A small pilot study presented at the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology 2018, suggest that DNA shed from early embryos could one day provide an alternative way of genetically testing them without having to do a biopsy.
The enzyme TLK2 displays lower levels of activity in intellectual disability, and overactivity in cases of breast cancer, say researchers.
Scientists have created a new way to view proteins inside human cells. The method allows an electron microscope to view proteins precisely, unlike current methods.
Founded in 1790, the Patent Office aimed to put innovation and entrepreneurship within reach of every citizen. Now, 10 million patents later, critics say an out-of-touch system is doing the opposite.
Researchers in the UK have invented a switch that allows them to turn protein expression off and on at will, potentially offering a control over gene editing tools.
Researchers at Caltech have developed an artificial neural network made out of DNA that can solve a classic machine learning problem: Correctly identifying handwritten numbers.
People living in England will be the first in the world to have access to DNA tests as routine care starting this fall, putting the NHS at the forefront of healthcare, as it takes a huge step towards precision medicine.
Scientists have identified a molecular pathway that allows females to be more resilient to maternal stress than males which might explain why males are more at risk than females for neurodevelopmental disorders.
It doesn’t just seem like the world is experiencing more viral infections than before – it’s a reality. And the way humans live today helps viruses thrive.
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, genetic testing can offer important information that might guide treatment choices. A new study finds that surgeons are a key influence.
New research links higher body fat with lower breast cancer risk before menopause.
“Artificial ovaries” are offering an alternative, safer, option for women that are infertile following chemotherapy treatment as for the first time ever, scientists have successfully isolated viable, early stage follicles in ovarian tissue scaffold in mice.
The koala genome, published today, identifies powerful anti-bacterials in milk that protect the baby koala from disease – and may provide humans with the next generation of antibiotics.
