    Thursday Apr 20 | PhysOrg Weblog

    The value of intersecting the sequencing of individuals' exomes or full genomes to find rare genetic variants-on a large scale-with their detailed electronic health record information has "myriad benefits, including the illumination of basic human biology, the early identification of preventable and treatable illnesses, and the identification and validation of new therapeutic targets," wrote Daniel J. Rader, MD, chair of the Department of Genetics, in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, in Science this week, with Scott M. Damrauer, MD, an assistant professor of Surgery at Penn and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Philadelphia.

    Thursday Apr 20 | The Daily Millbury

    Which parts are most likely to be inherited? Examining 3-D face models of nearly 1,000 female twins, researchers have found that the shapes of the end of the nose, the area above and below the lips, cheekbones and the inner corner of the eye are highly influenced by genetics. "The notion that our genes control our face is self-evident.

    Could we soon be living in a world where Jurassic Park is a real thing? It appears scientists learned nothing from that rather foreboding film, as a team of researchers at Yale University have managed to create chickens with dinosaur-like snouts, in yet another instance of man playing God . Indeed, these scientists have created chickens that resemble their ancient ancestors, dinosaurs, by manipulating their genetics.

    Wednesday Apr 19 | Science Blog

    Salk scientists and collaborators have shed light on a long-standing question about what leads to variation in stem cells by comparing induced pluripotent stem cells derived from identical twins. Even iPSCs made from the cells of twins, they found, have important differences, suggesting that not all variation between iPSC lines is rooted in genetics, since the twins have identical genes.
