• scientists
  • In 1990, at an American Society of Human Genetics Meeting, a team of scientists led by Mary-Claire King, Ph.D., from the University of California, Berkeley announced the localization through linkage analysis of a gene associated with increased risk for breast cancer (BRCA1) to the long arm of chromosome 17.

  • Phase
  • Atossa Genetics is sponsoring a Phase 2 clinical trial, on the use of fulvestrant administered through a microcatheter into the lactiferous duct as neoadjuvant treatment for ductal carcinoma in situ and invasive breast cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Since the discovery of microorganisms by Robert Hooke and Antoni van Leeuwenhoek during the period 1665-1885 they have been used to study many processes and have had applications in various areas of study in genetics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Microbial genetics also has applications in being able to study processes and pathways that are similar to those found in humans such as drug metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since a large variety of coat patterns exist within the various cat breeds, the cat is an excellent animal to study the coat genetics of hair growth and coloration. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chemical genetics can serve as a unifying study between chemistry and biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Somatic mosaics have been created in Drosophila using X‑ray treatment and the use of irradiation to induce somatic mutation has been a useful technique in the study of genetics. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • The founders of Myriad are Peter Meldrum (past President and CEO of Agridyne and past CEO and President of Myriad Genetics, Inc.), Kevin Kimberlin (Chairman of Spencer Trask & Co.), Dr. Walter Gilbert (Founder of Biogen) and Mark Skolnick (Adjunct Professor in the Department of Medical Informatics at the University of Utah).

  • short
  • In genetics, an enhancer is a short (50-1500 bp) region of DNA that can be bound by proteins (activators) to increase the likelihood that transcription of a particular gene will occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • region
  • In genetics, an isochore is a large region of DNA (greater than 300 kb) with a high degree uniformity in guanine (G) and cytosine (C): G- C and C-G (collectively GC content). (wikipedia.org)
