    Nearly a decade ago, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna embarked on a journey that would transform the field of science. Their groundbreaking research on the CRISPR system revolutionized gene editing and ultimately earned them the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Watch their captivating short film, offering insights into the process of scientific discovery, collaboration, and groundbreaking experimentation.
    Software: Python packages for bioinformatics
    Submitted by Gajendra P.S. Raghava; posted on Tuesday, September 05, 2023


    Raghava's group has announced Python packages in the field of bioinformatics. These packages can be installed by the simple command, "pip install package-name". They are free for the scientific community. I hope the public will be benefited by them.



    Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is reckoned as one of the most propitious vectors for gene research and therapy. This perception is due to an amalgamation of characteristics such as its variant types, minimal immunogenicity, extensive safety considerations, the extensive range of host cells it can infect (including both dividing and non-dividing cells), its potent dissemination capabilities, and its ability to facilitate prolonged gene expression.

    In the context of the Patsnap Bio Sequence Database, it's possible to extract sequences analogous to definite AAV sequences and examine new AAV data from sources accessible to the public, thereby providing a catalyst for advanced AAV research.

    Hey Everyone,

    Wanted to show off a project I've been working on and ask for some feedback!

    I'm Jake, I'm a co-founder at Burla ( Previously, I worked as a software engineer at a biotech startup (DayZeroDiagnostics) using WGS and machine learning to predict antibiotic resistance.

    When I started at DZD, our machine learning learning system was trained on the genomes of over 50k bacterial samples and took easily over a week to train. Getting it to train faster meant scaling across many machines in the cloud which wasn't a simple task, this is why I made Burla. Burla is a simple python package that lets you run a python function on every input in some list, at the same time, each on a separate computer in the cloud. Here's a link to a simple example:

    I was hoping you guys could help try it out and give feedback, we're happy to cover any compute cost so don't worry about using a lot of computers (the max is 1000 right now)!

    Some examples we've seen people build are:
    • Aligning of 1000 genomes to the same reference all at the same time on 1000 separate computers
    • Running an assembly algorithm on 1000 genomic samples all at the same time
    Shoot me a message if anything doesn't work, I'm always happy to hop on a call and help figure anything out, definitely let me know if you find a cool application!

    My email is jake[at], don't hesitate to reach out!



    An international research team has generated the first truly complete sequence of a human Y chromosome, the final human chromosome to be fully sequenced. The new sequence, which fills in gaps across more than 50% of the Y chromosome's length, uncovers important genomic features with implications for fertility, such as factors in sperm production.

    Question: Is there a dose-response association between screen time for children aged 1 year and functional development at ages 2 and 4 years?

    Findings: In this cohort study including 7097 mother-child pairs, a dose-response association was observed between greater screen time at age 1 year and developmental delays in communication and problem-solving at ages 2 and 4 years.

    Meaning: These findings suggest that domains of developmental delay should be considered separately in future discussions on screen time and child development.
