New method identifies genome-wide off-target cleavage sites of CRISPR-Cas nucleases

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 16-Dec-2014 Contact: Sue McGreevey smcgreevey@partners.org 617-724-2764 Massachusetts General Hospital @MassGeneralNews Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators have developed a method of detecting, across the entire genome of human cells, unwanted DNA breaks induced by use of the popular gene-editing tools called CRISPR-Cas RNA-guided nucleases (RGNs). Members of the same team that first described these off-target effects in human cells describe their new platform, called Genome-wide Unbiased Indentification of DSBs Evaluated by Sequencing (GUIDE-seq), in a report being published online in Nature Biotechnology. “GUIDE-seq is the first genome-wide method of sensitively detecting off-target DNA breaks induced by CRISPR-Cas nucleases that does not start with the assumption that these off-target sites resemble the targeted sites,” says J

Massive Genetic Effort Confirms Bird Songs Related to Human Speech

The sequencing of genomes of 48 bird species explains the evolutionary roots of vocalization and could offer insight into human speech disorders Zebra finch offers clues to the evolution of vocalization. Credit: Peripitus/Wikimedia Commons Songbirds stutter, babble when young, become mute if parts of their brains are damaged, learn how to sing from their elders and can even be “bilingual”in other words, songbirds’ vocalizations share a lot of traits with human speech. However, that similarity goes beyond behavior, researchers have found.

Current practices in reporting on behavioural genetics can mislead the public

Media reports about behavioural genetics unintentionally induce unfounded beliefs, therefore going against the educational purpose of scientific reporting, writes the University of Montreals Alexandre Morin-Chass, following his study of 1,500 Americans. Among other things, we wanted to know if the public understood (or misunderstood) popular science articles about a new research field, genopolitics, and whether this popularization indeed helped people have an informed opinion on human genetics, Morin-Chass explained. The study participants first had to read a news article about research on the influence of a gene on one of the following three traits: breast cancer, political ideology (liberal or conservative), or the tendency to go into debt.

Human DNA Shows Traces of 40 Million-Year Battle For Survival Between Primate and Pathogen

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise (SALT LAKE CITY) Examination of DNA from 21 primate species from squirrel monkeys to humans exposes an evolutionary war against infectious bacteria over iron that circulates in the hosts bloodstream. Supported by experimental evidence, these findings, published in Science on Dec. 12, demonstrate the vital importance of an increasingly appreciated defensive strategy called nutritional immunity.

Genetics show Viking women colonized new lands, too

Image: Wikimedia Commons Oscar Wergeland Vikings may have been family men who traveled with their wives to new lands, according to a new study of ancient Viking DNA. Maternal DNA from ancient Norsemen closely matches that of modern-day people in the North Atlantic isles, particularly from the Orkney and Shetland Islands. The findings suggest that both Viking men and women sailed on the ships to colonize new lands
