DNA contributes to human gene expression

DNA contributes to human gene expression   Source: Cell Press   The last Neanderthal died 40,000 years ago, but much of their genome lives on, in bits and pieces, through modern humans. The impact of Neanderthals’ genetic contribution has been uncertain. Researchers now report evidence that Neanderthal DNA sequences still influence how genes are turned […]

BIOTECH DESIGNED BIOGAS PLANTS IN WHICH MOSQUITOES WILL NOT GROW

BIOTECH, an Organisation formulating and implementing new projects for decentralised waste treatment, had designed yet another improved waste treatment biogas plant. In the waste treatment biogas plants, now being commonly used it is usually observed that mosquitoes are multiplying in large numbers and laying eggs in the narrow space existing between the gas holder and [...]

Making a Hybrid

Making a Hybrid The team of researchers from Stanford University and the University of Tokyo first genetically modified rats so their offspring wouldn’t develop a pancreas. Then, when these rats conceived, they injected pancreas-building mouse stem cells into the rat embryos, which yielded a rat with a mouse pancreas. Once the rats had grown and their organs were […]

Grown in one species, organ transplant helps cure other

An interspecies transplant turned out to be an effective cure in diabetic mice, bringing the prospect of growing made-to-order human organs in other species a bit closer to reality. It’s the first time that small parts of an organ, in this case pancreatic cells called islets, grown inside one species were transplanted into another species to successfully treat a […]
