An international team of researchers has sequenced the wild emmer wheat genome and compared it to the genome sequences of domesticated varieties.

Cephalopods with complex hunting, behavioral, and social behavior seem to adjust post-transcriptional processes to adapt to changing environments.

Using genome sequences from 38 Legionella species, researchers from Israel and the US identified diverse sets of effectors contributing to virulence.

NRGene's software will be used to assemble the 12GB wild emmer wheat genome

Rosetta Genomics said this week that it has entered a sponsored research arrangement with Tel Aviv University tech-transfer subsidiary Ramot to develop a delivery technology for microRNA mimic-based cancer therapies.

Researchers from the University of Colorado and Tel Aviv University have reported a case study that suggests fluorescence in situ hybridization-based testing may miss some ALK rearrangements in lung cancer patients who could benefit from Pfizer's Xalkori (crizotinib).
