The sun shines on Mendel’s Garden this weekend; at least in London where after days of clouds and rain, we’re seeing blue skies. Perfect day to take a stroll in Mendel’s Garden!
Christian Bachmann at Med Journal Watch talks about asexual reproduction in the marbled crayfish. FYI, they don’t need male interference (*cough*) and thus pass on perfectly identical genes from generation to generation.
Chris Patil, a biogerontologist at Ouroboros, delves into human embryonic stem cell research and therapeutic potentials.
GrrlScientist at Living the Scientific Life is keeping busy reading the “Book of Life” and Unraveling DNA: Genetic Collaboration in Genomes?
Bora Zivkovic, who’s in San Francisco starting his new job as the Online Community Coordinator with PLoS One, still finds time to think about chronobiology and the expression of genes with a circadian rhythm.
Keith Robison at Omics! Omics shares his garden and talks about the evolution of his favorite garden plant: columbines, species of the genus Aquilegia.
RPM at evolgen also looks at evolution but focuses on the human genome in On the Causes of Variation in the Rate of Molecular Evolution with emphasis on human accelerated regions (HARs).
Phil at Phil for Humanity wonders how governments are going to deal with artificially intelligent and sentient beings created using genetic engineering or other methods.
Alex Palazzo at the Daily Transcript looks at some of the latest research on microRNA’s and their role in regulating the translation of messenger RNA.
Dr. Deb at Psychological Perspectives says The “Eyes” Have It and it could be partly due to the Pax6 gene.
Mary Emma Allen at Alzheimer’s Notes tells us there are now cloned pigs with Alzheimer’s genes.
Omnome looks gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease using the adeno-associated virus and includes a BBC video report.
Bertalan Mesko at ScienceRoll uses some stunning examples in talking about moving Towards a World without Genetic Diseases.
Rebecca at Mary Meets Dolly is back from a long hiatus and jumps right back in with a discussion of human chimeric embryos created by adding animal DNA to a human embryo. Paul at The force that through… has more on these cybrids.
Blaine Bettinger at The Genetic Genealogist has A Lonely Surname but at least he has interesting Y-DNA to go along with it!
Albin Paul at the Microarray Blog tells us a genetic database for India has been completed. For one of the most populous nations in the world, this is important news!
TR Gregory at Genomicron clarifies Function, non-function, some function: a brief history of junk DNA for anti-evolutionists (and the rest of us).
Ricardo Vidal at My Biotech Life has a great list of life science videos and screencasts. Fun for a rainy day!
Jason Bobe at The Personal Genome gets into the nitty gritty of personal genome sequencing and health insurance discrimination.
Here at Eye on DNA, one of my most popular posts in recent weeks – Amerindian DNA Sells for 55 Dollars.
Enjoy the wealth of genetics reading and hope the sun is shining on you this weekend!
