In Cancer, One Ring To Rule Them All

Imagine that a machine draws your blood, screens it for genetic mutations and chemical variations that can cause cancer, and then pops out a drug tailor-made for your DNA. The hypothetical drug would target and fix the point irregularities which have accumulated over time that can lead to the formation of tumors — and cancer. "Personalized cancer drug delivery? Depending on the approach, it could be as soon as 10 to 15 years away," says Viterbi professor Andrea Armani , an assistant professor of the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science. Armani has received [more...]

Fayette Life: Fruitful DNA Extraction

What do strawberries and bananas have in common with Fayette County's Whitewater Middle School students? The answer is DNA. As it turns out, the genetic material of the fruits is very similar to that of humans. This was just one fascinating fact that approximately 290 seventh graders learned as they participated in a DNA extraction lab conducted by graduate students from the Georgia Plant Scholars Program of the University of Georgia’s (UGA) Plant Pathology Department. Using regular household items such as coffee filters, salt, dishwashing liquid, water and rubbing alcohol, students learned [more...]

Bill Seeks to Prevent DNA Collection by CSU Schools - The Daily ...

The bill claims that the collection of students' DNA poses "unique challenges to protecting individual privacy." UC Berkeley professors have voiced similar concerns. Kimberly TallBear, assistant professor of science, technology and environmental policy, said she is against the program because she said it inadequately informs students about the ethics and consent involved in DNA sampling. She said many of her colleagues share her concern and even held a meeting with the program's directors.

Cheap DNA test diagnoses genetic diseases | TG Daily

Quick, cheap gene tests for many diseases could be just around the corner, with the development of a DNA test that works on a drop of saliva. "This technology offers a speedy, cost-efficient alternative to existing methods of DNA analysis," says Dr Juan Diaz-Mochon of Edinburgh University's School of Chemistry. "Our method could help reach the goal of complete genome analysis in a few hours for less than $1,000." The researchers say that the test, based on chemical analysis, delivers reliable results without the need for expensive enzymes used in conventional DNA testing. It's successfully [more...]
