US representatives are pressing genetic testing companies for details on their security systems and customer privacy policies.
Scientists have mapped 41 genes that increase the risk of developing hay fever, in a new study of almost 900,000 people. Of the genes, 20 are new to science.
Clinical trials involving probiotics are failing to report on the safety and harms of these treatments.
Scientists have discovered that CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing can cause greater genetic damage in cells than was previously thought.
Scientists have published one of the most detailed maps ever made of structural variations in a cancer cell’s genome.
A new method makes it possible to systematically identify specialised proteins that unpack DNA inside the nucleus of a cell, making the usually dense DNA more accessible for gene expression and other functions.
Males who spend time in low temperatures prior to mating will produce offspring with more active brown adipose tissue, according to new research in mice.
