Researchers have for the first time used a gene editing technique to successfully cure a genetic condition in a mouse model.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers have come up with a tool that offers a means of control over engineered cells, and it comes from a seemingly unlikely source — the hepatitis C genome.
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.
Chinese investors have poured more money into the US biotech market in the first six months of 2018 than they did in the entirety of last year.
Why are consumers so reluctant to embrace genetically modified foods? A new study suggests agricultural biotech companies are failing to show consumers a personal benefit to buying GM foods.
