Analysis of bladder cancer patients shows a significantly worse prognosis if mutations in ATM or RB1 are present.
A controversial study has found that placing RNA from one sea slug into another appeared to transfer a simple version of a memory.
Researchers have uncovered a number of proteins that could play a critical role propagating signals within cells that can lead to uncontrolled cell growth—one of the hallmarks of cancer.
Researchers have developed a new technique for the powerful gene editing tool CRISPR to restore retinal function in mice afflicted by a degenerative retinal disease. This is the first time researchers have successfully applied CRISPR technology to a type of inherited disease known as a dominant disorder.
Participants covering all aspects of science met at this year’s Genome-Project-write, to discuss how they were going to construct an entire genome from scratch.
For those planning to become parents, advances in sequencing technologies could make preconception carrier screening more useful by looking at a much broader set of genes.
Scientists have located sections of DNA that appear to play a role in controlling whether an individual’s skin burns or tans, which has laid the groundwork for genetic tests that could predict people’s responses to sunlight.
Researchers have learned that artificial intelligence resembles the working of a human brain, opening up new possibilities to test how the brain works.
Schizophrenia is considered a disorder of the mind, influencing the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. But new research shows that organs, other than the brain, also change at the onset of the disease.
