Mice losing their allure as experimental subjects to study human disease
The Guardian
On Nov. 19, 2014, the journal Nature published the conclusions of a study carried out by the Encode international consortium, comparing the systems controlling gene activity in mice and in humans. The four articles on this topic found new similarities but also differences. However, this was only the visible tip of a massive undertaking that gave rise to a dozen publications in all, in five different journals.

Pathologists as stewards of laboratory information
InsuranceNewsNet.com
Just as electronic health records are transforming the practice of medicine and health care information management, practicing in the era of the electronic health record offers opportunities, if not imperatives, for pathologists to take on new and "transformative" professional and leadership roles for the organizations they serve. Experience indicates that clinicians will perceive pathologists and laboratories as responsible for all aspects of laboratory testing and information management, including order entry and results reporting, even though such functions may fall beyond the control of the laboratory.

    Building a better mouse (trap): A new model of Huntington's disease
    HD Buzz
    Most research on Huntington's disease is done using animal models that mimic the human disease. However, these models typically recreate only a few of the disease's symptoms, and there are some important symptoms that don't show up in any model at all. Now, exciting new research is making great strides against these problems — and teaching us about the disease at the same time.

    Chemical tag marks future microRNAs for processing, study shows
    HealthCanal
    Just as two DNA strands naturally arrange themselves into a helix, DNA's molecular cousin RNA can form hairpin-like loops. But unlike DNA, which has a single job, RNA can play many parts — including acting as a precursor for small molecules that block the activity of genes. These small RNA molecules must be trimmed from long hairpin-loop structures, raising a question: How do cells know which RNA loops need to be processed this way and which don't?

    Use of culture-independent tests may hinder surveillance of enteric infections
    Healio
    The increased use of culture-independent diagnostic tests for bacterial enteric infections may be problematic as cultures are necessary for subtyping and public health surveillance, according to a report in MMWR. Currently, clinical labs obtain culture isolates, which are forwarded to public health laboratories for additional testing, according to the report. As labs increasingly adopt culture-independent diagnostic tests, the burden for cultures will fall on public health labs.
