Many thanks to Ricardo Vidal for the logo!

Gene Genie is the blog carnival of genes and gene-related diseases. Our plan is to cover the whole genome before 2082 (it means 14-15 genes every two weeks). But we also accept articles on the news of genomics and personalized genetics. Let’s get ready to the geneticalization:

DNA:


Hsien-Hsien Lei at Eye on DNA tells us that New Line Genetics and SellMyDNA.com Offer $5,000 for Your DNA. Would you sell it?

Nature’s Nascent has a short report about the amazing story of Hugh Rienhoff, his daughter and her DNA.

Misha Angrist at Genomeboy comments the same story in the Don’t try this at home, kids post.

Genes:

Steve Murphy, our Gene Sherpa, expresses his opinion on a new gene in sudden cardiac death.

Ramūnas Janavičius at Cancer-Genetics examines the single nucleotides polymorphisms of the gene SMAD7 which is important in scleroderma as well.

Larry Moran, our favourite professor and author of Sandwalk, has a post about diversity and the major histocompatibility (MHC) loci.

Elaine Warburton at Genetics and Health targets the FOXP2 gene which is believed to play a role in speech and language and wishes Happy Birthday to BRCA2!

PZ Myers at Pharyngula says mutations in the CFTR gene cause Cystic Fibrosis.

Alan Cann at MicrobiologyBytes reports that a variation in two key genes can predict the course of progression to AIDS.

Razib Kahn at Gene Expression has a reference-full article about the Neandertals’ red hair.

Genome Sequencing and Genetic Research:

Strange facts about DNA, genes, genetics and the human genome.

Philippe Campeau at OMMBID Blog shares some articles about neurotransmitter diseases with us.

Ramunas again with Knome | The First Whole-Genome Sequencing Co.

David Hamilton at VentureBeat presents gene-expression diagnostics.

T. Ryan Gregory at Genomicron asks a strange question: Are you a cat genome person or a dog genome person?

The Biotech Weblog had an interesting post about a FISH-based test identifing genetic abnormalities in plasma cell malignancies.

Nautilus talks about an important issue, Opportunities for women in early genetics.

The study of the week award goes to the PredictER blog: Genetic Research: Watson or Spears?

Personalized Genetics:

Deepak Singh at business|bytes|genes|molecules presents a cautionary note about Your personal health.

Rahul Shetty at Constructive Medicine examines the exact definition of Personal Health Records.

has a fantastic imaginary story.

Elaine Warburton at Genetics and Health raised some concerns: Personalized Medicine leaves public confused.

And on Scienceroll, I continued my series about the best posts of personalized genetics in this weekend’s summary part one and part two.

Let’s finish this edition with an other idiot video, the guy’s name is Gene Gene, the dancing machine (I’m sorry for the bad humour…):

The 20th, jubilee issue of Gene Genie will be hosted by BiteSize Bio on November 18th. Don’t forget to submit your articles via the official page.

And also check out the Gene Genie official blog! If you’d like to host an edition, don’t hesitate to contact me at berci.mesko [at] gmail.com.

  2. You’re welcome, Steve!

    I plan to make a trip in the first months of next year.

    Anyway, if you can send me an invitation letter from your university, I can get a visa for about 10 years. :)
