Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in collaboration with physicians, have conducted a study in mice, in which they used existing drugs in a new combination to help crush potential resistance to treatment.
Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline has bought a $300 million stake in genetic DTC testing company 23andMe to help further their genetics-based drug discovery.
New research presented this week at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) 2018, is suggesting that the liver could be contributing to Alzheimer’s risk by failing to supply key lipids to the brain.
The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research has awarded a $1 million grant to the NYGC to help investigate the genomic factors of cancer in ethnically diverse populations.
Researchers have found a genetic material related to the Ebola Virus in mouse-eared bats thats remained largely unchanged for over 18 million years. The study sheds light on the gene’s possible function in bats, suggesting that it may play a role in regulating the immune system’s response to threats.
Researchers from Indiana University have managed to capture real-time video of a bacterium reaching out to grab a fragment of cell free DNA for the first time.
By identifying and characterizing specific types of mutations in individual cell lines, using a combination of whole genome sequencing and multi-omic approaches, researchers hope to improve stem cells’ therapeutic uses and potential.
Although primarily influenced by environmental and social factors, years of schooling are also influenced by genes associated with cognitive function such as memory and personality traits.
The National Institute on Aging Genetics of Alzheimer’s Disease Data Storage Site (NIAGADS) will begin making large-scale DNA sequence data available to investigators.
UNIGE researchers have identified the gene responsible for a recessive genetic disorder that causes degeneration of the eye and blindness.
Long term cannabis use is harming the brain, says researchers. The study presents evidence to suggest that long-term use of either cannabis or cannabis-based drugs impairs memory.
HLI is suing the J. Craig Venter Institute under the allegation that Craig Venter misappropriated and passed on trade secrets when he left HLI in May.
Two new research studies have identified a method by which bacteriophages can cooperate in order to infect bacterial cells with CRISPR defence mechanisms.
US representatives are pressing genetic testing companies for details on their security systems and customer privacy policies.
A comprehensive analysis of published research, suggests that there is not enough evidence to claim genetic links to dietary recommendations.
