Wheat Sequencing Consortium makes data resource available to researchers

Following the January 2016 announcement of the production of a whole genome assembly for bread wheat, the  International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium  (IWGSC), having completed quality control, is now making this breakthrough resource available for researchers via the  IWGSC wheat sequence repository at URGI-INRA-Versailles, France  . Wheat...

New method to generate extended data for genome assemblies

Scientists at The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) have developed a new library construction method for genome sequencing that can simultaneously construct long-range data with reduced DNA input, time and cost. Long range genetic data (long mate pair – LMP) is an invaluable source for plant, crop and animal genetic research. Sequencing genomes requires breaking them into small manageable...

Why do duplicate genes remain in the genome?

Geneticists at Trinity College Dublin have made a major breakthrough with important implications for understanding the evolution of genomes in a variety of organisms. They found a mechanism sought for more than four decades that explains how gene duplication leads to novel functions in individuals. Gene duplication is a biological phenomenon that leads to the sudden emergence of new...

Deletion of any single gene could provoke mutations elsewhere in genome

Johns Hopkins researchers have found that the deletion of any single gene in yeast cells puts pressure on the organism’s genome to compensate, leading to a mutation in another gene. Their discovery, which is likely applicable to other organisms' genetics because of the way DNA is conserved across species, could have significant consequences for the way genetic analysis is done in other areas...

Decoding the Genome of the Camel

By sequencing the genome of a Bactrian camel, researchers at the Vetmeduni Vienna have made a significant contribution to population genetic research on camels. The study has laid the foundation for future scientific work on these enigmatic desert animals. A blood sample from a single Bactrian camel called "Mozart" provided the genetic raw material for the work, which was...
