    Exon skipping and PIRM syndrome.

    PIRM syndrome casts a number of morbidities on finnish Ayrshire cattle including retardation and mortality. Following an exhaustive GWAS the syndrome has been traced to a G>A mutation caused by In frame exon skipping.

    Loci involved in Klebsiella susceptibility

    The genetic underpinnings of susceptibility to Klebsiella pneumonaie are poorly understood. Following a large scale QTL investigation utilising over 70 collaborative cross mice lines 3 loci have been identified important for susceptibility.

    Cure for a broken heart

    Zebrafish display a unique ability to regenerate heart tissue. In the present study, transcripts expressed in response to cardiac damage were identified using a range of techniques which may be useful in the future treatment of cardiac diseases.

    Breakthrough in Hemicellulose Breakdown.

    Comparative analysis of genes from the recently discovered hemicellulose hydrolytic locus from Geobacillus have revealed a number of variances. This discovery provides a blueprint for the development of Geobacillus species able to degrade a wide variety of cellulose containing bio waste.

    Crab Acclimation to increasing ocean acidification levels

    Giant spider crabs experience an increase in expression of stress related genes at intermediate ocean acidification levels whilst this effect is attenuated at higher levels. This may leave the species vulnerable to increasing ocean acidification.
