A new gene associated with disease severity in models of rheumatoid arthritis has been identified by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
A detailed chemical model must generated to help support theories before we can decide what’s the truth behind the emergence of life on earth, and researchers at the Weizmann Institute have developed it.
Zika virus may be sexually transmissible for a shorter period than previously estimated, according to a new systematic review.
A team of tiny molecules that work together to make cancer cells less aggressive has been discovered by Australian researchers.
New research presented this week at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) 2018, is suggesting that the liver could be contributing to Alzheimer’s risk by failing to supply key lipids to the brain.
Researchers have found a genetic material related to the Ebola Virus in mouse-eared bats thats remained largely unchanged for over 18 million years. The study sheds light on the gene’s possible function in bats, suggesting that it may play a role in regulating the immune system’s response to threats.
By identifying and characterizing specific types of mutations in individual cell lines, using a combination of whole genome sequencing and multi-omic approaches, researchers hope to improve stem cells’ therapeutic uses and potential.
Although primarily influenced by environmental and social factors, years of schooling are also influenced by genes associated with cognitive function such as memory and personality traits.
New video shows how pieces of DNA once thought to be useless can act as on-off switches for genes.
The National Institute on Aging Genetics of Alzheimer’s Disease Data Storage Site (NIAGADS) will begin making large-scale DNA sequence data available to investigators.
