Scientists discover precise DNA sequence code critical for turning genes on ift.tt/2k2y8L7
seqanswers - THE community for everything around the new sequencing technologies
The Sequence Read Archive (SRA) stores raw sequence data from "next-generation" sequencing technologies including 454, IonTorrent, Illumina, SOLiD, Helicos and Complete Genomics. In addition to raw sequence data, SRA now stores alignment information in the form of read placements on a reference sequence.

GENETIC BOUNDARIES: 'A pioneering study into [Britain's] genetic heritage ... shows that up to 40 per cent of [British] DNA may be from Germanic ancestors, and not the Vikings, thanks to the Anglo-Saxon migrations in 450-600AD. The project, carried out by Oxford University, is particularly interesting because it would seem that this genetic make-up bears out those old traditions and clichés about how [people] relate to each other. So the age-old rivalries between Devon and Cornwall – take…

Alexander Davis DNA Pendant. When a DNA pendant is commissioned, Davis takes a blood sample from the wearer and their DNA sequence is analysed. The combination of gemstones corresponds to a unique part of their DNA.
Research led by Oxford University have identified 12 specific areas of the DNA sequence that are related with the age at which we have our first child and the total number of children we have during the course of our life suggesting that there is a biological basis for reproductive behaviour.

A Roller Derby of Bacteria
hahhaha!!! Derby Rocks! When curious researchers armed with cotton swabs and strong stomachs sequence DNA from microorganisms gathered from our armpits, belly buttons, and various other locales, both inside and outside us, they find miniature versions of ecosystems like those in rain forests and meadows, composed of trillions of microbes. In aggregate, this invisible mass of organisms is our “microbiome,” and it makes up as much as three pounds of our body weight.
