New protein for gene editing may improve disease treatment, crops, sustainable manufacturing

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Gene editing has been a much sought after and controversial technology. Last month, part of the World Health Organization called for an international registry to track all research into editing the human genome.Purdue University researchers have developed a new technology that could change how gene editing is approached. NgAgo is programmed with guide DNA (red) to cut DNA (purple) at specific regions, enabling precise genetic modifications. (Image provided)Purdue University researchers, including one who was inspired by the cancer death of a close friend, have developed a new technology that could change how gene editing is approached in the future. The research team presents the work on April 4 at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Orlando.One of the most widely used methods for gene editing is CRISPR-Cas9 technology. The method requires a certain sequence or motif for function that restricts modifications.“CRISPR can be programmed to cut DNA at specific regions to make precise edits in an organism that can increase sustainable manufacturing, treat disease and even create better crops,” said Kevin Solomon, an assistant professor of agricultural and biological engineering, who leads the Purdue research team. “However, it requires a certain sequence for function that restricts modifications to certain regions.”Many diseases in humans, including several types of cancer, are caused by mutations at specific sites in the genome. The Purdue team created a method that uses the protein Argonaute from Natronobacterium gregoryi (NgAgo) and supplied DNA as a guide to enable modification anywhere on the genome, providing new options to potentially improve manufacturing, disease treatment, drug discovery and crop production.“While there is still work to do, we have shown that these molecular scissors can edit regions of DNA previously inaccessible by current technologies,” said 2nd Lt. Michael Mechikoff, a master’s student working on the project.“One of my best friends died from a cancer caused by a genetic variant several years ago,” said Kok Zhi Lee, a doctoral student who works on the research team in Solomon’s lab. “I always dreamed of a different scenario for my friend — living in an era where genetic engineering is a regular and safe option to correct genetic disorders. With the potential of our technology, I anticipate a future where genetic disease is history for human beings.”The team has worked with the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization to file a utility patent on the technology. They are looking for partners and others interested in developing and licensing it.last_img read more

Google Brings the Power of the Pie Chart

first_imgIf you’ve ever sat around mulling over different parts of an interactive map after an election or studied the New York Time’s “How Different Groups Spend Their Day” graph, then you know the value of a good chart. They can suck users in and really engage them. They can take a complex concept and make it simple.Google’s latest release, the Google Chart Tools, will make it easier for sites to show their users data in a meaningful, visual and interactive manner.These tools are broken down into two parts: image charts and interactive charts. The image charts work off a simple URL structure, defining all of the necessary characteristics through URL parameters. The interactive charts, while still relatively simple compared to custom creation, use a slightly more complicated Javascript library. Interactive charts will allow for showing extra data on mouseovers and simple animation. There are 30 different chart styles available, from interactive maps to pie charts, line charts to Venn diagrams.According to the Google Code Blog, “Interactive charts trigger events, providing tool-tips and animations. In addition to a rich gallery of charts, this tool can also read live data from a variety of data sources such as Oracle PL/SQL or Google spreadsheets.”We’re hoping these take off and we see more interesting visual data sets to play with around the web in the very near future.

9 days agoSpain coach Moreno dedicates Euros qualification to Luis Enrique

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Spain coach Moreno dedicates Euros qualification to Luis Enriqueby Carlos Volcano9 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveSpain coach Robert Moreno has dedicated Euros qualification to Luis Enrique.La Roja have made the 2020 Euros after their 1-1 draw with Sweden.And Moreno says qualification is tribute to former Barcelona coach Enrique, who stepped down earlier this year to be with his daughter before her passing.Moreno said, “We have played a good game, and even if we had lost, I would have been happy. Because we have played more with our style. We are qualified and now we have to try to be the top of the group.”Spain is a high-level national team and qualification is a must, but achieving it has its value I want to take the opportunity to dedicate this to Rubiales and Molina because they trusted me, and also Luis Enrique. “It releases tension and doubt, and gives us time to work more comfortably, but without losing tension because the goal is to be one of the six best to go to the draw as seeded teams. It will not be easy, but we will try.” last_img read more

Conservatives halt allnight voting marathon vow to resume fight next week

first_imgOTTAWA – The Conservatives vowed Friday to employ new tactics next week to force testimony from Justin Trudeau’s national security adviser over the prime minister’s recent trip to India.The Tories made the pledge after ending a marathon overnight voting session that began Thursday and kept members of Parliament answering roll calls in the House of Commons for nearly 21 hours.Conservative House leader Candice Bergen called a halt to the procedural stunt after MPs had voted on hundreds of motions deemed confidence measures. After she did, the calendar on the clerk’s desk finally flipped over to Friday and the sitting wrapped up.Bergen thanked parliamentary staff, from the Speaker to security guards to cafeteria workers, for hanging on through the prolonged sitting.Soon afterwards, the bleary MPs — some clad in sweats and clutching pillows and blankets — emerged from the chamber pumping their fists in the air in a victory gesture.At issue was the Liberal government’s refusal to support a Conservative demand that national security adviser Daniel Jean be called to testify before a Commons committee about a briefing he gave journalists during the prime minister’s ill-starred visit to India.Jean suggested to reporters covering Trudeau’s trip last month that rogue factions in the Indian government had sabotaged the visit. Since then, Opposition MPs demanded that Jean explain his reasoning about how one-time Canadian Sikh separatist and convicted attempted murderer Jaspal Atwal was invited to a Trudeau event in India.Atwal’s appearance, and Jean’s statements about the Indian government, have harmed Canada-India relations, said Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O’Toole.“We’ve already seen the Indian government express outrage, raise tariffs,” said O’Toole.“We’ve angered a major Commonwealth partner … and the prime minister clings to this conspiracy theory that directly contradicts his own MP, Randeep Sarai.”While Trudeau has defended Jean as a professional, non-partisan, veteran public servant who only says what he knows to be true, Sarai took responsibility for getting Atwal on the guest lists for Trudeau events in India after Atwal said he requested an invitation.Only one of those two scenarios can be true, said O’Toole: either Atwal was invited by a Liberal MP or he was an Indian government plant and Jean should be allowed to testify so he can clear the air over the controversy.But Liberal House Leader Bardish Chagger said it was entirely up to MPs on the national security committee — the majority of whom are Liberals — to decide whether Jean should be called to testify.“The committee should be able to choose if they would like him to come and testify or not,” said Chagger. “And that’s a choice for committee members to make.”NDP members, however, noted that the committee had not voted on a motion to compel Jean to testify. Instead, committee members adjourned debate before a vote could be called.Either way, it’s up to Trudeau to “come clean with Canadians about his trip to India,” Bergen said in a statement.“Canadians deserve to know the truth about what happened during the Atwal Affair,” she said. “Justin Trudeau is trying to hide the one person who can set the record straight. That’s not right.”O’Toole insisted the fight will carry on next week, although he wouldn’t say what new tactics his party might use.“We’re going to bring this back in a new way,” said O’Toole.last_img read more

Hoda Kotb Tia Mowry Team Up To Eat Dessert First For Childrens

first_imgFans can come up with several reasons for why it’s good to eat dessert first. But the Dairy Queen system has come up with the best reason yet.On Thursday, July 27, for that day only, the Dairy Queen system is encouraging fans to Eat Dessert First during the 12th Annual Miracle Treat Day, when $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating DQ Grill & Chill and Dairy Queen locations throughout the U.S. will be donated to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH).Annually at CMNH one in 10 children is treated and 32 million treatments are provided. Funds raised during Miracle Treat Day fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care to help save and improve the lives of those children. While CMNH raises funds and awareness for more than 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, all funds raised during Miracle Treat Day stay in local communities.“When you visit a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, you are inspired by how brave the children and their families are,” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “Then you see how passionate the doctors and nurses are and you realize what a significant impact the dollars we raise can have on so many lives. We have two great moms this year, Hoda Kotb and Tia Mowry, who are joining us in supporting Miracle Treat Day.”New mom and co-anchor of the fourth hour of Today, Hoda Kotb is the honorary chair of Miracle Treat Day. Kotb has ties to CMNH. She lifted the spirits of children with cancer and raised money for pediatric cancer as part of Today’s Shine a Light series a few years ago that included the shooting of a music video with pediatric patients at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, part of the CMNH network.Also this year, Tia Mowry, actress, cookbook author and mom, will deliver Blizzard Treats and visit with patients and their families at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in advance of the DQ Miracle Treat Day.“July is a special month for the Dairy Queen system. It’s National Ice Cream Month and we are celebrating by giving back to our local communities in a big way with Miracle Treat Day,” said Westrum. “We thank Hoda and Tia for their support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and can’t wait to raise money on Miracle Treat Day.”Last year, DQ operators across the U.S. and Canada raised more than $4 million on Miracle Treat Day for their local CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $125 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.The featured Miracle Treat Day Blizzard Treat of the Day is Oreo, the most popular Blizzard Treat to date. All other Blizzard flavors are also available that day.For more information about Miracle Treat Day, visit MiracleTreatDay.com and connect on Twitter using #MiracleTreatDay.For more information about the Dairy Queen system, visit DairyQueen.com.last_img read more
