gene mapping

Researchers found rare mutations in USP45 and ARID1A by applying a shared genomic segment mapping approach to several large multiple myeloma-affected families.

Researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute plan to spin out a company to use sequencing-based cellular network mapping to aid in drug development.

The startup, which was founded by Harvard's George Church, plans to commercialize a sequencing technology that is also able to map RNAs in 3D. 

The firm said the method could lead to more studies on the genetic determinants of disease for people of mixed or non-European ethnic backgrounds.

The analyses unearthed EIMFS-associated recessively inherited loss-of-function mutations in SLC12A5, a gene that encodes the KCC2 potassium chloride co-transporter.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Armed with a $500,000 National Institutes of Health grant, Texas A&M researchers are mapping the genes that control heat tolerance in cowpeas, the university said today.

Genetic Technologies granted a non-exclusive license to Orchid Cellmark for a number of patents covering non-coding analysis, gene mapping, and internal standards.

A new, $4 million per-year grant program will fund basic and translational studies of the genetic and molecular basis of congenital birth defects.

A new program will fund training in genomics and informatics for genotype-phenotype studies of eye diseases.

The two patents deal with DNA vectors that can be used in gene mapping and site-directed gene insertion, and are related to a different pair of patents already under reexamination at the USPTO.
