In a joint effort, researchers at U.C. San Francisco and ETH Zurich have developed a method that enables them to precisely control gene expression in individual cells of yeast. Their research, published in Nature Biotechnology, represents an interesting step forward in genetic engineering.

Here’s the basics of how it works: the researchers expose the yeast to a red light. This changes the shape of a protein called phytochrome, a common regulator that’s found in quite a few species. Exposure to light changes the shape of the phytochrome, which allows it to turn a gene on, so the gene will produce its particular protein. The phytochrome can then be exposed to a different shade of red light to turn the gene off.

In order to ensure that this gene expression is properly regulated, the researchers also introduced a different molecule into the yeast. When the proper gene is turned on and its protein is being produced, this molecule will luminesce. The computer then detects that light and verifies that yes, the phytochrome turned on the gene.

This combination of technique allows for precise control of gene expression in yeast, which is something that can be useful for genetic engineering. For example, if a yeast cell was genetically modified to include a particular gene, this technique would allow the expression of that gene to come under precise control. It’ll be interesting to see how this type of control will evolve over the next few years.

The experimental medicine that i was giving in 2008 has led me to genetic engineering an other feilds of science.My research on this word (Demethylation) they were modifying (my) DNA,Genes,Chromatin modifying,Activating Histone Marts,Modification of Histones,Gene silencing using (medication).this was done with out my knowledge.I wrote this down while researching my medicine on a FDA web site i could not print but i have that hard drive.

I was perscribed Morphine,Oxycodone,Alprazolam and Zoloft from 1996 until 2010 i was thrown out of my doctors office on 6-20-08 and this is why i paid for this drug screen report on 6-30-2008.No that my medical condition was very poor at this time.

....i saw on the news a few weeks ago where young teenage virgin girls was PREGNANT and they didn't know how they became pregnant.VERY UNUSUAL, THANKS And GOD BLESS...

...this drug screen that I paid for is evidence that they altered my medication without my knowledge and I came very close to death because of this...THANKS AND GOD BLESS...

all i can say is,

"that's what they think."  time and again

empirical science is embarassed by new discoveries that go beyond what they arrogantly THINK

that they completely understand.  nature is infinite...they are finite, small, and always

arrogantly counter intuitive.   decent scientists never, anymore, contribute their energy to such...

THOSE sorts of scientists are slaves, and spineless slaves at that.  the truly good scientists

are "doing other things," not giving their energy to the poisons of the military industrial complex.gotta get back to work...
