Skyhawk Therapeutics, focused on the discovery and development of small molecule therapeutics that correct RNA expression, has announced the close of $8 million in seed funding led by major family and biotech investors.
The Human Genome Project has been awarded the 2017 Prince Mahidol Award for ground-breaking advances in the field of medicine.
Researchers have discovered a new cause of a rare condition knows as cblC, in which patients can’t process vitamin B12, leading to severe health problems. They report the condition, which they named “epi-cblC,” in patients from Europe and the United States.
Sphere Fluidics, a company providing single cell analysis systems underpinned by its patented picodroplet technology, has today announced the expansion of its international commercial operations.
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 new nanopore technology for direct sequencing of long strands of DNA has resulted in the most complete human genome ever assembled with a single technology.
A systematic study uncovering multiple new and unusual bacterial immune defence mechanisms could pave the way toward new biotech tools.
Storing data in DNA is a lot easier than getting it back out, but a team of researchers has designed a system that could solve all these problems.
Researchers have released a software called Scikit-Ribo that can help biologists more accurately determine how much protein a given cell is making.
Extensive research into the genetic spread across Ireland and Britain has found that they have massively underestimated Irish Viking heritage.
