For the first time, an artificial mouse embryo has successfully passed a critical developmental milestone in the lab.
To find out which DNA repair enzymes are critical to homology-directed repair after CRISPR cutting, researchers have knocked out, one at a time, more than 2,000 genes known or suspected to be involved in DNA repair, a function critical to a healthy cell.
Personalised medicine has been a goal of researchers and doctors for a long time. Now, researchers have developed what they call a personalised Therapeutic Intervention Fingerprint (pTIF), for patients with neurological disease.
Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
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.
Scientists have discovered a “big bang” of Alzheimer’s disease — the precise point at which a healthy protein becomes toxic but has not yet formed deadly tangles in the brain.
Researchers have for the first time succeeded in converting human skin cells into pluripotent stem cells by activating the cell’s own genes, using gene editing technology CRISPRa.
A new technique for precisely targeting molecules within cells is paving the way for safer medicines that are free of side effects.
The enzyme TLK2 displays lower levels of activity in intellectual disability, and overactivity in cases of breast cancer, say researchers.
Scientists have created a new way to view proteins inside human cells. The method allows an electron microscope to view proteins precisely, unlike current methods.
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.
