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.
It doesn’t just seem like the world is experiencing more viral infections than before – it’s a reality. And the way humans live today helps viruses thrive.
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.

“Artificial ovaries” are offering an alternative, safer, option for women that are infertile following chemotherapy treatment as for the first time ever, scientists have successfully isolated viable, early stage follicles in ovarian tissue scaffold in mice.
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.
Why are consumers so reluctant to embrace genetically modified foods? A new study suggests agricultural biotech companies are failing to show consumers a personal benefit to buying GM foods.
