The genetic roots of autism have been investigated for more than a decade, as DNA sequencing has continued to improve. A new study points to a particular mutation in mice causing autistic-like behavior, adding to a list of potential causes.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are asking for better tracking, and a gentler approach, for animal testing in the U.S.
Engineered probiotics can detect tumors in the liver.
About 90 percent of advanced prostate cancers have particular genetic mutations that can provide a target for cancer drugs. An international team of scientists say they have cataloged a comprehensive map of those mutations in metastatic prostate cancers, in a paper published in the journal Cell.

Researchers discover the genes that cause the buff-tailed bumblebee to develop into a male, worker or queen.
Researchers have designed a small and simple chip to test for antibiotic resistance in just one hour, giving doctors a shot at picking the most effective antibiotic to treat potentially deadly infections. Their work was was published this week in the international journal Lab on a Chip.
Humans are able to learn abstract relations even before the first year of life.
Cancer cells are shifty characters. They use a number of dirty tricks to survive and infiltrate the body. Now scientists are fighting back with some sneaky strategies of their own. A study published in Cancer Discovery describes how researchers have created new decoy drugs that can intercept the deceptive growth signals that cancer cells send out.
Researchers have identified a master genetic regulator that could account for faulty brain functions that contribute to schizophrenia.
The World Health Assembly agreed on resolutions to tackle antimicrobial resistance; improve access to affordable vaccines and address over- and under-nutrition.
Research delivers new data for stem cell scientists to more accurately study infertility.
A gene essential to the production of pain-sensing neurons in humans has been identified by an international team of researchers. The discovery, reported in the journal Nature Genetics, could have implications for the development of new methods of pain relief.
Researchers find only 40 seconds of green can make a huge difference to productivity
Researchers have figured out how to create spheres of neuronal cells resembling the cerebral cortex, making functional human brain tissue available for the first time to study neuropsychiatric diseases such as autism and schizophrenia
