Hopkins joins gene cloning project to advance medicine development – Baltimore Sun

Scientists at Johns Hopkins, Rutgers and Harvard universities, as well as the University of Trento in Italy, have created a new technique that allows thousands of genes in a DNA sequence to be cloned at once. Researchers hope the advance in gene cloning will allow them to more quickly identify markers for diseases and discover new medicines. Until now genes had to be cloned individually in a time-consuming process Continue reading
