In Saliva, Clues to a ‘Ghost’ Species of Ancient Human

ancient-human.jpg

In saliva, scientists have found hints that a “ghost” species of archaic humans may have contributed genetic material to ancestors of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa today. The research adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting that sexual rendezvous between different archaic human species may not have been unusual.

Northwestern University neuroscientists now can visualize how fruit flies sense and process humidity. The findings could one day help researchers better understand how the human brain simultaneously processes humidity and temperature and might influence how humans control for mosquitoes in cities and prevent mosquito-borne disease

Scientists Identify New Epigenetic Mechanism That Switches Off Placental Genes in Mice

Harvard Medical School researchers have discovered a new regulatory mechanism for genomic imprinting, the process that silences one parent’s gene so that only the other parent’s gene is expressed in offspring.

Scientists Identify New Way Cells Turn Off Genes

For some developmental genes one allele must stay silent, otherwise debilitating syndromes and cancers can arise. HHMI Investigator Yi Zhang and his colleagues have uncovered a new imprinting mechanism cells use to keep these genes quiet in mice.

Accel Biotech Rebrands to XimedicaDx

XimedicaDx, formerly known as Accel Biotech, is proud to unveil their comprehensive rebranding, which is officially being revealed at the 69th AACC Clinical Lab Expo in San Diego. The change comes in alignment with their acquisition by Ximedica, a leading full service medical technologies development firm, in July of 2016. XimedicaDx maintains Accel Biotech’s comprehensive experience and expertise in in-vitro diagnostics and life science product development as Ximedica’s Diagnostics Center of Excellence.
