Genetics

  • From Science's Online Daily News Site

    ScienceNOW reported recently that young mollusks maturing in slightly warmer and more acidic seawater can't calcify their shells, the "placebo effect" may work even if patients know they are taking fake pills, people rely on the eyes to judge whether a face has a mind behind it, and DNA from an ancient finger bone has confirmed the discovery of a new type of human, among other stories.

  • Integrative Analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans Genome by the modENCODE Project

    Extensive analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome reveals regions highly occupied by multiple transcription factors.

  • Identification of Functional Elements and Regulatory Circuits by Drosophila modENCODE

    The Drosophila modENCODE project demonstrates the functional regulatory network of flies.

  • Genetic Analysis Points the Way to Individualized PSA Tests

    Some men with high levels of prostate-specific antigen don't have prostate cancer, leading to unnecessary biopsies, and some with low PSA levels do. This week, a group in Iceland suggests individualizing healthy and high levels for each man tested by focusing on genetic variants that affect PSA levels.

  • The Runners-Up

    This year's runners-up for Breakthrough of the Year include a synthetic genome, the Neandertal genome, next-generation genomics, souped-up cellular reprogramming, exome sequencing, quantum simulators, molecular dynamics simulations, knockout rats, and HIV prophylaxis.
