Steve Talbott's genomic dynamite (What's Wrong with the World)
How could we hold our heads up with high-browed, post simian dignity when, as the New Scientist reported in 2003, “chimps are human”? If the DNA of the two species is nearly the same, and if, as most everyone seemed to believe, DNA is destiny, what remained to make us special? Such was the fretting on the human side, anyway. To be truthful, the chimps didn’t seem much interested. And their disinterest, it turns out, was far more fitting than our angst. The bulk of the essay is given to careful explication of the inadequacies of the long-regnant genomic model to explain gene expression. [more...]

Whose Baby is it? More Dads Seek DNA Tests
Metropolis Healthcare, the only private lab in the city so far to provide DNA paternity tests, has been getting eight to 10 cases a month. “Infidelity is one of the main reasons behind men asking for this test,’’ said Dr Nisha Ahmad, of Metropolis Labs. “Abroad though, the primary reason is a possible mixing up of babies.’’ She said there are a lot of inquiries about the tests. “Many who approach us for the test are not from the city,’’ she said. Experts also attribute the rise in paternity tests to more couples seeking the help of assisted reproductive methods. Clinics [more...]

CultureLab: Mapping the mountain of human DNA
Christine Kenneally, contributor TO AN outsider, the Human Genome Project looks like a scientific Everest: people counting genes just because they are there. For those of us not drawn to data-mountains, the gap between the project's usefulness and the grand promises of its early days is striking. Now, 10 years since the first draft sequence was revealed, a widespread debate has arisen about its impact. Into the fray steps veteran science writer Victor McElheny. His Drawing the Map of Life is an in-depth chronicle of the project that moves from the nascent genetic questions of 1970s biology, [more...]

Scientists are hoping that a new DNA database for dogs will help track — and prosecute — people who breed dogs to fight, reports KQED radio. Advocates say there’s a risk that the DNA records could be used against the dogs, or against people who adopt them. The idea is to have a canine version of the FBI’s CODIS — a database of human DNA that is used to connect criminals to crime scenes. In this case, the DNA might help prove that breeders supplied dogs to a dogfighting ring. In a Missouri case, DNA samples from dogs proved that these weren’t just random pound dogs.
