Genome Research at UC Riverside Gets $4.8M NSF Funding

Posted by Margie Nieuwkerk on Thu, May 12, 2011

A grant from the National Science Foundation has provided $4.8 million research funding for UC Riverside enabling researchers Susan R. Wessler, and Jason Stajich to investigate  various rice cultivars using genome sequencing and seeing how these cultivars react to drought, disease, and flooding.  

The rice plants are mutagenized with Transposable Elements (TE), which identify interesting characteristics within a particular strain and help locate specific elements causing a characteristic within that gene.  

With the current severe weather and climate stresses on agriculture as a whole, this research is very timely, rice being one of the main global food staples .  Additionally the  funding will  allow researchers to generate resources in the scientific community, enabling them to follow TE movement and find out how traits are determined by the insertion of a TE in a gene.

Genomic Science Research Advances at National Jewish Health

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Apr 28, 2011

National Jewish Health in Denver is the #1 respiratory hospital in the United States and the only institution in the world dedicated exclusively to respiratory, cardiac, and immune diseases.  Researchers at NJH's Center for Genes, Environment & Health (CGEH) have recently published the results of an important study that identifies a genetic variant for ideopathic pulmonary fibrosis and its cousin familial interstitial pneumonia.  Both are fatal diseases involving progressive lung scarring; some 40,000 people die annually of the little-understood and untreatable conditions.
