Scientists Discover RNA Modifications in Some Unexpected Places
The so-called central dogma of molecular biology-that DNA makes RNA which makes protein-has long provided a simplified explanation for how genetic information is deciphered and translated in living organisms. In reality, of course, the process is vastly more complicated than the schema first articulated nearly 60 years ago by Nobel Laureate Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA's double-helix structure.
Protein secrets of Ebola virus
The current Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa, which has claimed more than 2000 lives, has highlighted the need for a deeper understanding of the molecular biology of the virus that could be critical in the development of vaccines or antiviral drugs to treat or prevent Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Now, a team at the University of Virginia , USA A- under the leadership of Dr Dan Engel, a virologist, and Dr Zygmunt Derewenda, a structural biologist A- has obtained the crystal structure of a key protein involved in Ebola virus replication, the C-terminal domain of the Zaire Ebola virus nucleoprotein [Dziubanska et al. .

Jack the Ripper identity is revealed, but the JC cracked case years ago
New DNA evidence has revealed the identity of Jack the Ripper, one of history's most notorious serial killers, as a Jewish man named Aaron Kosminski. The Jewish immigrant from Poland, had long been considered a chief suspect in the grisly murders which took place in London's East End in 1888, but new claims assert that there is now definitive scientific proof.

New insights into signalling-pathway alterations in rhabdomyosarcoma
Several recent studies have shed new light on the alterations in signalling pathways and the downstream effects of these pathway alterations in RMS. Many of these effects converge on the fibroblast growth factor and insulin-like growth-factor pathways.
Sample-to-answer instruments: pros and cons
Molecular biology has its roots in the biochemistry laboratories of the 1960s and l970s; PCR was developed in the mid-1980s, and by 1990 was in widespread use in academic laboratory settings. Common clinical use of molecular diagnostic techniques lagged behind academic applications, and in many cases still does in the present day.

New gene mutations discovered for Wilms Tumor
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Medical Center, Dallas, have made significant progress in defining new genetic causes of Wilms tumor , a type of kidney cancer found only in children. "While most children with Wilms tumor are thankfully cured, those with more aggressive tumors do poorly, and we are increasingly concerned about the long-term adverse side effects of chemotherapy in Wilms tumor patients.

Russell Edwards Pens Book Called 'Naming Jack the Ripper'
Russell Edwards , a man who calls himself an "armchair detective," has allegedly identified the serial killer known as Jack the Ripper . In an article published in The Daily Mail , Edwards recounts how he teamed up with Jari Louhelainen , a molecular biology expert, and conducted DNA testing on a shawl that was found nearby one of the victim's bodies.

Targeting protein-making machinery to stop harmful bacteria
In an effort to kill harmful bacteria -- including so-called super-bugs -- many scientists have been focusing on the ribosomes, which manufacture a cell's proteins. But a biologist now is trying to stop those ribosomes from forming in the first place, and has, for the first time, isolated the middle steps in the process that forms the ribosomes.
Editing DNA could be genetic medicine breakthrough
A new way to make powerful changes at will to the DNA of humans, other animals and plants, much like how a writer changes words in a story, could usher in a transformation in genetic medicine. Scientists are not just excited about this recently discovered technique because it can snip and edit DNA with precision.
The Sand Trap

Has Jack the Ripper's identity finally been revealed?
For over a century the identity of notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper has baffled criminologists but modern DNA technology has finally solved the mystery, it has been claimed. Polish man Aaron Kosminski has been named as the killer behind the 1888 murders of at least five women in London's Whitechapel by a world renowned DNA expert.
