The Human DNA Debate

An immense federal project that involved 440 scientists from 32 laboratories from around the world, a project known as ENCODE, concluded that 80% of the library of human genes (known as the human genome) is biologically functional.  The results of ENCODE ...

Scientists identify a gene that controls the timing of precisely ordered events during maturation

C. elegans is a tiny transparent worm that has proven to be a powerhouse model for understanding animal development.

Gene that mediates ageing identified

:In what could point towards the possibility of one day using therapeutics to combat ageing, researchers have found in animal models that a single gene plays a surprising role in ageing that can be detected early in development.

Quotes

"We haven't been designed. We've evolved and that's a messy"
"You would need to look at less than a tenth of the genome and that could speed up the ability to track down the genetic changes" said Chris Ponting of the Medical Research Council's Functional Genomics Unit at Oxford University, as quoted by The Telegraph
Dr. Pascale Fanen from INSERM 955, Hopital Henri Mondor in Creteil, France has also studied CFTR mutations. He told Reuters Health by email, "It reinforces what people, having a long time experience in the genetic field of CF, were knowing. The CFTR gene mutations are responsible of a wide range of phenotypes, and include CFTR mutations such as R74W, R75Q, and double mutant D1270N together with R74W. In fact, we find these mutations frequently and in the routine diagnosis of CF."
"We don't think our figure is actually too different from what you would get looking at Encode's bank of data using the same definition for functional DNA" he added. Endi
