A new type of zebrafish that produces fluorescent tags in migratory embryonic nerve precursor cells could help researchers find the origins of the third-most common pediatric cancer in the U.S.
Males who spend time in low temperatures prior to mating will produce offspring with more active brown adipose tissue, according to new research in mice.
Scientists have discovered a “big bang” of Alzheimer’s disease — the precise point at which a healthy protein becomes toxic but has not yet formed deadly tangles in the brain.
Dogs’ ancestors in the Americas almost totally disappeared hundreds of years ago, but left future generations a cancerous tumour that is still found in their canine descendants today, researchers say.
Researchers have for the first time, used gene-editing tools in adult monkeys to disable a gene throughout much of the liver.
There are very few reported cases of children inheriting almost all of their genes from a single parent, but this 11-year-old girl is the first one so far without any signs of cancer.
Researchers have for the first time used a gene editing technique to successfully cure a genetic condition in a mouse model.
A single administration of a therapeutic vector in mouse models cures type 2 diabetes and obesity in the absence of long-term side effects, researchers report.
Researchers have developed a gentle, contact-free method that uses sound waves to separate circulating tumour cells from blood samples quickly and efficiently enough for clinical use.
New research could allow us greater control over what happens to genetically modified organisms once they’re in the wild.
Researchers have for the first time succeeded in converting human skin cells into pluripotent stem cells by activating the cell’s own genes, using gene editing technology CRISPRa.
CRISPR gene drives have been tested in laboratory mice for the first time, offering a way in which multiple genes in mice can be altered to model complex multigenic human diseases. Could this step eventually lead to the eradication of pest species or is the technology still too controversial?
A new technique for precisely targeting molecules within cells is paving the way for safer medicines that are free of side effects.
