The FDA has announced a plan to modernise its approach to evaluating new drugs for Alzheimer’s and other neurologic diseases.
Researchers report that they have developed a method for identifying splicing-based biomarkers for the most common form of liver cancer. They believe the method will be useful in other cancer types as well.
One new gene editing technique is so precise, it’s almost shocking. MhAX, as it’s called, uses CRISPR and a DNA repair system to alter a single DNA base in the human genome.
A large-scale study provides evidence that the connection between microbiome and health may be even more important than we thought.
Genetically engineered cancer-killing T-cells can hunt and attack brain tumours that display a new molecular target that is highly prevalent on brain cancer cells, report researchers
Researchers have developed a new method for sifting through genomic data in search of genetic variants that have helped populations adapt to their environments.
Scientists have identified a single genetic change in Salmonella that is playing a key role in the devastating epidemic of bloodstream infections currently killing around 400,000 people each year in sub-Saharan Africa.
A USD $5 million technology prize aims to crack the origin of the genetic code. The Evolution 2.0 Prize was announced at Arizona State University in August 2017. The largest “origin of life” prize to date, it seeks to bridge the gap between chemistry, genomics and modern computing.
GenomeAsia 100k are trying to close the genetic gap that exists in the South Asian population, by seeking to sequence 100 genomes from the region.
Researchers have found that DNA’s remarkable properties of self-assembly and its ability to conduct electrical charge over considerable distance make it ideally suited for myriad applications.
