Scientists created an odd couple: a modified version of an immune-signalling protein and a coordinately modified receptor for this protein. The two bind only to each other, easing an advanced anti-cancer therapy’s side effects.
Researchers report that they have developed a method for identifying splicing-based biomarkers for the most common form of liver cancer. They believe the method will be useful in other cancer types as well.
Genetically engineered cancer-killing T-cells can hunt and attack brain tumours that display a new molecular target that is highly prevalent on brain cancer cells, report researchers
Researchers have developed a new method for sifting through genomic data in search of genetic variants that have helped populations adapt to their environments.
Scientists have identified a single genetic change in Salmonella that is playing a key role in the devastating epidemic of bloodstream infections currently killing around 400,000 people each year in sub-Saharan Africa.
The theme of Rare Disease Day 2018 is research. Rare Disease UK asked Sam, mum to Issy, what taking part in research has meant for her family.
Learn more about Edico Genome’s new DRAGEN Virtual Long-Read Detection (VLRD) Pipeline, that’s the first variant caller dedicated to SDs, and is designed to run with short sequence reads generated at moderate coverage.
Fertility clinics treat abnormal vaginal bacteria aiming to improve reproductive outcome.
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.
