The supercomputer at the service of biotechnology

In Novosibirsk at the Russian Academy of Sciences Centre opened "Bioinformatics". In fact, it is a huge computer system suprekompyuter, which can be used to simulate a cure for cancer and AIDS, decoding the genomes of plants and living organisms.

Supercomputing Center "Bioinformatics", recently discovered in the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, one of the fastest in the world — 16.5 trillion operations per second on the power they do not yield the same set at the Center for Vital-IT in Lausanne.

Head of the Siberian Supercomputer Center Boris Glinski said: "We have

Yaqui evolved along with their hosts, say scientists

Biologists have a preliminary version of the genome of domestic yak and found that these animals and their owners — people highlands of Tibet — got the same mutation in the same gene that allowed them to adapt to living at high altitude, according to an article published in the journal Nature Genetics.

It is believed that high-altitude animals developed a range of accessories for cellular and genetic level, allowing them to overcome the harsh climate and the lack of food and oxygen at high altitude. In particular, domestic Tibetan yak (Bos grunniens) have large lungs and heart, well oriented

There were more strawberry genes than human

An international team of scientists managed to decipher the genetic code of strawberries and cocoa fruit that make chocolate. Woodland strawberry genome contains 35,000 genes, a third more than in humans. Researchers are reminded that the genome of Homo Sapience has 25,000 genes.

However, suffer from their "genetically defective" people of this does not have to: the genome of plants, usually contains more genes. In the DNA of rice, for example, includes 57 000 genes. Grätzel has a practical application. It will greatly improve the taste of strawberries and chocolate. In genetic structure akin strawberries with fruit like apples, pears,

The heat and the cave in the Altai

The synthetic gene, "scandalous" bacteria in the arsenic, the heat in Russia and other anomalous phenomena on Earth, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico — all included in the list of the most significant events of the 2010 version of the prestigious scientific journal Nature

On Thursday came the New Year issue of Nature in which, according to tradition, summed up the results of 2010. This time, the editors selected twelve events — the number of months in a year.

Natural disasters on Earth

Nature magazine recalls that 2010 was marked by a large number of natural disasters

Scientists have for the first time made the most complete map of the human DNA

September 6, 2012 7:45

Most of the DNA function has so far been poorly studied

Scientists from several countries have published the most detailed analysis of the functions of the human genetic code to date. They were able to establish the functions of up to 80% of the human genome. Until now it was thought that most of the DNA helix has no function, and the attention of researchers has focused on the 2% of the genome that are responsible for the production of proteins. The project "Encyclopedia of DNA elements» (Encode) since 2003 more than 400 scientists

Dr. Francis Collins (Francis Collins), director of the U.S. National Human Genome Research Institute (National Human Genome Research Institute), and colleagues found that the number of genes that are sufficient to create a human — half as much as previously thought.

A new estimate — 20-25 thousand
