Researchers have come up with a tool that offers a means of control over engineered cells, and it comes from a seemingly unlikely source — the hepatitis C genome.
The US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has approved adding a test for spinal muscular atrophy to the list of recommended newborn screens in the United States.
Researchers at Caltech have developed an artificial neural network made out of DNA that can solve a classic machine learning problem: Correctly identifying handwritten numbers.
People living in England will be the first in the world to have access to DNA tests as routine care starting this fall, putting the NHS at the forefront of healthcare, as it takes a huge step towards precision medicine.
Scientists have identified a molecular pathway that allows females to be more resilient to maternal stress than males which might explain why males are more at risk than females for neurodevelopmental disorders.
As the NHS celebrates its 70th birthday, Genomics England announces that it has now passed the 70,000 genomes mark.
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, genetic testing can offer important information that might guide treatment choices. A new study finds that surgeons are a key influence.
The koala genome, published today, identifies powerful anti-bacterials in milk that protect the baby koala from disease – and may provide humans with the next generation of antibiotics.
The discovery of molecular rules that regulate the transfer of genetic material between bacteria could help prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance.
The “Born in Guangzhou Cohort Study” is looking to recruit 50,000 baby-mother sets by 2020. Since 2012, 1.6 million samples have been collected for the project and the some of the first findings have been published.
Researchers have discovered that men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing glioma.
Tiny snippets of genetic material called microRNA may offer a way to detect conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease earlier, according to a new study.
