Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory have unveiled a new way to identify key segments of the genetic code. The high-throughput technique is called single point genome signature tagging and may be helpful in identifying harmful pathogens, as well as identifying microbes that are useful in cleaning up contamination. The method is described in the March 2006 issue of Applied Environmental Microbiology. For more, go to: http://www.bnl.gov/blnweb/pubaf/pr/PR_
