Investigators are broadening their DNA searches beyond government databases and demanding genetic information from companies that do ancestry research for their customers.
The JRC has published a new database, JRC GMO-Amplicons, which contains more than 240 000 DNA sequences appearing in genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It will help to verify the presence of GMOs in food, feed and environment. ...
Parasitic wasps are able to survive by keenly predicting the changing of the seasons based on the length of days throughout the year - and a new online database launched by the University of Leicester explores the genetic ...
Sequence homology searches are widely used in genome studies. New DNA sequencers produce large amounts of sequence data, which require continual increases in the size of sequence databases.
A London borough—aptly named Barking and Dagenham—unveiled plans on Tuesday to crack down on irresponsible dog owners by checking their pet's poo against a DNA database it will build up.
Interpol is going to use software based on research by Radboud University Nijmegen and marketed by spin-off company SMART Research BV. The program, called Bonaparte, is able to identify people from their relatives' DNA.
You can ditch your computer and leave your cellphone at home, but you can't escape your DNA. It belongs uniquely to you—and, increasingly, to the authorities.
Scientists develop Atlantic fish DNA database with possible conservation and seafood fraud implications
Dal's Paul Bentzen and colleagues have developed a publically available DNA database to identify all fish commonly encountered in the ocean off Atlantic Canada. This database could impact ocean conservation, species tracking ...
The first rigorous analysis of the crime-fighting power of DNA profiling finds substantial evidence of its effectiveness.
