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

Gene Cloning Just Became A Thousand Times Easier – Wall Street Pit

Presently, the process of DNA sequencing to discover a genes function is a bit time-consuming because it has to be done one gene at a time. But with the invention of a team of researchers from Rutgers University-New Brunswick, Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School, that process can now be considerably shortened as they have found a way to simultaneously clone thousands of genes. The new technique is called LASSO cloning LASSO is an acronym for long-adapter single-strand oligonucleotide and through it, isolating thousands of DNA sequences can now be done at the same time Continue reading
