Cancer cells that are starved of oxygen because of rapid tumour growth may be more susceptible to certain types of drugs, a new study shows.
By analysing more than 125 existing datasets, researchers have revealed that DIP-seq, one of the most widely used methods in epigenetics research, commonly detected DNA sequences that did not have any epigenetic marks.
Our faces can reveal a lot about us, and now scientists are revealing a lot about faces. Research into the genetics that shapes the face has made tremendous advances in recent years.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug derived from Marijuana to treat two rare and severe forms of epilepsy. Will the U.K. follow?
A report has highlighted the potential misuses of synthetic biology for biological warfare with recommendations of how we might prepare for and prevent biological attacks.
There’s no therapy developed yet, that can stop cancer cells from moving throughout the body. New research shows that it may be possible to do so, in freezing cancer cells and killing them where they stand.
Scientists seeking to unlock secrets of cellular ageing have identified a gene that triggers senescence, a phenomenon in which cells stop dividing.
Psychiatric disorders share many genetic variants, while neurological disorders appear more distinct, according to a new study from the Brainstorm Consortium.
A survey of people who have taken part in clinical trials indicates that participants care more about the benefits to science than the risk of sharing their personal data.
A mechanism enabling cells to bind and isolate toxic substances could have significant implications for how tumours develop resistance to certain types of chemotherapy.
Researchers have developed a new method for correcting the errors that creep into DNA barcodes, yielding far more accurate results and paving the way for more ambitious medical research in the future.
