NIH researchers tackle thorny side of gene therapy

Read more

Bethesda, Md., Tues., Jan. 20, 2015 - National Institutes of Health researchers have uncovered a key factor in understanding the elevated cancer risk associated with gene therapy. Researchers at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of NIH, published their research in the Jan. 20, 2015, online issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Read more


NHGRI/Smithsonian collaboration to sequence North America's oldest dog relics

Read more

When Smithsonian archeologist Dr. Daniel Stanford attended a talk on canine (dog) genomics by NHGRI's Dr. Elaine Ostrander, he realized the potential of the NMNH collection of ancient dog bones to canine genome research. With new sequencing tools and techniques now available - and the complete sequence of the dog genome - both hope to unlock the secrets of this ancient dog DNA, perhaps the oldest in North America.

NIH researchers publish comprehensive taxonomy and genetic analysis of skin microbial diversity

Read moreA team led by Julie Segre, Ph.D., chief of NHGRI's Translational and Functional Genomics Branch and Heidi Kong, M.D., investigator in the dermatology branch of the National Cancer Institute's Center for Cancer Research, produced an article published in the Oct. 2, 2014 issue of Nature reporting on their study of the genetic content of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms on the skin of healthy individuals. The authors performed DNA sequencing of the collection of genomes, or metagenome, of 18 sampling sites across the skin, revealing that each individual has a unique skin microbiota.Read more
