Video now available Genome-Scale Sequence Analysis On Wednesday, March 19th, Tyra Wolfsberg, Ph.D., associate director, Bioinformatics and Scientific Programming Core, presented Genome-Scale Sequence Analysis, part of the Current Topics in Genome Analysis (CTGA) lecture series. Watch the videoRead about the lecture series Finding Our Inner Neanderthal: Evolutionary Geneticist Svante Pääbo's DNA Quest In 2010, Svante Pääbo, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, shook the scientific world with a five-year study that concluded that Neanderthals, who disappeared 30,000 years ago, left a legacy that survives in the DNA of many people today.

ENCODE Project at UCSC 12 Sept 2013 - New UDR ENCODE Download Method Available The UCSC Genome Browser is pleased to offer a new download protocol to use when downloading large sets of files from our download servers: UDR (UDT Enabled Rsync). UDR utilizes rsync as the transport mechanism, but sends the data over the UDT protocol, which enables huge amounts of data to be downloaded more efficiently over long distances.

ENCODE and modENCODE Projects The ENCODE Project: ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements Follow the ENCODE Project on: ENCODE Overview The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) launched a public research consortium named ENCODE, the Encyclopedia Of DNA Elements, in September 2003, to carry out a project to identify all functional elements in the human genome sequence. The project started with two components - a pilot phase and a technology development phase. Twins Every summer, on the first weekend in August, thousands of twins converge on Twinsburg, Ohio, a small town southeast of Cleveland named by identical twin brothers nearly two centuries ago. They come, two by two, for the Twins Days Festival, a three-day marathon of picnics, talent shows, and look-alike contests that has grown into one of the world's largest gatherings of twins. Dave and Don Wolf of Fenton, Michigan, have been coming to the festival for years.

DNA Can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies « Quantum Pranx by Grazyna Fosar and Franz BludorfRussian DNA Discoveries: Original version THE HUMAN DNA IS A BIOLOGICAL INTERNET and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. The latest Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes.

Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues This page is an archive, the contents of which provide a snapshot in time--describing potential societal concerns arising from increased knowledge of our personal DNA as described and studied during the HGP (1990-2003). The content of this page is as it was at the close of the project with the exception of minor repairs such as the removal of broken links. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) devoted 3% to 5% of their annual Human Genome Project (HGP) budgets toward studying the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) surrounding availability of genetic information. At the time, this represented the world's largest bioethics program, and it become a model for ELSI programs around the world.

The Elegant Universe: Series ... The Elegant Universe: Part 3 PBS Airdate: November 4, 2003 NARRATOR: Now, on NOVA, take a thrill ride into a world stranger than science fiction, where you play the game by breaking some rules, where a new view of the universe pushes you beyond the limits of your wildest imagination.
