (which is passed from father to son) found at the crime scene to the 200 partial matches. Only one result turned up: Franklin Jr.'s son, who had been convicted of a felony weapons charge. The police subsequently surveilled Franklin Jr. and directly connected him to the serial killings using [more...]
