The genome represents the entire genetic information stored in the chromosomes of an organism. It enables the fertilized egg (i.e. the zygote) or an embryonic stem cell to complete development into an adult organism containing all organs, physiological functions and structures necessary for living and reproduction. This genetic information is maintained ...

“Ten years ago publication of the human genome sequence gave the world a blueprint for a human being. But just as a list of automobile parts does not tell us how a car engine works, the complete genome sequence—a list of the DNA "letters" in all the chromosomes of the human cell—did not reveal how the genome directs our cells' day-to-day activities ...

Stefan Janusz reports on how genes are poised for transcription. A publication by researchers at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre (Genome Function Group) has shown that genes supposedly hidden from transcriptional machinery can still be poised and ready to be expressed. [...] March 2010 Stefan Janusz reports on how genes are poised for transcription A ...

Our genome, our DNA, has taken a central place in our daily life, whether we think about our health, our well-being and longevity, our susceptibility to disease, our aptitude for learning, and our adaptation and responses to diet, drugs and the environment. Yet despite having successfully sequenced the full human genome, it is not enough to make sense ...

Have you ever wondered how your genome works? Well, thanks to scientists like Roger Kornberg, awarded the 2006 Nobel prize for Chemistry, who has painstakingly studied the micromechanics of transcription, we're getting a much clearer picture of what happens inside the nucleus, and how the billions [...] Scanning electron microscope shows up beads ...

Dr Lindsey Goff explores the effects of parenting on our molecular heritage. You could say that parenting begins at conception, when a unique mélange of DNA is born. This genetic mélange – your genome – is one of the few permanencies in life. It grows older with you and, except when mutated [...] June 2010 Dr Lindsey Goff explores the effects ...

Personal genome sequencing companies have taken advantage of the decrease in the cost of DNA sequencing and the emergence of new sequencing technologies (which are in fact used by many EpiGeneSys labs), making it possible for anyone willing to spend a couple of thousand dollars to have their entire genome sequenced. But are you ready for all of that ...
