At the end of last week, we were informed of the sad passing of Nobel-prize winner, Sir John Sulston. To pay our respects, we take a look back at his career milestones.
When researchers tested the susceptibility of mice lacking calnexin to a mouse model of human MS (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis), they were astonished to find that the mice were completely resistant to the disease.
Researchers have developed a gene therapy that successfully treats a form of macular degeneration in a canine model. Following safety studies, a human clinical trial could be less than two years away.
To unearth new functional regions in the human genome with potential roles in shaping clinically important traits, researchers are using animals with extraordinary traits to reveal new elements.
Brain scientists have filmed a first-of-a-kind birth video. It reveals specialized cells in the brains of mice dividing to create newborn nerve cells.
An all-female freshwater fish species is living proof that sexual reproduction may be vastly over-rated, as it’s discovered that it doesn’t have the genetic flaws once thought.
Researchers have unlocked the secret behind why the greater mouse-eared bat lives so long, with even some hints for fighting the effects of ageing in people.
A new animal study involving virally-delivered gene therapies has indicated that high treatment doses might not be as safe as previous human trials have suggested
