They manufactured a new chromosome from artificial DNA in a test tube, then transferred it into an empty cell and watched it multiply – the very definition of being alive. The man-made single cell “creature”, which is a modified version of one of the simplest bacteria on earth, proves that the technology works. Now Dr Venter believes organism, nicknamed Synthia, will pave the way for more complex creatures that can transform environmental waste into clean fuel, vaccinate against disease and soak up pollution. But his development has also triggered debate over the ethics of “playing [more...]

Even the StarLink fiasco a decade ago, when an Aventis CropScience gene only approved for animal use got into Taco Bell taco shells that were sold in stores didn’t result in harm to people. There was some worry about butterfly populations being harmed, but that didn’t pan out. And there are cases where genetic modification of crops had big benefits. For instance, in preserving papaya crops.Much of the Hawaiian papaya crop is genetically modified to protect against a viral blight that almost wiped out crops a decade ago.

Popular Mechanics Posts 2010 BREAKTHROUGH Awards — The Gadgeteer
While working at the National Institutes of Health in the early 1990s, Venter developed a way to rapidly discover genes by exploiting snippets of DNA called expressed sequence tags. In 1992, he founded The Institute for Genomic Research, and, three years later, he and a team decoded the first genome of a free-living organism. That led to Venter’s best-known breakthrough, mapping the human genome. Last May, he achieved a defining moment in the history of biology when he inserted digitally created DNA into a living bacterium, forming the first synthetic life. His ultimate goal is to design [more...]

But the Army/Montana team, using a new software system developed by the military for analyzing proteins, uncovered a new DNA-based virus, and established a linkage to the fungus, called N. ceranae. The big breakthrough here was identifying the virus using the Army’s new software. In combination with the fungus, the new virus – dubbed IIV – was able to wipe out bee hives with 100% efficacy. Scientists are still not completely sure the sequence of events or even why this started happening to American honeybees and not Australian variants, for example.

Current thinking, inspired by the results five years ago from the Human Genome Project, is that the 6 billion humans alive today are 99.9% similar when it comes to genetic content and identity. But research published today in the journal Nature suggests we are genetically more diverse. The repercussions could be far-reaching [more...]

Part of the reason for this is if one decides to take into account the plethora of species-specific DNA insertions and deletions ("indels") that are present along any segment compared between chimp and human, the percentage of identity drops. Another reason is that duplications, inversions, translocations, and transpositions at all scales uniquely characterize the two genome sequences -- these have to be untangled before aligning the sequences in order to measure their similarity. Also, the 99% identity figure is often derived from protein-coding regions that only comprise about 1.5% of the [more...]
