University of Utah software successfully identifies diseases with unknown gene mutations in three separate cases

A computational tool developed at the University of Utah (U of U) has successfully identified diseases with unknown gene mutations in three separate cases, U of U researchers and their colleagues report in a new study in The American Journal of Human Genetics. The software, Phevor (Phenotype Driven Variant Ontological Re-ranking tool), identifies undiagnosed illnesses and unknown gene mutations by analyzing the exomes, or areas of DNA where proteins that code for genes are made, in individual patients and small families.

Discovery of oldest human DNA in Spanish cave tangles human family tree

Scientists say DNA strands in thigh bone of 400,000-year-old early human can help build clearer picture of how we evolved Researchers have read strands of ancient DNA teased from the thigh bone of an early human that died 400,000 years ago in what is now northern Spain. The genetic material was pieced together from a clutch of cells found in bone fragments the oldest human remains ever to ..

Neanderthals Lived in Small, Isolated Populations, Gene Analysis Shows

Modern humanity’s ancient cousins, the Neanderthals, lived in small groups that were isolated from one another, suggests an investigation into their DNA. The analysis also finds that Neanderthals lacked some human genes that are linked to our behavior.

Humans May Have Dispersed Out of Africa Earlier Than Thought

Modern humans may have dispersed in more than one wave of migration out of Africa, and they may have done so earlier than scientists had long thought, researchers now say. Modern humans first arose between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago in Africa. But when and how the modern human lineage then dispersed out of Africa has long been controversial

Neanderthal genetic landscape reveals key differences with humans

When scientists first sequenced the genome of a Neanderthal, our extinct, heavy-browed human cousin, we learned a surprising amount about our own species too: many modern humans carry Neanderthal genes, proving we interbred with them long ago.

DNA looping damage tied to HPV cancer, researcher discovers

It’s long been known that certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) cause cancer. Now, researchers at The Ohio State University have determined a new way that HPV might spark cancer development — by disrupting the human DNA sequence with repeating loops when the virus is inserted into host-cell DNA as it replicates. Worldwide, HPV causes about 610,000 cases of cancer annually, accounting for about five percent of all cancer cases and virtually all cases of cervical cancer

Refining language for chromosomes

When talking about genetic abnormalities at the DNA level that occur when chromosomes swap, delete or add parts, there is an evolving communication gap both in the science and medical worlds, leading to inconsistencies in clinical and research reports. Now a study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) proposes a new classification system that may standardize how structural chromosomal rearrangements are described. Known as Next-Gen Cytogenetic Nomenclature, it is a major contribution to the classification system to potentially revolutionize how cytogeneticists worldwide translate and communicate chromosomal abnormalities
