Cgr1, a ripe rot resistance QTL in Vitis amurensis ‘Shuang Hong’ grapevine

Construction of genetic map The cross-pollination (CP) model of JoinMap 4.0 was used to construct the genetic maps. Markers were segregated into different linkage groups by the ‘independence LOD’ function, and a LOD score of...

Comparative analysis of the transcriptomes of the calyx abscission zone of sweet orange insights...

Transcriptome profiling and identifying differentially expressed genes (DEGs) The transcriptomes of AZ-C from Dd, Rd, Dh, and Rh (Fig. 1a) were examined using the RNA-seq. Before RNA-sequencing analysis, CLas titer in AZ-C tissue was measured...

Australian kelpies are not related to dingoes, but why owners wanted them to be?

Kelpies are an iconic sheep herding dog breed. They were brought to Australia in the late 1800s from Scotland. However, two different variations of kelpie dog were developed in Australia – a working dog,...

Early genome catastrophes can cause non-smoking lung cancer

Some teenagers harbor catastrophic changes to their genomes that can lead to lung cancer later on in life, even if they never smoke Credit: KAIST Catastrophic rearrangements in...

IDT releases new ultra-high performance CRISPR Cas12a enzyme

May 31 2019 As an advocate for the needs of researchers working at the forefronts of genomic research, Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) releases its latest CRISPR enzyme Alt-R® Cas12a (Cpf1) Ultra. Cas12a Ultra is a...

3D organoid culture vital for segregating chromosomes

May 31 2019 AMSBIO reports on a recent published paper by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) investigating why epithelial cells grown in monolayers on a plastic dish are...

This Biotech Treats a Neurological Autoimmune Disorder Using DNA

We’re jumping into Poland this week. Pure Biologics is a biotech based in Wrocław developing DNA molecules that could treat the incurable neurological condition Devic’s disease with fewer side effects than existing treatments. Mission: To...

DNA origami to scale-up molecular motors

Researchers have successfully used DNA origami to make smooth-muscle-like contractions in large networks of molecular motor systems, a discovery which could be applied in molecular robotics. The microtubule network contracting in the presence of DNA...

Study details regulation of a multi-drug transporter

Vanderbilt University researchers have discovered how a protein pump distinguishes between chemicals that it will expel from a cell and inhibitors that block its action. The pump, called P-glycoprotein, protects cells by removing potentially harmful...

Mothers can transfer life-long protection against infection to infants by breastfeeding

Mothers can transfer life-long protection against infection to their infants by breastfeeding. This was the finding from new research in mice by an international team of scientists led by researchers at the University of...
