Researchers have found the first evidence that non-human animals can mentally replay past events from memory. The discovery could help advance the development of new drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
A bit of advice for any criminals inspired to try and edit their own genes – it’s unlikely to work, and it may present health risks.
Researchers have learned that artificial intelligence resembles the working of a human brain, opening up new possibilities to test how the brain works.
Schizophrenia is considered a disorder of the mind, influencing the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. But new research shows that organs, other than the brain, also change at the onset of the disease.
Most people don’t like going to the doctor. That’s why Theodoros Zanos, a researcher at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, is working on a technology that might one day be able to listen to, and decode the body’s electrical signals, catching warning signs of illness.
The Allen Institute for Cell Science has launched the first predictive and comprehensive, 3D model of a live human cell.
Researchers have developed a specially engineered retinal patch to treat people with sudden, severe sight loss.
The funds will be used to support the next phase in creating Luna DNA’s genomic and medical research platform and enlisting data contributors.
Under the settlement agreement, Oxford Nanopore will refrain from offering its 2D sequencing products in the UK and Germany through the end of 2023.
George Church’s idea is to “have the body and mind of a 22-year-old but the experience of a 130-year-old,” and himself might be one of the first volunteers to try the approach in humans.
Scientists have discovered the first example of a gene that is only found in one sex, and provides protection against cancers including an aggressive form of leukaemia.
Approximately 75,000 genetic tests are currently on the market and on average 10 more are added each day, as DNA sequencing costs plummet.
Researchers are trying to boost the effectiveness of cancer-killing viruses to treat conditions, including brain tumours.
While some people are warning about artificial intelligence leading to killer robots, researchers are showing the positive impact of A.I. in its potential to overcome disease.
Science has entered into a new realm, sitting somewhere between Uber and Airbnb, and it’s all down the rise in demand for sequencing services.
