Flagship DNA facility sets sights on advances in science

Scientists are marking the opening of the first fully automated DNA production facility in the UK. The Edinburgh Genome Foundry will design, build and test large sections of DNA – the building blocks of life – using large-scale robotic processes. Researchers at the facility are seeking to create and modify long strands of DNA that can be used to equip cells or organisms with new or...

Expanding the DNA alphabet: 'extra' DNA base found to be stable in mammals

A rare DNA base, previously thought to be a temporary modification, has been shown to be stable in mammalian DNA, suggesting that it plays a key role in cellular function. Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Babraham Institute have found that a naturally occurring modified DNA base appears to be stably incorporated in the DNA of many mammalian tissues, possibly...
