CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. However, its high frequency of off-target activity is a major concern, especially for therapeutic and clinical applications. This feed focuses on methods that can detect CRISPR off-target activity.
Alignment-free sequence analyses have been applied to problems ranging from whole-genome phylogeny to the classification of protein families, identification of horizontally transferred genes, and detection of recombined sequences. Here is the latest research.
Alternative splicing a regulated gene expression process that allows a single genetic sequence to code for multiple proteins. Here is that latest research.
RNA sequencing studies have shed light on the genetic and molecular mechanisms related to the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). This feed follows papers using RNA sequencing technologies in Alzheimer's research.
Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.
The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
Artificial chromosomes are genetically engineered chromosomes derived from the DNA of a species. Discover the latest research on artificial chromosomes here.
Phage therapy uses bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) to treat bacterial infections and is widely being recognized as an alternative to antibiotics. Here is the latest research.
