The Relationship Between Gene Mutation and Dementia

Recently, a thesis published in nature revealed that how does the genetic mutation lead to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS)and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). The researchers found that the change of C9orf72 will make RNA molecular disrupt the transport of protein. This will lead to a traffic jam in the molecular of external cell nucleus of brain and […]

RNA Class:The Classification of RNA

Ribose Nucleic Acid, also named RNA, is the intermediary of DNA and protein. Compared with DNA, RNA has less molecular-weight but more classification.With the development of all kinds of research, scientists found that RNA plays an important role in the evolution of life. I hope this article can share basic knowledge with you and can […]

Why Genotyping Service of CD Genomics is Dependable for You?

Genotyping, also known as Genotypic assay, is widely used in population genetics and forensic medicine. This is a technology which use biological methods to detect Individual genotype. The methods contain PCR, DNA fragmentation assay, ASO probes, gene sequencing and so on. In the early stage researchers use Southernblots method to do genotyping, but it is […]

The Past and Future of GM Food:Prohibition or Not

(GM corps, more easily storage and full particles) The world is crazy again about GM food, not for it’s ability of increasing production or retaining freshness this time, but for a prohibition of GM crops from Scottish Government. The news was announced on 9th August. The Cabinet Secretary gave their reason of this ban: “Scotland […]

Rare Cell Types Were Discoverd by Single-cell mRNA Sequencing

Recently, researchers form Netherlands announced that they developed a new algorithm named RaceID and conbined this RaceID with sequencing datas of transcriptome, then they found some rare cell types in intestine. This is meaningful for our understanding of tissue biology and the formation of cells in tissues. Traditional methods of finding cells or isolating subpopulation […]

CD Inventory: Relationship between lnc RNA and Disease

Lnc RNA, also known as the long non-coding RNA, is a kind of RNA with over 200nt transcript which do not encode protein. It was judged as a “noise” in transcriptomics until 2007, but now well-known as it’s ability of regulating gene expression on transcription, epigenetic and post-transcriptional regulation. And it is related to many […]

The Brief Introduction of Sequencing History: Sequencing in 21st Century

As we already have a general view on the early stage of DNA Sequencing, It’s time to start the stage of rapid development in 21st century. This is a period from quantitative changes to qualitative changes, not only for the sequencing technology, but also for the application of it. The development of DNA Sequencing is […]

The Brief Introduction of Sequencing History: Sequencing in 20th Century

DNA Sequencing is the analysis of specific base sequences. The rapid sequencing method greatly promotes the development of biological science and medical science. It plays an important role in basic biology research, and many other fields such as diagnostics, biotechnology, forensic biology and biosystematics. Since the first time Walter Gilbert found chemical degradation method and […]

Obesity Related Genes

Yesterday one of my friends complained again that she had gain ten pounds last month. She said she was 167 pounds now and sometimes she even feels hard to walk. Obesity is a global problem. Many people is struggling to loose weight but still can not find an effective way. They keep diet, exercise, and […]

$120 Million-Investment For CRISPR Technology From Bill Gates and Other 13 Investors

An article published in Forbes in the morning yesterday is undoubtedly a big bomb for biotechnology. Our genius IT CEO Bill Gates and his friends decided to put their hands to “The Genesis Engine”, the new favorite of DNA editing in the lab, CRISPR. They poured $120 Million, as the title of this article said, […]
