Megan Smolenyak: A Funeral on My 50th | todaysjibe.com

The funeral was for Andrew Smolenyak, an uncle of my husband’s and of mine by marriage (In spite of the rarity of the surname, it’s a fluke that my husband and I were both born Smolenyaks, and DNA testing shows that our respective Smolenyak families are not related – a story for another time). His passing was a watershed within my husband’s family for several reasons. He was the last WWII vet, having been on board a ship off the coast of Japan and much relieved at the time of the Japanese surrender. He was the last of the ten siblings, bringing an entire generation to a close. And he [more...]

DNA polymerase λ (Pol λ) is a novel X-family DNA polymerase that shares a 34% sequence identity with DNA polymerase β. Pre-steady-state kinetic studies have shown that the Pol λ-DNA complex binds both correct and incorrect nucleotides 130-fold tighter, on average, than the DNA polymerase β-DNA complex, although the base substitution fidelity of both polymerases is 10(-)(4) to 10(-5). To better understand Pol λ’s tight nucleotide binding affinity, we created single-substitution and double-substitution mutants of Pol λ to disrupt the interactions between active-site [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.

Mitochondrial DNA Genealogy

The mitochondrial DNA genealogy is the study of a person’s mother’s family line of maternal ancestors. This DNA is passed down from mother to each of her children exactly as she has it, with no mutations, except in the very rare instances. Because of the traditions in our society of the wife taking her husband’s last name, a surname genealogy trace of the female line of the family tree is more difficult. On the flip side, since this DNA strand is more stable than the Y DNA, more conclusive results can be determined for the testing of it. The mt-DNA is sometimes referred to as the Full [more...]
