Discovery of Susceptibility Gene ETV6 and Its Common Genetic Variants in the New Colorectal Cancer

Genome-wide association study (GWAS) is a kind of method to detect all or most of the genes among different individuals in specific species and to understand the genetic variation between different individuals. Many susceptibility genes and loci have been found in colorectal cancer using the GWAS method, but there are still many unknown susceptibility genes […]

CD Genomics Released A New Technology Called Single Cell Sequencing

Jun 7, 2016, single cell transcription and methylation analysis have become the powerful tools for single cell research. However, it is difficult to reveal the direct correlation between DNA methylation and gene expression in single cells. This is because there is a large difference between the cells, and we can not detect a cell’s transcription […]

Scientists Have Discovered A New Tumor Suppressor Gene

A common tumor suppressor gene was found in the patients with acute leukemia (AL). The finding reveals its synergistic effect between function abnormalities and a variety of different carcinogenic gene, providing an important foundation for research and development of novel leukemia treatment. Researchers found the transfer functional MLL – NRIP3 carcinogenic gene and SETD2 genetic […]

Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2015: DNA Repair is the High Light

After Youyou Tu won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, thousands of people focus on the chemistry prize. Who will take this honor? Early the morning of Wednesday, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the 2015 Nobel Prize went for three scientists: Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich and Aziz Sancar. They won this prize […]

Interesting Genetics: “Genetically Modified”Butterflies

With the development of genetic technology, you are no stranger to transgenic animals. But here I’m not talking about the gene editing technology of human beings, I’m taking about the “gene editing” of nature. You may be confused because it seems like the word “ gene editing” is something patent of human beings. We are […]

Improvement of Nanopore Sequencing: The Accuracy Was Greatly Improved

As a new technology of sequencing, the biggest advantage of nanopore is its low cost. Compared to other sequencing technology, such as sanger sequencing and next generation sequencing, the nanopore sequencing does not need any fluorescein for purification, and the process of DNA amplification is also unnecessary. It can save both money and time. Besides, […]

The Biggest Amount of Whole Genome Sequence Data Was Published

Recently, the research about the whole genome sequencing of the biggest population was published in Nature. It described the source and the application of the data. The rare variant is the transformation carried in DNA. It is not common, but important to many diseases. To find out the relationship between rare variants and disease and […]

New Discovery about CRISPR: Treatment of SCD

Recently, researchers form Dana-Farber found that a small change of DNA can avoid some genetic defects of SCD, this research was published on nature on September 16. Sickle cell disease is a kind of genetic disease, which is caused by the mutation of hemoglobin. This disease is common in Africa, and also takes place in […]

Iphone Press Conference: Highlights of Medical function

Last week, Apple Inc announced it’s new products for this season. Many things make “iFans” crazy: the newest software(ios9), the newest color(rose gold), and the bigger RAM. But the most attractive thing for me is it’s new function of medical function. Apple Watch: Health Management The Airstrip of WatchOS 2.0 is faced for the application of medical use, […]

Will This Be a Fashion:Find Your Gene Sequence in the APP Store?

The prevalence of iphone not only makes Steve Jobs famous, but also promotes the development of app store and business on mobile internet. It gradually replaces the web business and becomes the most popular business mode. If you don’t know the place for dinner, just take out your phone and check on the guidance on […]
