Researchers have discovered a molecular mechanism that may help to explain how viruses that cause chronic infections, such as HIV or hepatitis c virus, manage to outsmart their hosts’ immune systems.
Diagnostics allow for the identification of cancer types and other crucial biomarkers, and are used right through from discovery to market.
For young children with cystic fibrosis, the lungs’ bacterial population changes in the first few years of life as respiratory infections and inflammation set in, new research suggests.
Two viruses closely related to Zika—West Nile and Powassan—can spread from an infected pregnant mouse to her fetuses, causing brain damage and fetal death, a new study suggests.
Researchers have made new inroads into understanding germ cell tumours, a diverse and rare group of cancers that begin in germ cells — the cells that develop into sperm and eggs.
Paul focuses on the possibilities for big data in biomedicine, using computationally intensive approaches, including deep learning and graph databases.
The FDA has approved the very first algorithm that monitors a patient’s vitals to help predict sudden death from heart attacks or respiratory failure.
“My Greatest Achievement Has Been Overcoming My Own Shyness to Advocate My Disabled Child” – Judith Sheppard
Judith Sheppard is the parent of a 22-year-old young man with FOXG1 Syndrome. We’ve had a chat with her before her talk “Finding the Needle in the Haystack” at the Festival of Genomics in London 2018.
Seizures and mood disorders such as depression may share the same genetic cause in some people with epilepsy, a new study suggests.
