|Unravelling arthropod genomic diversity over 500 million years of evolution|
Added: 25.01.2020 17:26 | 19 views | 0 comments
The evolutionary innovations of insects and other arthropods are as numerous as they are wondrous, from terrifying fangs and stingers to exquisitely colored wings and ingenious feats of engineering. DNA sequencing allows us to chart the genomic blueprints underlying this incredible diversity that characterizes the arthropods and makes them the most successful group of animals on Earth.
|'Jumping genes' help stabilize DNA folding patterns|

The DNA molecule inside the nucleus of any human cell is more than six feet long. To fit into such a small space, it must fold into precise loops that also govern how genes are turned on or off. New research indicates that 'jumping genes' play a surprising role in stabilizing the 3D folding patterns of the DNA molecule inside the cell's nucleus.

New research has highlighted the role domesticated animals -- both pets and livestock -- play in the spread of viruses among humans and wildlife. The study has revealed the patterns of how viruses are shared differs between the two major groups of RNA and DNA viruses.
|Immune cells drive gallstone formation|

Sticky meshworks of DNA and proteins extruded by white blood cells called neutrophils act as the glue that binds together calcium and cholesterol crystals during gallstone formation, researchers report. Both genetic and pharmacological approaches that inhibited the formation of these so-called neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) reduced the formation and growth of gallstones in mice.
|Big picture genetic scoring approach reliably predicts heart disease|

Polygenic risk scores -- genetic risk scores that take into account variations in a person's entire DNA -- are able to predict coronary artery disease in those who have not yet had heart attacks. Polygenic risk scores are not as accurate at predicting second heart attacks. With further research and refinement, polygenetic risk scores could help individualize and target lifestyle modifications and therapies aimed at preventing and managing heart disease.
