Researchers from the University of Alabama have identified a method by which it is possible to reduce the signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and hair loss, in mice.
For the first time, an artificial mouse embryo has successfully passed a critical developmental milestone in the lab.
A new study provides the first evidence of how the human brain recovers the ability to function after losing parts of the visual system.
Scientists have uncovered a potential new role for long noncoding RNA in obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Researchers may have found a weakness in a protein that delivers the flu virus that could be a useful target to stop the virus from infecting cells.
The DNA sequencing market in China is expected to reach 18.3B Yuan by 2022, rising from 7.2B Yuan last year at a much greater rate than the overall global market.
A gene that’s associated with an autoimmune form of hair loss could be exploited to improve cancer immunotherapy, suggests a new mouse study by Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) researchers.
New research from Indiana University has identified “hotspots” in DNA where the risk for genetic mutations is significantly elevated.
To find out which DNA repair enzymes are critical to homology-directed repair after CRISPR cutting, researchers have knocked out, one at a time, more than 2,000 genes known or suspected to be involved in DNA repair, a function critical to a healthy cell.
With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images for signs of disease. Will this technology replace doctors – or work side by side with them?
Scientists have long thought that regions of DNA called telomeres control how long you live. We are now learning that it is your diet and lifestyle that shape your telomeres, not the other way around.
The NIH has committed up to $45.5M to support its Somatic Cell Genome Editing programme. The money will make up a series of grants to be paid over the next four fiscal years.
A type of enzyme called matrix metalloproteinase could be key to the development of “smart” cancer drugs, according to new research.
A small population of brain cells deep in a memory-making region of the brain controls the production of new neurons and may have a role in common brain disorders.
Scientists have discovered a naturally occurring disease in monkeys that mimics a deadly childhood neurodegenerative disorder in people — a finding that holds promise for developing new gene therapies to treat Batten disease.
