During the Festival of Genomics London, global biotech company, Dante Labs announced the launch of its privately funded 10,000 European Genome Project.
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.
A systematic study uncovering multiple new and unusual bacterial immune defence mechanisms could pave the way toward new biotech tools.
Extensive research into the genetic spread across Ireland and Britain has found that they have massively underestimated Irish Viking heritage.
To help you plan your visit, or perhaps inspire you to sign up for your free place, we’ve put together a handy guide to this year’s theme, and some of our top picks from the agenda.
Southern Illinois University’s medical school has halted all herpes research, one of its most high-profile projects, amid growing controversy over a researcher’s unauthorized methods offshore and in the U.S.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical tool to validate and improve methods used by medical professionals to interpret results from clinical genetic tests.
Mice can mimic human breast cancer tissue and its genes, even more so than previously thought, as well as other cancers including lung, oral, and oesophagus, a new study suggests.
What’s blockchain technology, how, and why was it developed, and why is everyone talking about it? Alex Schmid provides us with an overview of challenges blockchain technology can help solve within life sciences, and what about it, that makes it so suitable.
Although very much disagreeing with biohacking practices, and strongly discouraging them, the FDA has never actually intervened themselves with individuals. Should they?
Researchers have developed a way to make simple, self-assembling DNA ‘robots’ that can rotate and function like latches. Combined, they can be used as nano-scale cargo carriers that respond to electromagnetic commands via remote control.
We bring genomics to the UK in our latest issue, as we look ahead to what this year’s Festival of Genomics London has to offer.
