DNA analysis from the remains of ancient Southeast Asian individuals has helped reveal new migration events.
Results of an international collaboration report a new association between the PM20D1 gene and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Brain Science have discovered a mutation that can protect against Alzheimer’s disease in mice.
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.
