Researchers from the CDC and Georgia Tech tested the efficacy of using whole-genome shotgun sequencing to diagnose food-borne pathogens in outbreaks.

A Georgia Tech team used random mutagenesis on a red fluorescent protein gene to develop a phylogeny to test algorithms that reconstruct ancestral sequences.

Georgia Tech researchers used high-performance mass spectrometry to uncover a highly accurate 16-marker signature that identifies women with ovarian cancer.

The method combines post-translational modification data and 3D protein structure data to identify known and novel biologically significant hotspots.

The methods could help researchers understand how ribonucleotides change the structure and function of DNA and chromatin.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Recessive inherited disease risk may be incrementally notched up over time in human populations by a process called biased gene conversion, according to a study appearing online yesterday

A group of researchers from Stanford University, Emory University, and the Georgia Institute of Technology, have published a study evaluating how whole-genome sequencing could be used alongside traditional clinical evaluation in preventive medicine.

NSF Microarray Grants Awarded Jan 1 — June 25, 2013

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Scientists at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have received a four-year, $4 million grant to establish a center for research into the effects of environmental exposure on humans.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By getting airmass samples from a DC-8 flown high above land and the ocean, researchers led by Konstantinos Konstantinidis, an assistant professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences today tha
