    On October 2-3, 2014, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) will sponsor the seventh Genomic Medicine Centers meeting - Genomic Medicine Centers VII: Genomic Clinical Decision Support - Developing solutions for Clinical and Research Implementation.
  • DNA Sequencing Core sites selected for Undiagnosed Diseases Network September 26, 2014
    The National Institutes of Health announced today that Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, and the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, will be providing DNA sequencing for the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN). These two universities will become the DNA Sequencing Core sites for the UDN.

  • Microgel Particles Boost Blood Clotting September 29, 2014
    Researchers developed microgel particles that mimic platelets and help form blood clots. The approach could lead to new treatments for uncontrolled bleeding.
  • Method Can Target Specific Microbes September 29, 2014
    Scientists designed a way to target and destroy specific DNA sequences in microbes. The approach might one day be used against pathogenic bacteria resistant to multiple antibiotics.
  • How Genes Affect Facial Development September 29, 2014
    A zebrafish study shed light on how the structure of the face forms. Problems with equivalent genes in people can cause facial defects and other developmental issues.

  • Laying the groundwork for data-driven science October 1, 2014
    The ability to collect and analyze massive amounts of data is rapidly transforming science, industry and everyday life, but what we have seen so far is likely just the tip of the iceberg. Many of the benefits of "Big Data" have yet to surface because of a lack of interoperability, missing tools and hardware that is still evolving to meet the divers […]
  • National Science Foundation is dedicated to support for The BRAIN Initiative September 30, 2014
    Today the White House announced its continued support for The BRAIN Initiative and revealed new commitments from non-federal agencies as part of the call to action to advance brain research. Government leaders also highlighted the progress that has been made since the initiative was
  • $18-million NSF investment aims to take flat materials to new heights September 30, 2014
    Graphene, a form of carbon in which a single layer of atoms forms a two-dimensional, honeycomb crystal lattice, conducts electricity and heat efficiently and interacts with light in unusual ways. These properties have led to worldwide efforts in exploring its use in electronics, photonics and many other applications. Rapid advances in graphene research durin […]
