“Pigs camera check better than humans”

Data plays an important role in breeding to take gene expression to the next level. In addition to sharing and interpreting data from developments to estimate breeding values, technological aids such as cameras offer more possibilities for objective observation and the creation of new phenotypes. In China, for example, facial recognition technology to identify pigs … Read more

Abnormal red blood cells found in 4 Huntington’s patients: a study The results undermine attempts to distinguish between two genetic diseases

abnormal red blood cells, known as pleocytosiswere identified in four unrelated Chinese adults Huntington’s disease – Undermining researchers’ attempts to differentiate between a neurodegenerative disorder and another similar genetic disease. The researchers expected that the presence or absence of abnormally shaped red blood cells would help distinguish Huntington’s condition from a similar condition called Many … Read more

Viewpoint: Drought-tolerant GM crops: Here’s a biotech innovation that only scientific anti-GMO naysayers can demonize

At #ClimateWeek, we’re reblogging debunking some of biotech’s biggest, greenest claims. The tweet associated with a blog post titled How beneficial are GMOs on a warming planet? mid Her argument … Read more

Identification of genes that maintain neuronal health

Summary: Kinase enzymes are essential for neurons to perform autophagy. The researchers found that deletion of the genes encoding the kinases NDR1 and NDR2 impairs neuronal health and induces neurodegeneration in both young and old mice. source: Francis Crick Institute Scientists at the Francis Crick Institute have discovered that deletion of two genes encoding key … Read more
