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.
Researchers at the University of Oulu in Finland have discovered novel genes and mechanisms that can explain how a genomic variant in a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs11672691 influences prostate cancer aggressiveness.
Elementary cytoskeleton protein is different in parasites and represents a starting point for a possible new therapy against malaria infections.
Genome research suggests that enteric fever, a potentially lethal disease more commonly found in hot countries, was present in medieval Europe.
